Artist's sketch catches attention of Kevin Hart

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A Nigerian artist's pencil drawing not only went viral, it caught the attention of his favorite comedian and Hollywood celebrity.

Eli Waduba Yusuf posted a black-and-white illustration of Kevin Hart earlier this month, hoping that the comedian would actually see it.

The Philadelphia native not only saw it, he put in an order for the drawing.

Hart also requested to pay Yusuf "to do a pencil drawing of three of my celebrity friends" for gifts.
