Njideka Akunyili, Daughter of the late Minister of information and NAFDAC DG, Dora Nkem Akunyili, seems to be breaking new ground.

Her painting “Bush Babies” is said to have fetched her a whopping $3.3m( about N1.4bn) making it the most expensive Nigerian art work.

At 18, Njideka’s work has displaced Ben Enwonwu’s “Tutu” which fetched $1.6m.
