Lol, so this morning, an SS2 student brought a big pencil portrait of Naira Marley to school.

He said he drew it himself.

The head subject teacher seized it and brought him to our staff room.


I Am On My Guidance Counseling Practicum😀

Boy is talented.
He is in art class.

First thing i saw was raw talent.
Instead of me to counsel, im busy admiring.
I hope im not a pop culture counselor bai 😭😭

Was he wrong to draw Naira Marley?
Should he be flogged?

Ps : i concealed his number with my name.
