Managing Director of Despite Media Group, Dickson Narh, popularly known as Fadda Dickson, has purchased a special artwork.
The painting is special not only because it has Fadda Dickson as the muse but it is because it was painted by someone special.
The painter, Mr Acheampong, is a physically challenged artist who used his mouth to draw the beautiful portrait of Fadda Dickson and many others like it.
Acheampong's painting was purchased by Fadda Dickson after he appeared The Natalie Fort Show on GH One TV.
According to Natalie Fort who presented the painting to Fadda Dickson, the media guru paid generously for the work.
Sharing photos from the presentation of the artwork, Natalie Fort wrote:
"On the maiden episode of #TheNatalieFortShow, I interviewed the dexterous mouth artist Mr. Acheampong, whose splendid portrait of @faddick - MD of the Despite Media Group, attracted a generous purchase of this piece by the muse himself!
"Grateful to have had the opportunity to engage with both talents: a pioneer of the physically challenged in art, and of media and marketing strategy."
Speaking on the show, Acheampong revealed that he taught himself how to draw after realising that he could not do much.
"I understood my situation and decided that art was the only thing that I could do so I tried to teach myself.
"It was tough in the beginning but with God's grace, I have been able to master it now," Acheampong said to much applauds.
