Kenyan artist who caugh Steve Harvey’s attention has landed lucrative deal with international personalities.
Kenyan pencil artist Collins Omondi Okello has opened up on the great success that came with comedian and TV host Steve Hervey’s recognition of his work.

My last communication with Steve, he confirmed that his team will get back to me with all the necessary information. It will happen, Steve assured. Only the time is still unknown for obvious reasons. It could be anytime, just awaiting confirmation.
The artist said he received great attention and the impact the acknowledgment had on his craft, considering there were many artists doing the same job.
He added that meeting Steve would be the icing on the cake.
Meeting Steve is an added advantage and icing on the cake, him showing interest to have it out of the possible thousands (hundreds of thousand) other artist’s impressions of him is mind-blowing. My profile received a huge boost from this.
Omondi also revealed that he had received a lot of orders from local and international top personalities to have him create more art.
He promised to give updates on these influential personalities to keep his followers entertained with some amazing work.
The young artist’s spotlight saw him featured on International news channel CNN. He spoke of not expecting much to happen from the viral story but added that he was humbled by the experience.
