UNILAG student paints a portrait of Patoranking in 4 minutes


The MTV #ShugaTour finale which held last Saturday at the indoor Sports hall of the University of Lagos, was many things to different people.  For some it was a time to dance and be merry. For others, it was an opportunity to meet with their favourite music stars; Patoranking, Ice Prince and Reminisce but for fast rising artist, Fola David, it was a chance to exhibit his outstanding talent to the world.

The 500 level student of Medicine and Surgery in the University of Lagos shocked many when in less than five minutes, he painted a portrait of popular reggae-dancehall singer, Patoranking with the aid of his brush and paint.

Perhaps what was even more shocking was that he made the painting upside down, a style believed to be one of the most technical approaches to painting.

Further findings reveal that this is not the first of David’s paintings. He has in recent times painted celebrities including Kunle Afolayan, Emma Nyra, Funke Akindele and many others.
