Lebani Sirenje, commonly known as Rasta, gained popularity in these streets by mostly painting portraits of newly deceased celebrities.

But his skills as a fine artist have always been questioned, as his final products leave a little to be desired.

Once again, Rasta is one of the trending topics on Twitter today. Relax, no one has died. Instead he is also riding the wave of the hype around SA’s national rugby team – the Springboks.

South Africa is currently in a celebratory mood, this is due to the incredible world cup win by our rugby team.

By virtue of being the first black captain to lead the team to world cup status, Siya Kolisi is undoubtedly one of the most lauded players in the team.
Yesterday, many South Africans gathered at the OR Tambo International Airport to give a hero’s welcome to the Bokke (as they’re affectionately known).

Rasta was amongst the people who wanted to just show love to our rugby team. He did what he did and this time around, many noted that his drawing skills have definitely improved.

Tweeps had only positive things to say about Rasta’s piece of work.
