In other news related to Rasta, Briefly.co.za reported that a few weeks ago he took to Twitter to share a snap of himself working on a portrait of Minister of Social Development Lindiwe Zulu.
It appeared Rasta, who is infamous for his paintings of deceased SA icons, was 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."
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.
