Scott Morrison joked that he now has more time to practice the ukulele after losing power.
The former prime minister was famously ridiculed for his portrayal of Dragon hit April Sun In Cuba while being interviewed by Nine’s Karl Stefanovic in February.
On Friday afternoon, the father of two posted a picture of his instrument next to two songbooks with the caption ‘Now I can practice some more in Karlos’.

The Facebook post sparked an outpouring of support from his loyal fans. Some said they wanted to put him back in charge, while others thanked him for his services.
‘Need you back… the worst Labor Party Australia has had. We’re going to be in big trouble with this party,” one commenter wrote.
“We need you and miss you Scott, there will never be anyone as good as you,” said another.
A third commenter added: ‘You enjoy your ukulele and have fun. We miss your strong leadership and team.”
Morrison resigned as Liberal leader when he lost the May 21 election to Anthony Albanese.
He still represents Cook as a backbench MP but is expected to step down soon, leading to by-election.

In an interview with Daily Mail Australia during the election campaign, Mr Morrison said his best performances have been ‘watching Australia get through the pandemic’, doubling its funding for mental health care and countering China by forging alliances within ASEAN, the Quad and AUKUS.
Mr Morrison’s post came after Jacinda Ardern announced a ‘reset’ in Australia-New Zealand relations during a visit to Mr Albanese in Sydney.
Mr Albanese said he will consider her longstanding request to stop deporting criminals with Kiwi passports, if they have lived in Australia for a long time.
The new prime minister said during a joint press conference that he sympathized with the view of his ‘friend’ Jacinda Ardern on the controversial immigration policy.

Labor colleague Ms Ardern, who clashed with Mr Morrison over the matter, said: ‘I see this as an opportunity for a reset.’
On her last trip to Australia in 2020, Ms Ardern told Morrison: ‘Don’t deport your people and your problems’.
Under Australian policy, non-citizens who commit serious crimes are deported even if they have spent most of their lives in Australia.
It has resulted in hundreds of criminals being shipped to New Zealand even though they have no ties to the country other than their Kiwi passports.
About 2,000 New Zealanders were deported between 2014 and 2020. Most have lived in Australia since childhood.
Ms Ardern has previously said the policy is “without doubt” increasing gang violence in New Zealand.
