Nigerian pencil artist Eli Waduba Yusuf has caught the attention of Hollywood comedian Kevin Hart, and the Jumanji actor has commissioned three art pieces from the artist.
Sharing a photo of his hyperrealistic drawing of Kevin on Twitter, Eli wrote: “Please Retweet, let @KevinHart4real see it, thank you.”
With the power of social media, the impressive portrait garnered over 67 00 retweets and eventually appeared on Kevin’s radar.
On Wednesday the American celebrity replied to Eli on Twitter, writing: “I see it and I want to purchase it…I also want to support you and your amazing talent by giving you a fee to do a pencil drawing of 3 of my celebrity friends that I can gift it to them.”
We wonder who the celebrity friends are, and hopefully we get to find out soon.
Sometimes dreams really do come true!
