The Young Ghanaian actor who presented an award at the Academy Awards, Oscars arrived on the red carpet making a fashion statement that has people in Hollywood talking. The event which has been criticized around the world for being marked as a racially exclusive award ceremony ended up seeing a young Ghanaian Abraham steal the show at the red carpet.
Nevertheless, the brilliant young man who made his country proud was seen sparkling on the red carpet in a tuxedo and TOMS shoes. It seems he made more than just a fashion statement. According to Abraham Attah who spoke to E! correspondent Ryan Seacrest, the shoe brand will donate 10,000 pairs of shoes to the people of Ghana.
The for-profit shoe brand donates a pair of shoes to children in need for every pair sold. There couldn’t have been a better choice. Now let’s talk about the tuxedo! As beautiful as he looked, why wasn’t the young man in Abrantie The Gentleman’s clothing or in Kustom Looks or in Elikem The tailors wear? At least a kente bow tie would have said much.
Last years, Elikem the Tailor crafted some amazing menswear tuxedos with a hint kente. So whose fault is it that the young man didn’t go with our talent? is it the designers did not reach out to the kid? Or is it the kid did not reach out to the designers? Or is it that one did reach out and the other party rejected? Oh gosh I have no idea how these things work, but he should have been on that red carpet with a Ghanaian brand.
I myself have never watched beast of no nation, as I avoid watching slavery and war torn African movies, however I’ve heard numerous compliments regarding his performance. On that note, we salute the young man highly and congratulate him on his new found success, as well as his generous statement with TOMS shoes.
