Artist Rasta has come under fire once again on social media, this time for a painting of broadcasting legend Bob Mabena.
Mabena was laid to rest on Saturday after passing away due to cardiac arrest. A video on social media shows the artist outside Mabena’s home on Saturday, to pay tribute to the radio icon.
WATCH: Rasta says uncle Bob introduced hip hop to SA.

But do we really consider Rasta an artist or a comedian?
