Rasta decided to celebrate his birthday by doing something different, he decided to paint himself and social media users were not disappointed.
In fact, it was just what they expected and the usual jokes and jobes ensued as South Africans took to social media to react to Rasta's latest artwork.
He captioned his post with the following:
"Thanks to everyone who pulled through to celebrate my birthday. Really appreciate the love."
Rasta also posted a picture of him working on the project:
Here is what Mzansi had to say about his artwork:
"You don't disappoint. Enjoy your year, don't let anyone dim your light."
"Happy belated birthday Rasta. We thank God for you, coz you make our gloomy days bright whenever we come across your paintings."
"Uyinto yokulahlwa wenayou can’t even draw yourself."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that On Tuesday, artist Lebani Sirenje - who is infamously known as Rasta - honoured Julius Malema on his birthday.
Taking to his Twitter page, Rasta wished Juju a happy birthday and he showed off the portrait he had done of the EFF leader.
His post read:
"Happy birthday and more life CIC Julius Malema."
Rasta is at it again, this time producing a portrait of Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma while she temporarily led South Africa.
Briefly.co.za reported that both President Cyril Ramaphosa and deputy president David Mabuza had been occupied overseas with the BRICS summit, leaving Dlamini-Zuma in charge.
Rasta decided it was high time he gave the politician his signature treatment and Mzansi gave the artist their opinions.
Lebani “Rasta” Sirenje has been in a love-hate relationship with South Africans for a while now. Although he sometimes nails portraits of the people he paints, a lot of the times he misses.
One of these fails included his rendition of Springbok captain Siya Kolisi, who got the Rasta treatment while the artist awaited the national team's homecoming from their Rugby World Cup win.
