Social media has become so corrupted and utilized for childish and nonsensical things that we sometimes forget the incredible power it has to do good.

Today, the power of Twitter has changed the life of a Nigerian pencil artist forever, after his drawing of Kevin Hart was seen by the American comedian, who has now promised to buy it.

Not only has Hart promised to buy the drawing of himself, he has also commissioned the artist to draw three more portraits of his celebrity friends, all of which he would buy for some good money.

The artist is known as Eli Waduba Yusuf, from Kaduna in Nigeria. He drew this amazing portrait of Kevin Hart, posted it on twitter and asked for his friends to retweet it until it reached Mr Hart.

The American comedian got so many mentions about the picture that he finally replied, promising to buy it and to give Yusuf more jobs for cash.

So through the power of social media, one artist’s life has been irrevocably changed. Congrats to him.
