South Africa's favourite news anchor Leanne Manas recently surprised social media users after she shared pictures of herself and Rasta with the portrait he painted of her in celebration of her birthday recently.
Leanne took to Twitter on Monday morning to share the pictures as well as to inform her followers that she has since decided to purchase the portrait even though it looks nothing like her. Her tweet read as follows:
"Happy Monday y’all!! Look who I went to visit this weekend @RastaArtis. She is safely in her new home."
Her followers were very surprised at the anchor's decision to buy the portrait since she had initially tweeted that she did not recognise the person in the portrait after Rasta shared it with her online. Read a few of their comments below.
"Why would you go & fetch a stranger and bring it to your home?"
"I think Rasta did further touches to Leanne's portrait. It looks much better now."
"I once thought @LeanneManas was a white lady until she acted exactly like our mothers eKasie. Jokes aside, you are such a great person Leanne. Mornings are always completed with your Godly presence."
While this portrait has been a successful endeavour for the controversial artist, Briefly.co.za previously reported he may have some competition. A Twitter user has recently taken the time to make an appreciation post of an unnamed local artist who makes the most incredible sculptures. In the post, @nkosi_tj shared a picture of the artist working on a sculpture.
There were also other pictures of the hardworking man's previously completed sculptures. Nelson Mandela, President Cyril Ramaphosa and a few other prominent figures were among the man's impressive showcase of lifelike looking sculptures.
Many Twitter users loved the man's work, liking the Twitter post over 2 000 times. They also took to the comments section to share some thoughts and compliments with the guy. Many of them thought he was a much better artist than Rasta.
