Adidas is about to have a Danfo Sneakers
Finally, a Nigerian man whose sneaker design sketch went viral on the web got an opportunity to work with Adidas, a German multinational corporation.
After he drew a canvas and painted it in the popular Lagos danfo color, the young man on Twitter with the handle @Shutabug went viral.
It is safe to say that, for the better, the sketch might just change his life.
Read his Tweets below ;
The last 72 hours have been crazy.
My sketch was meant to be a joke, but people pushed it and now I have a chance to send a proper pitch to Adidas.
I can’t thank you all enough…
This is where the hard work starts. It’s one thing to post a sketch and have it go viral and it’s another thing to actually get a shoe designed and put into production.
Please understand that this might fall through and be nothing more than a viral sketch at the end of the day.
Nevertheless, I promise to give this my absolute best and learn from the experience.
Thank you so much for all your help. Please keep me in your prayers.
