First Lady presents her $20,000 pledge to ailing artist, Emmanuel Apraku
Rebecca Akufo-Addo has presented an amount of $20,000 to ailing artist Emmanuel Apraku, otherwise known as Ray. The money which was pledged the First Lady last week Thursday, was received the team behind Ray’s global fundraiser.
Mrs Akufo-Addo also signed a personal note of well-wishing to be delivered to the artist, who has received global acclaim through his PenciledCelebrities Instagram account.
Penciled Celebrities has been one of the artistic pages that has used his art to push the narratives of the modern society we live in.
His work highlights the nuances of everyday social life and he doesn’t shy away from controversial issues such as abuse of children, how people are faking it for social media likes, among others.
He is also not afraid to speak truth to power with his work about the famous footbridge issue and others.
A GoFundMe account was set up to support Emmanuel to undergo emergency surgery.
