- Rasta has once again made a cabinet member his latest muse
- The infamous 'funeral artist' painted a portrait of Lindiwe Zulu
- He posted a snap of the work of art online and South Africans reacted in true Mzansi style
On Friday, Rasta took to Twitter to share a snap of himself working on a portrait of Minister of Social Development, Lindiwe Zulu.
It appears Rasta, who is infamous for his paintings of deceased SA icons, appears to be doing a series on the president's cabinet members.
In one of the hashtags he used, Rasta hinted that he might be doing 30 portraits for the lockdown and the ministers might just be his muses.
He simply captioned his images:
"Cabinet member: Lindiwe Zulu, Minister of Social Development."
Take a look at the post below:
The portrait sparked a reaction from tweeps - some said he should paint the ministers one by one while others offered their honest reviews of his work.
Nhlanhla Mlotshwa, who goes by the Twitter handle @nhlanhla_365, commented:
"Kubo Rasta! Paint them one by one."
Another tweep, @Allan_2801, added:
"I am waiting for @tito_mboweni painting."
Social media user, @Mhlekaz78075367, said:
"Wrong turn baba, 30 days of night."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported Rasta also painted a portrait of Fikile Mbalula. The transport minister was not too enthusiastic about being Rasta's recent muse and said that he hopes the artist was not foretelling the future.
His anxious response to the portrait was met with amusement from political figures and social media users. Mmusi Maimane commented by laughing under the post.
