Tweeps unsure of Rasta’s new portrait

A day following the passing of gospel superstar Deborah Fraser was laid to rest in a star-studded funeral celebration, infamous artist Rasta presented his portrait to the public.

Rasta – real name Lebani Sirenje – made the reveal on Sunday, May 22 on his social media account. But tweeps weren’t entirely convinced if Rasta got the correct memo of whom to paint.

In a post shared on Twitter, Rasta revealed two portraits he had created of Deborah Fraser.

The iconic singer passed away on May 15 in Soweto’s Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital following a short illness. On Saturday, the singer was laid to rest in a ceremony at The Station Hall in Durban.

“RIP Deborah Fraser, your healing voice will always be missed”, wrote Rasta, tweeting the two paintings.

But whilst one depicted the star singing into a microphone, the other, claim tweeps, strongly resembled another woman of God: Mother Theresa.

@Xola_Mashasha: “I know Mother Theresa when I see one”

@ItisSamhere: “But he drew a nun!”

@reuben_gallas: “Isn’t this mother Theresa?”
