    I need his sculpts in my life. Where can I get them from and this is so inspirational. Shows how much Nigerians neglect artworks.

    Am proud of myself!!! i own one of his sculptures. This guy sold it to me on eleguishi! i am a proud supporterof Nigeria art.loool. His work is beautiful, timeless and detailed. Someone please give him a chance! Maybe to further his education or something. I dont like how hidden this post is. For someone with so much potential artistically. I will try to look for him when i am in Nigeria
