A young boy has become the centre of social media attention after someone shared the painting he made for singer and songwriter Simi.
Sharing the work on Twitter, @Nadiya100 made two frames depicting how the painting had started and how it eventually ended.
The Indian-themed artwork of Duduke crooner is courtesy of a 16-year-old Nigerian lad named Samuel.
@Nadiya100 tweet read in part:
"If @SympLySimi was from Indian
"Please let’s appreciate this awesome act from this 16years old Samuel."
Tweeps were overwhelmed with amazement as they praised the young gun.
The tweet which was made in the early hours of Wednesday, March 10 had some of the reactions below:
"That dude can't be 16y/o."
"Sweet. Kid's talented."
"nice art work ."
"But Simi is not from INDIAN."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young man had made an amazing pencil drawing of Davido.
The young artist said that he is a self-taught illustrator, adding that the art of the singer was his first for the year 2021.
Man gives life to non-living objects with amazing artworks, photos go viral, many say they look so real
@Zilaflexa asked people to retweet his work across their timelines so that it can come to the Holy Ground crooner's attention.
One of the amazing things he achieved with the drawing was Davido's dimples which he highlighted with a shadow.
