Nigeria's Njideka Akunyili Crosby was visited in her studio by former US First Lady, Michelle Obama.

Njideka is a Nigerian-born visual artist. She is also the daughter of the late Dora Akunyili, who was the Director-General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control

Njideka's 2017 botanical painting, titled “Bush Babies”, sold for $3.4 million USD. Since then, there has been a spike in the value of her paintings.
