- Rasta has sparked quite the reaction on Twitter again with his latest artwork
- The infamous artist was photographed doing a portrait of Siya Kolisi in the spirit of the moment as the Springboks arrived home from Japan
- Social media users were not impressed by the drawing and told Rasta to stick to painting deceased people
Lebani “Rasta” Sirenje has been in a love-hate relationship with South Africans for a while now. Although he sometimes nails portraits of the people he paints, a lot of the times he misses.
After the Springboks walked away with the Rugby World Cup, Rasta decided to pay tribute to Siya Kolisi by painting him.
Rasta was at OR Tambo International Airport waiting for the Springboks to return home and he passed the time by drawing the Bok captain.
Social media users were not impressed with Rasta's portrait of Kolisi and tweeps told him to stick to drawing people who have passed away.
Twitter user, @NicholarJiyane, commented:
"Someone stop Rasta please. Kolisi is still alive and is our hero."
Another tweep, @nomaseyh, added: "Doesn't look anything like Siya Kolisi. Maybe Rasta should paint at home not in public and stadiums."
Briefly.co.za reported earlier on five great moments captured at OR Tambo. Among those who waited to welcomed the Boks home was Miss SA.
Zozibini Tunzi shared a video of her very quick meeting with Springbok captain, Siya Kolisi. People were left wondering how long it would take for Rachel Kolisi to notice the 'love' that was flowing.
