Nigerian creative artist and talking drummer, David Jagu, finally got one of his bucket lists answered when he got the attention of award-winning Canadian rapper, Drake.
Jagu via his Instagram page,@davidjagun had relentlessly begged and tagged Drake by performing some of his hit songs using the talking drum in hopes that he would get Drake’s attention.
In his last post, David wrote: “I Pray You Answer My Prayers One Day Sir 🇨🇦🇨🇦 @ovoroxx @champagnepapi.”

WuzupNaija notes that David is not the first Nigerian who tried to gain international stars attention via their social media platforms.
One Eli Yusuf Sarki also known as Eli Waduba, who uses the Twitter account, @EWaduba got the job of a lifetime when he posted his completed portrait of American comedian, Kevin Hart on Twitter with the caption, “My name is Eli Waduba Yusuf Am a Nigerian, based in kaduna. Am a hyperrealism PENCIL Artist, I hope to become like @Harinzeyart. Please Retweet, let @KevinHart4real see it, thank you.”
WuzupNaija also recalls that Adetetu OJ Alabi, a Nigerian model, and advocate for beauty tribal marks also gained popularity when she caught the attention of Holywood star and singer, Rihanna, after she started a campaign called #tribalmarkschallenge, to encourage Africans with tribal marks and also advocate for the ban of facial scarring.
