A Kenyan artist may have struck gold after one of his pencil drawings went viral and caught the attention of comedian, Steve Harvey.
It all started when the artist, Collins Omondi Okello, created a pencil drawing of famous TV personality Steve Harvey.
Collins shared his work on Twitter with hopes that the TV personality will find it by asking his followers to tag and comment until it reaches him.
The piece of art was a headshot of the vibrant Harvey complete with authentic reflection, wrinkled eyes filled with mirth and his signature mustache.
