Sammy Olagbaju...When He Was Here

It was Grillo Pavilion Art Fiesta, 2013 edition, in Ikorodu, Lagos, which had Kolade Oshinowo as the celebrant. Again, Sammy Olagbaju was among the art patrons that extended their love for art to those who create the works. He joined others in celebrating Oshinowo.
