Unlike many who blocked me after painting their portraits, wife of Gov Yahaya Bello supported me with NGN1m, says Nigerian artist

Kindly share this:

A Nigerian artist has received the sum of one million naira from the wife of the Kogi State governor, Rashida Yahaya Bello, after painting her portrait.

The artist disclosed this on his Instagram page. He first posted the video of him making the portrait of the first lady in July and then begged people to spread the painting until it got to the wife of the Governor.

In one of his posts, the artist said:

“Dear Lord help my destiny, let someone invest in me,like @femiotedola cause i want to blow..oti pe lati jss3.. I’ve been blessed with this gift..lord i want to blow like @symplysimi@iam_smalldoctor i hope u see me so give me one hit drawing make i blow like @official2baba.”

About one month after the painting, the wife of the Governor slid into the artist comment section to tell him that she was supporting him with NGN1m.

Apparently after getting the money, the artist took to his IG page again to let the people know that Her Excellency, Rashida Yahaya Bello, had generously supported him with NGN1m.

He wrote:

“Who remember when I posted this video of the First Lady @rashidayahayabello asking you to like and tag her until she sees it. 
“Well, I want to inform you all know that she reached out to me and supported me with sum of 1MILLION naira. Am still in shocked that we still have good people like this in this country. I have done a lot of work for celebrities , politicians even footballers but they all ignored me and sometimes blocked me Becos am a nobody but Her Excellency decided to bless me. Pls help me thank her for not ignoring me like others. @rashidayahayabello ma. thank you over again for appreciating my talent. God will continue to bless you.”
