Adisa had decided to take pictures of the man and afterwards, he edited the pictures and put them up for sale on an NFT platform known as OpenSea. The picture, which was titled The Drummer’s Joy, was sold for 1.1 ETH. Adisa returned to visit Baba Onilu with 50% of the money gotten from the sale of his picture and made a now-viral video capturing Baba Onilu’s boundless joy and excitement.

Adisa’s kind-heartedness has earned him more recognition than before as his following on Twitter has increased tremendously after the video went viral. Nigerians are getting interested in the idea of minting pictures as NFT, and are connecting with him for more information on how to do so.
