Following his drawing of the late Ebony Reigns and highlife artiste KiDi, Gilbert Atendoh, a creative Ghanaian student at the Mankessim MA. A. School in the Central region, has finally earned the attention of his Member of Parliament.
The exceptionally-creative teen’s drawing made national waves and has finally gained support from the sitting Member of Parliament for Mfantseman Constituency, Hon. Ekow Hayford.
Kwabena Atta Kakra, Gilbert’s number one fan and teacher, has been exhibiting every single drawing of his pupil on social media as part of his laudable effort to showcase Gilbert as a creative genius.
His recent post of the young Ghanaian talent featured the Member of Parliament together with Gilbert in photos.
Kwabena Atta Kakra shared photos of Hon. Ekwo Hayford and Gilbert, who held a drawing of his MP in a frame on Facebook.
''Here is Gilbert Atendoh, the product of Mankessim M/A 'A' who stuns the world with his awesome pencil drawings of the late sensational dancehall artiste, Ebony and the "Sugar boy" kidi got the MP of Mfantseman, Korssah Brown awed and elated,'' Atta Kakra's Facebook post stated.
He further said: ''The young boy's recent drawing caught the MP's attention and dare Gilbert's to draw him (Korssah Brown) with pencil only. Within a day, Gilbert has done the work perfectly. Just yesterday, the MP surprised the boy and his parents and made their evening a memorable one!''
Meanwhile, a photo of Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo performing an impressive role as a pageboy during the blissful wedding ceremony of JB Danquah in 1951 has left many utterly mesmerized.
The historic photo of then little Nana Akufo-Addo in a regal white outfit, seated next to JB Danquah, a former Ghanaian statesman and lawyer, has generated pleasant commentaries after the photo was shared by a popular Facebook page.
