As fans still try to come to terms with Rasta's painting of Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the Global Citizen Festival over the weekend, another of his murals has surfaced online, causing more chaos.

A picture of Rasta standing with a drawing he did to commemorate the 1976 Soweto Uprising has been shared widely on Twitter and other social media platforms. 

The drawing, which is an attempted replica of Sam Nzima's iconic photograph, shows a skinnier looking man holding Hector Pieterson.

Fans didn't hold back in their criticism of the drawing, with even Fikile Mbalula and comedian Skhumba joining in the banter.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE just last month, Rasta hit back at the "bad reviews" on social media. He said in reality, he got a lot more praise and pointers on how to improve than just hate.

"People can't just wake up and say I must stop painting, that would kill me... Rather they say go change this or learn this and I'll improve."
