The impact of social media in our lives can never be underscored, whether for positive or negative reasons. Seen mostly as a destructive tool by some critics, social media’s power in enriching and connecting people cannot be de-emphasized. It’s simple! Social media is power……positive or negative – but that depends on the user.
Nigerian hyperrealism artist Eli Waduba Yusuf zoomed to Twitter to share his pencil drawing of U.S comedian Kevin Hart and asked followers to retweet his post so the comedian could see it.
Yusuf’s tweet caught Hart’s attention and Hart’s response was more than what Eli imagined.
Kevin didn’t only give his approval but offered to purchase the art and to show additional support, commissioned Yusuf to do three more drawings for him.
