Do You Know Who Laolu Senbanjo Is?

“Laolu who is Beyonce?”

That was the question Laolu Senbanjo’s father asked him after his body art graced Beyonce’s body in Sorry music video from her visual album Lemonade.

That moment marked a turning point in his relationship with his father. Hitherto, he was not accepting of Laolu dumping his supposed prestigious law career for art.

It took Senbanjo five years after his journey to the United States to finally have his art show that hard work and talent can make you stand before men and gods.

Speaking on the acceptance, he says, “At the end of the day every Nigerian parent just wants to be proud of their child and if that thing is outside their reality, it’s hard for them to connect with it.”

He is also quick to add that, "But they see it now because everything is changing, the whole concept of being successful and the method of being successful is changing”.

Apart from his father warming up to his art career, his work with Beyonce has also launched him into global fame.
