Empire Mates Entertainment (EME) artiste, Banky W, has bought a painting of himself. The painting which is a perfect image of the American born Nigerian R&B singer-cum film-maker was made by a young man simply called Tobi.
There are many artists on the streets of Lagos and they are generally very good. However, Tobi is one of the exceptional ones. He got a hype from the award winning boss.
“Just bought this portrait from a fantastic street artist called Tobi. He wasn’t sure that he’d ever get to meet me but he did an amazing job anyway. To anyone out there who feels like their work is going unnoticed.. do it anyway; God sees your effort and He will eventually reward you. Your time will come. And if you need a portrait done, please call Tobi @ 08028800122. I hope this will be the start of big things for him. Bigups to @thehumansoflagos for bringing him to my attention.”
