Who Tula don epp? (2)
Soon as Panbi posted the picture, the comments started rolling in.
Initially there were
some encouraging ones like…
“Nice try bro”
“Work harder, the sky is the limit”
Panbi felt proud of himself like…
And then in a split second, the comments changed like Nigeria’s government.
“Nah bro, this isn’t 9ice, t
his is wickedness 😭”
“Baba, go into comedy, you’re obviously better at making jokes than art”
“This must be 9ice’s brother Nasir”
“Adigun alapomeji ko, ogogo eleponmeta ni 😂😂”
Just imagine like 100 of such comments.
Panbi was weak. He couldn’t move but he was moved to tears.
He nearly have up completely on drawing and life.
But then he remembered Tula’s offer and decided to go back to him like the prodigal son.
“Baba Tula, how far? Abeg don’t be angry, na die I dey”
“I’m ready to join your drawing tutorial gang”
And Tula was just looking at him like…
“Panbi the boy!
Mr I can’t TRAIN because OKADA is faster
You want to be an artist but you can’t persist
Looking for easy way out like treasure!
Now you’re back like politician coming for 2nd term
Panbi was just there humble like…
“Oga Tula, no vex. I’m ready for the drawing tutorial now.”
“No problem”, Tula said, “Everybody makes mistakes.”
“And it’s not just a drawing tutorial. It’s called The Hive™. Welcome to PnB, Panbi”.
So Panbi became a member of The Hive and started attending classes regularly.
After his first 3 weeks, he came up with this decent sketch…
By 6 weeks, he could do this…
Even Tula saw one of his drawings one day and was like, ‘This boy, na we dey train you abi na you dey train us?”
One day, just close to the end of his training, Tula called Panbi aside and told him,
“Panbi, it’s no longer news that here at the hive you’re one of our most impressive students.
You’re bright, attentive and very prudent.
And so because of that, I’ve enrolled you in an art competition cos I believe you can win it,
the winner gets a grand prize of N10 million, so think well before you say anything”
Panbi couldn’t believe his ears, he was like…
“Yes, you Panbi. You!”
