A highly skilled artist based in Ibadan, known as Bamishaye Sunday David, recently showcased his remarkable talent by creating a heartwarming moment for a fatigued female officer. The officer, stationed at Dogo Apata in Ibadan, Oyo state, appeared stressed as she engaged in conversation with a trader. Unbeknownst to her, David seized the opportunity to capture her essence on paper, crafting a beautiful portrait without her knowledge.
When David completed the artwork and unveiled it to the officer, her initial fatigue transformed into a wide smile of recognition. In an interview with LegitNG, the artist, whose passion goes beyond monetary gain, expressed that he never charges for his creations. He emphasized that bringing joy to people's faces is a reward in itself and believes in the natural order of Mother Nature's way of reciprocating kindness. He stated, "I’ve never felt bad, not for once, for not being paid. Everything isn’t about money! Making people happy is a blessing, and I believe Mother Nature has its way of rewarding people. Sometimes people call me from abroad to appreciate my work, and some send money as a gift.”
