Na so maturity police.

Its a free world, he can either like the portrait or not. And he didn't. The artwork is amazing but there are issues with it however slight. He didn't say the artwork was bad or the artist can't draw. I mean its obvious the artist is talented. But he failed to accurately capture the essence of Alabi. Hence why he didn't like it.

This guy is not the 1st artist to have heard those words. And he won't be the last. It would be interesting to you to know that the great artists of old like Da vinci and co had similar experiences like this. What did they do? They went back studied the criticism they got and became better.

Criticism should be welcomed as an artist, that's the only way to notice your flaws and become better. If Alabi had just said thank you, that would have given the artist a false sense of validation. Which will make him repeat same mistakes in his next artwork. Trust me that is more harmful than what has been done here.

It took a lot of courage and maturity on the part of Alabi to say, I don't like. Against the norm that would have clearly been of no help to the artist.


I am not against critism. In art work, it is allowed and it helps the artists in their work. But in a case like this, Akin Alabi being a well known person should have appreciated the kind gesture and then find a better way to criticise.
He could have said thank you for this but this picture doesn' t look like me. Then from there he can continue to advise the artist if he himself his an artist.

In Nigeria, you can't achieve your potentials. Because Nigeria is a dream killer.

Show me Nigeria, and I will tell you about its leadership.

I want to redirect you to the caption on the picture. Its clearly says share if you like it. Forget about the well known person stuff. He responded appropriately to that caption, I don't like it. That is all. Thank you wasn't necessary there because the artist clearly wasn't searching for a thank you but for a share if you like it. Hence Alabi's response.

Just because he is a well known person he should now limit how he responds to everything by saying thank you 1st before saying what he really thinks, that's not right na.

This is the second time Akin Alabi will be coming out blunt on Twitter to make known his displeasure over art work dedicated to him. He should at least say thank you to encourage the artist and he moves on. He was once hustling in the street. He sold chicken during Christmas season at Iwo road in Ibadan years ago. He should learn not to shoot people down who are still trying to rise

It's not his job to encourage any artist. You can't draw rubbish and expect me to like it. Moreover, most of these drawings are invasion of privacy and an attempt to chase clout or gain monetary compensation.

How is this different from those who clean your windshield in the middle of traffic without asking them?

Our problem in this country na ourselves grin grin grin

The fact the he was very honest with his reply is okay by me. Criticizism is part of live. Always accept it. Even a perfect work may have flaws.
