We are all drummers in my family
Ayangbenle said that he inherited drumming skills from his father as he never learnt it. He added that his mother’s lineage is also one of drummers.
He said that though he started drumming in Ibadan, he travelled to Abeokuta to work more with his skill. The indigene of Ede in Osun state said he has drummed in other places like Lagos and Ilorin.
Something big happened
Ayagbenle never believed something big could come out of his photos. Adisa who said that he has been taking photos with his phone for years revealed he started selling NFTs in January.

In the emotional clip, the man was amazed when he gave him bunches of naira notes. He even took the man to a phone shop to get him a smartphone.
As a smart art creator, Adisa minted the whole video of their meeting as an NFT and sold it for 1.1 Ethereum (Eth). The photographer revealed that the sale was a big win.
