Exactly one year today, February 27, the life of Kaduna State, Nigeria hyperrealism pencil artist, Eli Waduba Yusuf was changed for better after he got the attention of American comedian, Kevin Hart through his pencil drawing.
The young man drew a portrait of Kevin Hart, posted it on his micro-blogging platform and asked his friends to help tag and mention Kevin Hart so he can see it.
Fortunately, the comedian saw it and applauded Waduba’s excellent drawing with the promise that he’ll purchase it and still pay him to draw for three of his celebrity friends. (The rest is history).
However, Eli took to his social media page today to share a throwback and celebrate one year of breakthrough.
“It’s exactly a year today. The event that changed my life. Thank you Jesus”
