Ibukun gained recognition after a facebook user, Wap Junior posted the picture and video of his sculptural work on the social media.


The creative sculptor who hailed from Ondo State crafted the bust of the Oba of Benin with his many beads and crown from a standing tree, making his artwork is the best of its kind in Nigeria.
