Hundreds of South Africans recently sprung into action after influential South African Tumi Sole asked for help locating a talented young artist who he apparently wanted to urgently get in touch with.
Taking to Twitter, Sole shared a picture of the young South African artist standing next to an incredibly detailed and well-done portrait that he was seemingly adding a few finishing touches to.
"Please help @TembekaNgcukai1 & I to locate this artist," Sole captioned the Twitter post.
Twitter was seemingly the right place to start the search as soon many South Africans started offering bits and pieces of information about the mystery artist. Others simply complimented his work.
Read a few of their tweets below.
"It's Mkize without the H his from the EC, he's the same dude who painted another beautiful portrait of mam Winnie. I've seen his work on Instagram, the guy is very good."
"He is operating at Bedworth Park in Vanderbiltpark opposite Pick n Pay."
"Can't we hook you up with Rasta the artist in the meanwhile? He is highly recommended."
"He must take over from Rasta. Rasta must retire wth immediate effect."
"The future CJ of South Africa. @TembekaNgcukai1 please get that portrait for your CJ office lol."
In other Briefly.co.za news, Rasta has shown off his latest work after giving Big Zulu his best shot on New Year's. The South African artist took to social media to give Mzansi a glimpse at the artwork, captioning it:
"2020 is the year siyenza imali eningi, wallets zethu zequmbe, nina nithini."
This time around Mzansi was certain that the art actually did resemble a local celebrity, Rasta himself. Take a look at just a few of the responses to the post below: @Ori_Debig_Beats: "Drawing yourself might be nice mmmh."
