Connecting with other artists in Lagos

Good day people, hope you are all having a wonderful time, today I decided to write a post on an art event I attended, this was a very interesting and very unique event,  You'd notice artists in Nigeria do not really relate, the connection between artists are very limited, every artist around seems to be minding each other's business, like I did a personal research my self by visiting some artist around and interviewed them, asked several questions on how they often meet other artists or is there any group or platform created to bring all artist to one place, they seems to be non speaking with these artists, which is really depressing, I started thinking of a way to bring this to life, to create a unique platform to connect artist, few days later I was checking and going through my instagram timeline then I saw this artist I was following, called Foladavid, he is an artist and also a medical student he is called a celebrity artist because he happens to be close to celebrities and also really popular on intergram, he has up to about 30thousand followers, he his a portrait artist, he updated a picture on instagram, an image that contains the invention of several artists and art lovers around and even promised to pay for free 50   on quick arrival to the event, it was at a lake area to one will need a  thousand box to get in but the point was that he organized the whole event which was what I was intending, seeing this I was really happy I thought of working with him already, I was present at the event and several artist as well, it was really impressive and unique, I think this is a fresh start for new art in Nigeria, where artists can be recognized and respected for our creativity, I meet a lot of very unique art piece and I had other artists comment about my works as well, several top musicians were present at the event.
