Adewumi disclosed that each of the photos was sold at 0.15 ETH an equivalent to N740k.
The wait for a buyer was a lesson in patience, the photographer revealed that it took him months before making the N740k NFTs Sale at OpenSea.
In his interview with Legit Ng, he said that,
“It’s quite hard and it’s mentally draining because it took me four months before my first sales. As well as hustling for visibility on Twitter which is a form of a marketplace, helping other artists retweet their works to be seen by collectors because they did the same for me. (Making friends in general because that’s what the community should be about) joining spaces to talk about my works and how they were all brought to existence. Also, My Metamask wallet got compromised twice and I felt like giving up but nothing comes easy.”
“So I would say continuity brought this, this isn’t just a solo winning for me, it’s a sign that the community is here for artists and artists are the new celebrities. It’s our time and we should continue supporting ourselves.”
