Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a talented Nigerian visual artist, Ayogu Kingsley, amazed social media as he shared how his skill developed in five years.

In a Twitter post on Sunday, January 31, the young man shared two photos that showed how far he has come.

In the first frame at the age of 17, the man could be seen working on some painting on a wall. The second picture has him painting a hyper-realistic photo of a lady with water cascading down her face.

Ayogu said he is 23 in the second frame, meaning it took him five years before he could make a painting that looks almost real.
