A two-variance collage showing the transformation of a mentally-ill man has evoked pleasant commentary amidst ''the past is not the present challenge''.

An earlier report by YEN.com.gh indicated that the ongoing challenge which has attracted incredible images from people’s past alongside photos of their current state was sparked by the saga about KNUST students, Samuel Aboagye and Nana Ama.

Sammy trended over his emotional reaction over a breakup with his girlfriend, Nana Ama.

A video showing Sammy crying after his girlfriend allegedly dumped had him apologetically saying that the "the past is not the present".

The incident erupted massive conversation on social media with celebrities including John Dumelo, Efia Odo, Delay and others adding their unsolicited opinions.

Following Sammy and Nana Ama's saga is ''the past is not the present" challenge which has rapidly gained prominence online.

The challenge is still attracting inspiring images from many Ghanaians and non-Ghanaians alike.

The recent photos of the mentally-ill man have erupted massive reactions online.

In the collage, the photo on the left showed the unnamed man in his state of mental illness with people flanking him.

The photo on the right had him looking all handsome and sporting a cleanly-shaved head known in local parlance as 'sakora'.

The man was clothed in an African print and had his eyes closed probably in a prayer mood.
