- The strange-looking ANC celebration cake has been trending via social media
- The ANC-themed cake caught the attention of South Africans and some wondered whether it had been commissioned by the ruling party
- The ANC is celebrating its 108th birthday and some questioned whether notorious artist Rasta was the mastermind behind the unique cake
Although Janu-worry has gotten the better of most South Africans, the ANC has reason to celebrate as it turned 108 this month.
One thing that their birthday celebration is known for is the ANC-inspired cakes, displaying the party’s famous colours.
A recent trend is the unveiling and cutting of the lavish cakes via photos on social media.
Coincidentally, an odd-looking cake has started trending on Twitter and seems to have been created with the ANC in mind.
However, due to its unique and quirky look, some have likened it to the work of notorious artist, Rasta.
Rasta has become synonymous with paintings of well-known celebrities that often deviate substantially from what the person actually looks like.
Twitter user Man’s NOT Barry Roux (@AdvoBarryRoux) shared the odd creation and Briefly.co.za noted the humorous responses from others.
Benjamin Malatsi (@ibe_Benjy) asked:
“Kanti who gets these tenders?”
Mbatha Linda Mandla (@linMan_M) agreed with the Rasta theory:
“It has his signature written all over it.”
Vinny Vee (@VinnyVee5) joked,
“If corruption was a cake.”
Lionel Plaatjies (@PlaatjiesLionel) responded,
“Seems legit this looks very much like ANC things If you ask me.”
