Social media users reacted to the latest "masterpiece" by Rasta and some people think he mixed the soccer legend up with Bruce Lee:


"I like your courage...... The believe you have in your talent is second to none..... Sometimes it's not the end results that count... But the road leading up to achieving what you believe to have... Don't give up in your dreams Rasta."


"As a country, we will eventually get to a point where we realise that @RastaArtist is an unorthodox sublimely gifted artist. Keep doing your thing man! Love your passion."

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Rasta is at it again, this time he has painted the late musician Mshoza and as usual, Mzansi is not thrilled with his work.

People have taken to Twitter to voice their disappointment at Rasta's latest art piece and some are asking him to stop.

Others are begging people not to encourage him or he might embarrass South Africa by painting the late Diego Maradona.

In other news, Mlindo The Vocalist has taken to social media to share that he needs an urgent meeting with Rasta after a portrait of him was shared online.

The amused Mlindo doesn't think the picture looks anything like him. Mzansi social media users, however, were quick to come to Rasta's defence as the artwork was not by him.

The amused singer shared the picture on his Twitter account and captioned it:

"I need a meeting with Rasta"
