“I don't want to disclose the name of the celebrity. When I drew the person, she just reacted negatively on the post and she blocked me immediately.”
When asked if he was also skilled in professional drawings and not just funny ones, Boda Taye Oniyakuya replied in the negative. According to him, he wanted to be different.
In his words:
“I just feel that we all cannot be doing the same thing so I just had to change the content because most people do normal portrait drawings, the beautiful ones. I just thought to do my own the other way round to make it fun so people can see it and laugh”.
Oniyakuya also added that he had not been seeing his type of content so he tried to do better.
