Haibo, Rasta was the butt of jokes again last week when he showed off the portrait he painted of President Cyril Ramaphosa and his wife, Tshepo Motsepe, on Heritage Day.
Although the infamous artist, whose real name is Lebani Sirenje, did not show off his dance moves in the Jerusalema Challenge, he did honour the head of state with a painting.
Taking to Twitter, Rasta shared a photo of the portrait and captioned it:
"Let's celebrate our heritage with our honourable president @CyrilRamaphosa and his wife. Don't forget to do the #jerusalemachallenge."
Take a look at the post below:
South Africans had some pretty savage, and hilarious, reactions to Rasta's painting of the head of state and the first lady.
Twitter user, @Nohayi, commented:
"You should charged with treason wena Rasta."
Another tweep, @eMKayyy5, wrote:
"I honestly can't be the only one who thought this was a mock of Julius Malema and Cyril... Because the lady looks a lot like Julius Malema."
Poor Rasta can't seem to catch a break. Even when he does manage to get things right, South Africans still roasts him.
Briefly.co.za reported on Monday that the artist showed off a portrait he painted of Prophet Mboro. Although Saffas were impressed by his painting, they still managed to poke fun at Rasta.
One person commented:
"You draw those still alive well because you know they will beat you and you draw the dead funny because they can't defend themselves. We see you."
In other news, a man decided to share photos of his crib in honour of his late mom. Michael Boshielo apologised to his mom for not getting a proper education but showed off his house to prove that he is still a success.
Boshielo shared before and after snaps of the house and the end product is absolutely stunning. Taking to Twitter, the man captioned the photos:
"Mom I'm not as educated as you wished. But this is my little present to you. As I promised I will never forget where I come from."
