He sold the photographs at Non-Fungible Tokens, NFTs, on Opensea.
The photographer said that each picture was sold at 0.15 ETH and when converted to Naira, it amounted to N740k.
However, Babatunde revealed that it was not easy before he made his first sale at OpenSea explaining that it took four months of consistency before he finally hit gold.
He told Legit.ng in an exclusive chat: “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.
