Following the story of a Nigerian artist, Eli Waduba who gained recognition from popular American comedian/actor Kevin Hart after he did a portrait of him, others are encouraged to show off their works for their favourite celebrities too.
In that vein, an artist who did a portrait of Nigerian singer, YCEE, shared his own drawing with the caption: “A pencil sketch of @iam_YCEE ..pls help me retweet until he sees it. “
Twitter users tagged YCee to the tweet to get him to buy it the way Kevin Hart did. But, Y Cee wasn’t interested in being forced to buy something he didn’t want to
He replied: “I’m not KELVIN HART.”
Fans, went on to bash YCee, for his choice of words but, the artist tweeted, asking people to stop calling out Y Cee.
He wrote: “@iam_YCEE is not the richest musician there is nor is he the poorest. I chose to sketch him because I’m his biggest fan. For the fact that he retweeted it is a win for me… Pls stop with all the belittling! Thanks.”
