So Adorable & Talented! 9 Year Old Nigerian-German Girl Wins VR Bank Art Competition – PHOTOS



It’s always so great to hear about youth of African descent doing great things all around the world.

Meet 9-year-old Nigerian-German artist, Chioma Mayrschofer, who took part in VR-Bank’s art competition through her school. Not only did she win, she also got a chance to display her work at an art exhibition at one of Germany’s biggest banks. In addition, she won some prize money.

Diamond Celebrities reports that she didn’t think she would win the competition.

“When they mentioned the third and second winners and my name wasn’t  mentioned, I lost hope and was very disappointed knowing that I should at least gotten the second position… As they said the first position goes to, Icared less, but surprisingly it was me…when my name was mentioned I leaped up with joy… I am so happy and so grateful to God,” Chioma said.

Although the competition took place earlier this year, we just thought to share her work with you – we think its really uplifting and adorable 🙂

    Lovely..I hope more Nigerian parents allows their kids explore those hobbies. Which could turn into a huge career. And ego that they never dreamt of.

    just so loving you cutie. but how I wish other Nigerian children can be given such opportunity in Nigeria to discover themselves and showcase their talent to the world, not waiting until they go abroad and get discovered there and worse off their talent gets absorbed into those foreign societies….more grease to your elbow my dear.

    I lol’d when she said “I cared less”. Naija English must always be present, lmao! Congrats sweetie. She’s so cute. I’m so glad BN is highlighting people that are not musicians. It seems that’s the new part to success in Nigeria unfortunately and it’s all most companies invest in these days which is too bad.

    • mrs C nwayioma,lol.

    This is quite inspiring. its imperative we keep feeding our kids with the right information and likewise discover their innate abilities. if all these factors are in place, world domination will be their reward.
