Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Artist Lebani Sirenje - who is infamously known as Rasta - honoured Diego Maradona shortly after his passing.
The artist is notorious for painting tributes of deceased celebrities and people were worried that the might "honour" Maradona and possibly embarrass South Africa.
Rasta has been busy this month, only days ago he painted a tribute to the late musician Mshoza whose funeral is being held today.
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"
