South Africans have a love-hate-relationship with artist Lebani Sirenje – who is known as Rasta. The artist often gets roasted over his portraits but he does manage to get it right every now and then.
On Sunday, Rasta showed off the portrait he painted of Prophet Mboro and his accuracy impressed and surprised South Africans.
The infamous artist, who normally paints people after they passed away, simply captioned the post:
“Let’s take it to church @ProphetMboro.”
Take a look at the tweet below:
The post sparked quite the reactions and although Saffas were impressed by his Mboro artwork, they reacted with hilarious comments.
Twitter user, @UmalambaneZN, wrote:
“You draw those still alive well because you know they will beat you and you draw the dead funny because they can’t defend themselves. We see you.”
Another social media user, @Tazzman77990840, added:
“Why do you always get it right on people who don’t matter?”
Tweep, @Cellular_ZA, commented:
“Are you taking extra lessons Rasta… Phela you’ve done it much better.”
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported Mboro and Prophet Shepherd Bushiri are entangled in a legal battle.
This follows comments made by Mboro around Bushiri’s alleged involvement in forex commodity scams. In an attempt to prove his innocence and clear his name, Bushiri instructed his lawyers to issue a summons calling on Mboro to face him in the Pretoria court.
Bushiri blames all the negative publicity for other spiritual leader’s jealousy and spiteful actions, hinting that Mboro was jealous of his following, success and wealth.
During their court appearance last week Bushiri’s lawyer C.Mpofu accused Mboro and the scorned congregants of stripping him of his right to dignity.
However, Major 1 lost the first round of the battle. Pretoria High Court Judge David Makhoba dismissed Bushiri’s case against Mboro. According to the judge, the case lacks urgency and therefore made the decision not to make any ruling in favour of any of the parties.
