Rasta seems to have finally caught a break from his army of critics after he headed online to share a snap of himself holding two paintings which he had done to honour the late King Goodwill Zwelithini, who recently passed on.
In the caption of his post, the controversial artist also explains that he has travelled from Johannesburg to KwaZulu-Natal to personally hand over the paintings of the King to the grieving royal family.
"Travelled all the way from Joburg to Nongoma KZN to pay my last respects to the King #RIPKingZwelithini," he captioned the snaps of himself holding the paintings.

Briefly.co.za previously reported that ever since the news of King Goodwill Zwelithini's passing was shared, he has been trending on South African Twitter. And now controversial local artist, Rasta, has been trending as well on the popular app.
Rasta, who has become famous for honouring deceased legends with paintings, has been trending as locals begged him not to attempt a painting of King Goodwill out of fears that he may fail to properly capture the King's features.
"If there ever was a time to arrest Rasta or take his paint brush & canvas it would be now before he even thinks of doing a tribute to King Goodwill Zwelithini," wrote one Twitter user, @MatriarchMellow.
