Cardi B, her team, and the pencil artist met at the Eko Hotel and Suites and held private discussions.
A statement sent to TODAY NEWS AFRICA in Washington D.C. said the discussions were centered around how to move Africa’s creative industry forward, especially in the areas of art and craft.
“During their meeting, Celebrity Artist, Alesh Akeem, also gifted the American rapper a Hyper-realistic pencil portrait of herself which she later posted on her Instagram story,” the statement said.
Alesh Akeem’s management, the RedAce Company, did not say much about their talks. “We really can’t say much for now, but we can assure you something big is in the pipeline slated for early year 2020; no one will see it coming”.
Alesh Akeem is famous for creating pencil portraits of international celebrities. He has been commissioned by the likes of Rio Ferdinand, The Migos, Jidenna, Ciara, T-Pain, J-Cole, Wizkid, and many more.
Cardi B, a former strip dancer, stormed a strip in Lagos at the weekend and was given a sweet lap dance, reports said.
