President John Mahama has hailed young Ghanaian actor Abraham Attah for making Ghana proud.
In a tweet on Monday, the President said, “Congrats @AttahNii. Such a positive positioning of the Ghana Brand. We can do with many more Abraham Attah’s.”
Attah, who won Best Actor at the Film Independent Spirit Awards last week, also made international headlines when he presented an award at the Oscars on Sunday.
The actor, 15, beat fellow actors Ben Mendelsohn (Mississippi Grind), Christopher Abbott (James White), Jason Segel (The End of the Tour) and Koudous Seihon (Mediterranea) for the honour.
Attah won the best actor prize for his portrayal of a child soldier in the Netflix drama “Beasts of No Nation” — his first acting role.
