- Many locals soon headed to the comment section to share their thoughts on Rasta's decision to paint the politicians
The Julius Malema and Jacob Zuma tea party seemed to be the talk of the town this past week - and Rasta the controversial South African artist naturally did not let the whole thing pass without him dedicating a special painting in honour of the occasion.
Heading to Twitter, Rasta unveiled his latest work which features Malema and Zuma enjoying their tea. While the original picture featured the two politicians smiling broadly, Rasta opted to forgo adding faces to his painting.
"The tea was very hot. @EFFSouthAfrica @ANCParliament #NkandlaTeaParty," he captioned his latest set of work.
Meanwhile, Mzansi was quick to take to the comment section to share their thoughts on Rasta's latest contribution to both politics and the South African art atmosphere. Read their comments below:
"You are on the right track Rasta, please don't disappoint us... in you we trust."
"O dirile gole gontsi, ke ge o kano stopa gona mo. Danko."
"Rasta I see something good coming, please don't disappoint."
"The only thing you did good Rasta, it's Msholozi's head."
"Yibambe apho ke grootman, now would be the best time for you to outsource and get someone to finish the job for you."
Briefly.co.za also reported that Rasta, Lebani Sirenje, has done it again. He has painted a portrait of the late Dr Sibongile Khumalo and South African social media users have some questions and observations.
