Kenyan pencil artist Collins Omondi Okello can’t hide his joy after American comedian and businessman Stephen Harvey recognized his work as per his wish.
Collins had asked Kenyans to tag Harvey so that he can see the portrait he had drawn of him.
“Everyone has a God given gift. This is what following your gift looks like, just incredible” Steve Harvey wrote.
“Pencil drawing in progress of @IAMSteveHarvey by me, with love from Kenya. Help me tag him so he can see it” Collins Omondi wrote on his twitter handle.
Kenyans would later show their support for the talented artist with some retweeting his post and some asking for his services.
Larry Asego and Alex Mwakideu were among those who showed their support for the young talent.
‘I don’t know the guy personally so could you do some work for me? That’s the best I can do, apart from a retweet.’ Larry Asego wrote.
Alex would later promise to reach out to him
‘@IAMSteveHarvey come right here! You won’t believe this my brother! I know we always talk on phone about doing a show focusing on the talent Africans have… Let’s start with this young man called @collimondi.” Alex Mwakideu tweeted.
In the shortest time possible the American comedian come motivational speaker who runs a reality TV show responded and appreciated the art work.
