Career Climb: Naija artist Eli Waduba Yusuf catches the eye of Kevin Hart on Twitter

Never underestimate the power of social media.

American comedian and actor, Kevin Hart has reached out to a young Nigerian artist who posted a drawing of him on Twitter.

The Kaduna-based artist, Eli Waduba Yusuf had posted the drawing three days ago, February 25, 2019, and asked users to retweet till it gets to Hart and it did. The tweet that caught the eye of the “Nightschool” actor had over 13,00 retweets. Yusuf wrote that he is a hyperrealism pencil artist and will like to become like Arinze Egbengwu who is best known for creating hyperrealistic pencil drawings.

Hart was so impressed by this drawing of him, he replied saying he has seen the work of art and he would like to purchase it as well as support him by paying him to do a pencil of three of his celebrity friends, therefore, the artist should direct message him immediately in order to make plans.

39-year-old Hart began his career by winning several amateur comedy competitions at clubs throughout New England, culminating in his first big break in 2001. Hart has since established his own production company dubbed Hart Productions and has starred in several films, most recently the January 2019 release, “The Upside. ”
