Rasta The Artist reveals portrait of Minnie Dlamini at roast

Rasta The Artist – real name Lebani Sirejenje attended Minnie Dlamini’s live roast at Sandton Convention Centre and presented her with a portrait as seen in a clip shared on social media on 6 April.

Best known for painting the faces of celebrities and prominent individuals who have passed on, Rasta The Artist had everyone surprised when he gifted media personality Minnie Dlamini with a portrait of herself.

Rasta The Artist not only had social media users flabbergasted but Dlamini and some of her panel as well.

“To my friends and family that showed up for me words fail me, thank you for being in my corner. I love you all soooo much. To my glam team thank you for always making me look and feel beautiful.

“Does this mean her career is dead because Rasta only paints dead people? RIP to Minnie’s career,” @somethingFRESCA asked.

“I’m beginning to believe Rasta is an art comedian, ngeke [no ways]! This was meant to make us laugh,” @buhlebamashasha commented.

“Naaaa Rusta must be in on it. It must be a roast on top of a roast. The man can’t seriously as an adult think this is artwork😂😂😂🤣🤣,” @DumboXrp said.

“What if Rasta is a talented genius who unfortunately has poor eyesight?” @2nd_of_HerName asked.

“Rasta knows why he’s not accurate with his art that’s his motive to get people talking,” @ManziniSimand replied.
