Nigerians on twitter have reacted with funny comments after DJ Khaled simply commented with “Amazing” on a Nigerian artist’s drawing of his son Asahd.
If you recall, American comedian Kevin Hart had reacted to a hyper-realistic drawing of himself by another Nigerian artist back in February and reached out to buy the art.
Some other artists followed suit to reach out to celebrities both home and abroad with their works. Some successfully received the attention they desired while some were lucky enough to get their art purchased.
In this case, a retweet with the comment “Amazing” was what Sammie Israel, the artist who drew Khaled’s son Asahd recieved, courtesy of a repost by one of his fans.

This is all you can say?
But you can tell a girl in a video
That she's smart, she's loyal, that you appreciate that while dropping 10 bands after each praise.
Even dropping 10 bands for her to spend for no reason.
O di mma?

Some came to Khaled’s defence, stating that it was good enough that he saw and commented on the art. After all, that’s what the artist asked for.
Nigerians show some respect for the boss, his tweet is a dream come through for any art, so many of can't afford to pay him to tweet an ad normally, just appreciate the boss, so many Nigerians don't appreciate us this much Genevieve didn't retweet my fan art no p

DJ khaled is not mandated to give the guy anything
Quoting this tweet gives the young dude global awareness because a whole lot of rich folks are definitely following DJ khaled
But self entitlement has made a lot myopic
Bcos Kevin did sth now means everyone else must do same?

Yal so used to drawing famous people and trying to force them to buy or endorse you. Him appreciating your efforts is enough

Oh well, at least, we can say the artist got the recognition he desired.
