A young artist was gifted a sum of one million naira for painting a beautiful portrait of Kogi state governor’s wife.

The lovely portrait attracted the attention of people who brought it to her notice.

Grateful for the governor’s wife kind gesture, the artist thanked her on social media.

A young artist named Bright in Chukwudi recently got highly rewarded for painting a pretty portrait of the wife of Kogi state governor. The lady named Rashida Yahaya Bello stumbled on the artwork after it first drew the attention of many Nigerians.

Bright, who is adept at painting hyper-realistic portraits of people, got a sum of N1 million from the governor’s wife. While painting the picture of the lady, he shared a video on his Instagram page in which he showed the process of the project.

Later on, when he finished with the work, he shared another post showing the final look of the portrait and tagging the governor’s wife in the hope that she would see it and reward him for it.
