On Sunday, a tweep posted a snap of a Tupac statue which was allegedly built in Dallas in the US. The late rappers' fans across the world weren't impressed and many said it looked nothing like him.
South Africans joined American Twitter to roast the statue and some pointed a finger at an infamous painter - Lebani "Rasta" Sirenje.
Social media user, @umanyathi, commented:
"Did Rasta do this? That ain’t Tupac."
James Katso, who goes by the Twitter handle @james_katso, added:
"Rasta has struck again, this time it's Tupac."
Twitter parody account Man's Not Barry Roux wrote:
"This Tupac statue in Dallas was done by our very own Rasta. Rasta is international now."
