Oh Rasta, what have you done?

The painter that we all know and love (and that we all love to critique) is back again as Lebani Sirenje AKA Rasta has found a way to somehow overshadow Zozibini Tunzi's big day on social media.

Zozi is landing in Mzansi any moment for what will be her first visit back home since she won the Miss Universe title. All of her biggest fans, as well as members of the media, representatives from government and Miss South Africa have all made their way to OR Tambo international to welcome her. Oh, and so has Rasta.

The infamous painter refuses to let a big occasion pass him by and on the morning of Zozibini's return, the father of two made his way to the airport and immediately started working on a tribute to Miss Universe in the form of one of his signature paintings.

Usually a "signature painting" from one of Mzansi's most famous artists would be something to marvel at. Unfortunately, when we're talking about Rasta's trademark portraits, it's never anything good. Rasta has gained a bad reputation for failing to accurately depict his subjects and his attempt at painting Zozibini appears to have gone down the same messy road.

Fans demanded that Rasta's paint brushes be taken away from him after laying eyes on his latest attempt:

Needless to say that even before he completed his tribute it was clear that he was not quite getting it right. Tweeps on social media are not impressed by the painter's latest work with many of them expressing embarrassment at Rasta's latest attempt:

Rasta had begun 2020 on a strong note after his painting of Richard Maponya was lauded for its (uncharacteristic...) accuracy! It looked as if the painter had finally turned a corner but this Zozibini Tunzi painting feels like a return to the form that made him famous for all the wrong reasons. 

Do you think that Rasta needs a bit of guidance in his work?
