A comment by Leke Adeboye on artists who make a caricature of original pictures of people has attracted several reactions from Facebook users.
Leke is the son of Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church
Leke wrote on his Facebook Page:
The issue I have with people painting, a picture you already have that is so well taken in a studio is, I ask myself what is the point. I already have a perfectly taken nice picrure if the same thing you decided to draw. Yes it’s nice to draw but can we do an original not a copy of an original.
Some of the copy self will now make you looks like you are eating mango or something is wrong with your ears or eyes. Please just leave the original picture alone. I AM NOT Impressed with copy drawings. God bless you as you do so.
But the comment seems not to go down well with some people who chided him for not being grateful for an artist impression of him and his wife displayed on along with the post.
One of the commentators, Jay Bemigho Silver wrote,
For real? someone took his or her time to draw a painting of you and you are not impressed? It may just be all the person could do to appreciate you, sir. So for every little thing let’s be grateful.
