Rasta receives backlash over Riky Rick painting

Rasta has, once again, found himself being dragged by black Twitter following his portrait of late South African rapper Riky Rick.

In honour of the fallen legend, Rasta completed three portraits and presented them at African Bank, Legends Barbershop and an unidentified location respectively.

However, his warm gesture was not well received by fans of the musician with some going as far as saying he should be “arrested”.

Rasta has made it a trend of his to paint famous people after they have passed on.

Riky was laid to rest on Tuesday morning at a private ceremony attended by close family, friends and select media.

A special tribute celebration for the rapper will be held this Friday, March 4.

Riky Rick passed away in the early hours of Wednesday morning, February 23, in his studio in Johannesburg .
