A Nigerian artist, Isaac Oyedele has finally gotten the attention of the President of the United States, Donald Trump.
The hyperrealistic artist had on Sunday shared a photo of an incredible portrait of Trump he made with only a ballpoint.
Sharing the amazing piece of art on Twitter and requesting users on the micro-blogging site to retweet until it gets to Trump, Oyedele revealed that it was his second portrait of the US President.
The portrait according to the artist took up to 70hours to be completed.
“This is my second portrait of President Trump. This time I really want him to see it. All done in ballpoint, took up to 70hours, ’24×21′ inches.
Please RT till the president sees this🙏🏽

However, Oyedele’s dream without hesitation became a reality yesterday, Monday 2nd, 2019 around 6pm when Trump saw and retweeted Oyedele’s tweet which has now gone viral.
Acknowledging the portrait to be fantastic, the US President commended the talented Nigerian on his artistic prowess and even advised him never to give up his dream.
“Not only did I see it @Doks_Art, I think it is fantastic. You are a wonderful artist, never give up your dream!,” Trump said in response to Oyedele’s original tweet.
