Rasta recycles Karabo Mokoena’s portrait and says its Boity’s



The artist clearly did not anticipate the attention the rapper would get today and as a result, could not start drawing from scratch.

Lebani “Rasta” Sirenje shared his latest (sort of) work of art and his lucky subject this time was Boity. Rasta may have decided to jump in on the Twitter trend after Boity was the talk of the streets.

The Twitter streets sent Boity straight to the trending list after she criticised DJ Cleo for the caption he wrote under pictures of him and convicted rapist Brickz in prison.

Most criticised her for apparently failing to move on from Brickz’s “mistakes”. She was slammed for apparently thinking she was God and only she had the power to forgive and condemn.

However, Rasta decided to show love to the rapper, only that his followers said he got it wrong again. His “latest” work of art also left his followers confused because he used Karabo Mokoena’s picture as a reference, which left social media users wondering if he was admitting to getting Mokoena’s portrait wrong in the first place.

While some of his followers said he may have been thinking about actor Leleti Khumalo or Zandile Msutwana (Vuyiswa on The Queen). The portrait’s eyebrows were also subjected to scrutiny.

These were some of the comments on social media:
