Award-winning child actor Abraham Attah is still reaping the rewards from his breakout role in the Hollywood film Beasts of No Nation.
After presenting an award at the 88th annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night, to which the 15-year-old showed up wearing a black tuxedo with a pair of black velvet TOMS slip-on shoes, he’s set to return to Ghana with the shoe brand donating 10,000 pairs of TOMS, in appreciation, to less privileged children in Ghana.
Speaking to the American presenter Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet, Abraham said:
This shoes was made by TOMS, and it was custom made for only me, and they are donating 10,000 pairs of shoes to Ghana, so it’s pretty cool.
TOMS confirmed the same in a tweet.

Prior to the Oscars, Abraham was also spotted in TOMS shoes at the Independent Spirit Awards, where he took home the Best Actor in a Lead Role award.
There’s a proverb that says: “A child who washes his hands well could eat with kings.” Abraham is making the most out of his huge opportunity, and by all appearances, he seems to be handling it and himself very well. Not only is he bringing pride upon himself, he’s bringing pride to all of Ghana, whom he represents whenever he goes abroad on these publicity tours.
