Akpojivi Joel Onoriode also known as ‘DADDY K’ is a Dubai based artist, businessman and philanthropist. He is also the founder and CEO of FINISHING GLANCE LIMITED and managing director of PORSH AND GLANCE GENERAL TRADING, a general goods and supply company. He recently announced that he will be holding virtual exhibitions live via his Instagram platform to afford some of his fans and followers who are art enthusiasts the opportunity to check out his works and buy pieces they might be interested in acquiring or owning.
He announced this a couple of days ago via his Instagram stories. He said the decision came because nobody knows when things will go back to normal as a result covid infections and surging deaths worldwide. He stated that as a result of the Covid 19 pandemic restrictions put in place to check the further spread of the infections, the safest way to interact with his fans and followers as well as prospective clients is virtually.
He said that since instagram introduced its LIVE streaming option it has become one of the easiest ways for creatives to showcase their art and content to their fans and followers. “This pandemic has taught us all to explore and utilize all available platforms to reach both prospective and new clients” he says and so he chose this option because most of his fans and followers are on Instagram and he can interact with them real time which makes it even better.
