In his personal will to support the talent of a young virtual artist from his Constituency, Hon Babajimi Benson cheerfully persuaded top politicians who were present at the Eko Art Exhibition, held in Lagos, to patronize the Ikorodu born Artist.
The Federal Lawmaker who found himself in the position of a Sales Manager persuaded the likes of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Senator Olanrewaju Olamilekan to the stands of Andu Habeeb, who happens to be the youngest artist at the exhibition.
The Ikorodu Representative was reported to have inspired the dignitaries to purchase the artworks of Andu as he displayed them during the exhibition held as part of the Lagos@50 celebration and in honour of late Chief Rasheed Gbadamosi.
Mr Andu who could not but mention and appreciate the efforts of his representative took to his Facebook page to heap praises on him.
“Can someone join me in appreciating Hon. Babajimi Adegoke Benson for the full support and believe he had in me.
I was surprised to see Hon. Jimi Benson turn himself to my sales manager, by inviting Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, Alhaji Lai Muhammad, Senator Yayi and other guests to my stand at the Rasheed Gbadamosi Eko Art Expo in Eko Hotel to buy my Art works.
Hon Jimi Sir, I was marvelled by your presence at the Eko art Expo and I really appreciate your assistance and support for me as you uplifted and honoured me among eminent people. Thank you for opening my doors to greatness at this time of great need.
May God continue to increase you in wisdom and understanding and reward you for good work in Ikorodu and the nation at large.
God bless Ikorodu Division.
And to my Day 1 Fan and Mentor (Alh. Mohammed Andu Tahir Adebayo, May your Soul Rest In Perfect Peace),” wrote on his page
