A young Nigerian lady identified as Chiamaka Iwenofu, a fine artist who has made portraits of many Nigerian celebrities, has taken to her Instagram page, @glamour_artz, to call out the celebrities for ignoring her after seeing the portraits she made for them.
Sharing some her drawings, she wrote;
Nigerian celebrities are getting me angry. After doing portraits for them they will see it and ignore me.
They don’t want to support me on my work. Am just feeling so exhausted.
I pray God blesses me with a good sponsor/supporter.
Speaking with a Correctng.com correspondent, Chiamaka revealed that she makes the portraits and send to the celebrities, however they just see them and ignore her. She went further to talk about her talent;
My name is Artist Chiamaka Mirabel Iwenofu, a 23years old girl from Anambra State, Nigeria. I am a fine artist. I do drawings, paintings, mixed media paintings for house decorations, etc. Anything about arts that’s where you find me.
I make portraits as fast as 2hours for one. I finish 4works in a day and I can do more than that if I have the work.
I don’t know how I’m doing it but I will just say that’s the talent that God gave to me. That’s what I do to make a living so I don’t joke with it.
