I've heard a lot of people referring to this fellow as a British artist, but he's not; he lives in England, but I believe he's from Nigeria, so I found your reference to African art pretty interesting. I've also heard that he's a pretty devout practitioner of one of the traditional Christian denominations.
Tempest in a teapot, if you ask me. Not least the argument about the public pittance that goes to support the arts.
