Rasta is at it again but this time he received a thumbs-up from Mzansi social media users. Earlier this year, businessman Richard Maponya passed away at the age of 99.

His funeral was held on Tuesday and infamous artist Rasta - a well-known funeral painter - attended the event.

Rasta was caught on camera quietly sitting at the funeral, painting the late beloved businessman. A photo of him working went viral and South Africans had a different reaction to his portrait of Maponya.

We took a look at some of the comments the Rasta's latest portrait gathered online.

Twitter user, @Bhuti_Yanchaza, commented:

"I personally think that Rasta is a great artist and all those botched portraits were done intentionally to get our attention. That was Rasta's #Vision2020 and he's achieved it."
