Johannesburg - Lebane Sirenje, popularly known as Rasta for his “not-so accurate” artwork, seems to have done it again –  only this time with portraits of music moguls Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

Rasta who became renowned for his paintings mostly done at celebrity funerals and one of his most recent works which was of late motswako rapper HHP, seems to have struck yet another nerve for Twitter users.
