Earlier, Briefly News reported that Mzansi's much loved to be hated celebrity portraitist Lebani Sirenje aka Rasta The Artist's exploits on a Chicken Licken 'SoulBite Snack' advert set tongues wagging far and wide in recent times.

Riding on the overwhelming reception to the TV commercial, his second after first appearing in Ballantine's Scotch Whisky's global campaign titled Stay True: There's No Wrong Way in April last year, the controversial painter is intent on forging an unprecedented path on the small screen.

South Africans will fondly recall the alcohol brand's television advert in which Rasta made a cameo appearance alongside popular House music DJ and producer Shimza, among others.
