Lebani Sirenje know as Rasta the artist, as much as the country loves to hate Rasta. We should respect his stylistic choices in his work even is we think they are questionable. Rasta has become the hottest celeb portraitists over the few past years we have seen some of his celebrity portraits (shimza DJ, late king Zwelithini, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle,Jay-Z and Beyonce) and many more.
Even though he is no highbrow art school graduate with awards and R1m artworks,his portraits are always and are well recognised and often a topic of conversation. If you know Rasta you definitely know the criticism that follows him and his portraits portfolio. People often take issue and are even outraged by his depictions of South Africans most famous faces. Often taking to Twitter with his artwork, Rasta replies and mentions are full of his critics ready to dish a hot take on his supposed flops and fails. This time he portraits FW De Klerk and Twitter was on him again
