Victor Boniface is putting his injury layoff to good use.

The Bayer Leverkusen striker has already made the year of a Nigerian artist who drew a mirror-image likeness of the Super Eagles star.

FlowzPam Art has been sketching his favourite footballers for over a year and he first caught the eye of social media users with the most famous face in football, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Often accompanied by the phrase, 'It costs $0.00 to retweet', the crafter of photo-quality drawings posts all of his creations in the general hope that he will get more recognition than just a 'like'.

Boniface gave FlowzPam more than he could have imagined, as the Bundesliga star sent the artist N500,000. The overjoyed Flowz posted the proof of payment to let fans know he wasn't playing around.

The striker is currently sidelined with a groin strain and has missed Nigeria's momentous run to the AFCON 2023 final.

He underwent surgery in January and Leverkusen have stated that he will be out for at least three months, as per Reuters.

Boniface has scored 10 goals and provided seven assists as his top flight club have climbed to the top of the German league, as per Bundesliga.

Flowz is also known for highlighting the difficulty of the social media hustle in a humourous way, while his other artworks include musicians and film stars.

Most recently, the artist gifted the 2023 CAF Player of the Year a framed drawing of his younger self, which Victor Osimhen gratefully accepted while he and the Super Eagles chase history in the Ivory Coast.

Victor Boniface transfer speculation

Sports Brief recently reported on Victor Boniface disclosing his favourite Premier League club.

The information fueled speculation that he could be headed to England's shores in the summer.

The 23-year-old is one of the hottest strikers in Europe, bagging 16 goals in all competitions so far.
