Meanwhile, Bioreports earlier reported that a Nigerian boy who painted Kevin Hart was recognized for his talents by the American actor.
Given the fact that he was totally impressed by Eli’s hyper-realistic painting of him, Kevin took to his Twitter page to gush over the portrait in several tweets.
In a tweet to the young artist from Kaduna, Kevin promised to pay for the portrait once it was delivered to him. Then he also said he would contract the boy with a job to draw three other celebrities which he would be paid for!
