Young Ghanaian actor, Abraham Attah, has disclosed that 10,000 pairs of the shoes he wore on the red carpet at Sunday’s 88th Academy Awards (Oscars) will be donated to charity in Ghana.
The 15-year-old ‘Beasts of No Nation’ star and Oscar award presenter arrived at the Award ceremony Sunday dressed in a black tuxedo and velvet TOMS shoes.
Abraham, who caught everyone’s attention with his classic look, disclosed to E! correspondent, Ryan Seacrest that the shoe brand will donate 10,000 pairs of shoes to Ghanaians.
The donation is in line with TOMS, which is a for-profit shoe brand, with the aim of donating a pair of shoes to children in need for every pair sold.
Abraham Attah also wore a lace-up TOMS to the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday night where he won ‘Best Male Lead’.
Touching on presenting an award at the Oscars this year, Attah told Ryan Seacrest that he was not nervous to mount the stage.
“Yeah, it’s pretty crazy because I didn’t imagine that this is how huge it is going to be at the Oscars and this is my first time too. No, I am not nervous …the first time I came to Hollywood I got nervous but now I’m not,” Attah said.
