Talented makeup artist, Jane Richards, who has gained a reputation for transforming herself into popular figures, has dropped an Independence Day special for her fans in the online community.
To celebrate Nigeria at 60, the self-taught makeup artist transformed her face into that of former Nigerian president, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Like her previous projects, the young lady posted pictures of the processes that led to her finished work of art.
Jane rocked the signature cap and eyeglasses synonymous to the elder statesman.
However, that was not all. The young lady also penned a tribute to the ex-president and recounted how life seemed so much easier when he was still at the helms of power. The tribute reads:
“There was a Nigeria!! Though I was born in the late 90’s but the very first president I remembered while growing up was Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, I remember those days when N10 was just enough for me to get snacks before going to school and I would not complain of hunger.
A bottle of coke used to be N25, ahh, the days of 4 for N5 bubble gum (those hard gums that would give you headaches, pardon me for talking about food only, that’s basically all I knew then.”
