- Rasta recently shared some snaps of a completed Queen Mantfombi painting which he did in her honour
- Many people thought that the painting was a lot better than most of his other work
- Others however still criticised Rasta and questioned why he's so famous in South Africa in the first place
Rasta the Artist has finally shared snaps of the painting he made for Queen Mantfombi, who passed away last week. In a snap shared online, the controversial artist can be seen adding finishing touches to the painting, which stands beside the one he did for King Goodwill Zwelithini.
"Rasta the Artist putting his final touches to his portrait of Zulu Regent #QueenMantfombiDlaminiZulu. #RIPQueenMantfombi," KZNgov captioned the snap.
Locals could not help but rush to the comment section where they either complimented Rasta or criticised him. Read a few of their most interesting comments below:
"There are so many talented artists in SA actually in KZN. I just don't understand why his specific work gets publicised so much."
"Rasta is outsourcing services now akusona isandla sa Rasta lesi."
"Wamuhle umsebenzi wakho Rasta, siyabonga."
"The way Rasta respects us Zulu people."
"Rasta is a good artist, I don't know what happens sometimes."
"So Rasta has his favs..."
"I'm convinced... Rasta fears amaZulu."
Briefly News earlier reported that believe it or not, 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 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 South African critics to start sharing their harsh and sometimes hilarious thoughts on the portrait.
