Gone are the days when Mzansi had to wait for a celebrity funeral to see art by Lebani Sirenje, better known as Rasta. These days, Rasta randomly gifts the nation with a new portrait to talk about.

His latest muse is none other than former minister Malusi Gigaba.

A tweet surfaced recently from the account @Lebani_Sirenje showing the artist sketching a drawing of Gigaba based on his photo. Mzansi isn't ready for the final product yet.

However, tweeps could only imagine what was going through the mind of Gigaba's wife Norma when she was alerted to the fact that her hubby was Rasta's next target - uh, we mean muse.

Norma took to Instagram to ask that Rasta's pencil be taken away before he does irreversible damage. "Can someone please take that pencil away before uRasta amoshe kakhulu. I know he will do 2-in-1 of Malusi and Musa Mthombeni," she wrote, with tears-of-laughter emojis attached.

Norma wasn't the only one who was terrified at the thought of the final product. Tweeps were already engaging in mental-readiness exercises.
