- Rasta the Artist has once again honoured another local star with one of his famous paintings
- This time the recipient of his not-so-welcome artwork was local DJ, DJ Shimza, and no one knows yet how he feels about the tribute
- South Africans could not believe Rasta's work and swiftly chastised him in the comment section
Believe it or not but Rasta the Artist has once again managed to get South Africans shaking with laughter and disbelief after sharing yet another one of his infamous paint jobs on his increasingly busy Twitter page.
This time the person who got the Rasta treatment was popular South African DJ, DJ Shimza - and one look at the painting shows that the person portrait looks far from the real and quite handsome DJ Shimza.
"Real Art Sculptured To Amaze," Rasta quite confidently captioned the upload on the app.
It did not take long for Rasta's many online critics to start sharing their harsh and sometimes hilarious thoughts on the portrait. Read a few of their comments below:
"Aaah wena Rasta."
"Who is this supposed to be before I jump into conclusions? I hope it's not gonna be Shimza."
"This is "voetsek" in a form of a drawing, such insult."
"I guess less artists or prominent people are not dying for Rasta to paint [sic]."
"So this is Shimza. Hai bab'Rasta mara why why?"
"Rasta can you please draw me, I want to save this picture for the future generation."
"Keep painting my brother, let the haters hate."
Briefly News previously reported that South Africa's former president, Jacob Zuma, celebrated his 69th birthday on Monday this week. To honour the ex-president on his special day, Mzansi artist Rasta painted a portrait of him wearing his seemingly favourite black and gold shirt.
Heading online, the artist shared two snaps; in the first, he sits without his sunglasses in front of the portrait of Zuma, who looks surprisingly like Zuma. In the second snap, he decided to wear his shades for the moment.
"Langelihle Nxamalala...Gedleyihlekisa Zuma. Happy birthday," he warmly captioned the post.
