Corp Member Bids Farewell To Old Man Whose Photo He Sold As NFT For Over N1m



Young Nigerian Adisa Olashile, who gained notoriety months ago for selling NFT pictures of an old drummer for N1 million, has completed his National Youth Service Program.

You might recall that in April, the corp member posted images of an old percussionist by the name of “Baba Onilu.” Baba Onilu is a talented drummer who travels the world entertaining people.

According to Olashile, who was serving in Oyo state, the elderly drummer routinely visits the Secretariat where Olashile and other corps members congregate for their Community Development Service (CDS).

“I always see this man at the secretariat where we have our CDs, so I tried to make him grin more with my camera,” the author stated. I hope you can all tell how emotional he is.

Adisa gave an update on how he was able to make money off the beautiful photos on April 2. He mints the photos as Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT) and sells them for 0.3 Ethereum (Eth) each on OpenSea.

The cost would be $2,098.32 if the photographer was able to sell two for 0.3 Eth (N1,225,418.88).

After that, the photographer kept his word and paid the elderly man 50% of the cash.

Sharing the pictures on Twitter, he wrote; ”Minted baba’s pictures as nft and got them sold immediately. Inshallahu 50% is going to him. Ramadan Kareem 🌙”

To protect the man’s money, the young corps member opened a bank account for him.

Then he bought a brand-new phone for the drummer and gave him a large picture frame.

Adisa disclosed in a recent post that he has completed his NYSC, adding that he does not know what the future holds.


He took some final photos with the drummer, which he shared on Twitter along with the following message:

”I really don’t know the next thing after this but I’m super grateful that I’m finally done
