Young artist wows Akufo-Addo with ‘magical’ drawing

President Akufo-Addo was stunned after a young man presented to him a black and white painting of himself.

The impressive artwork done by the young man who is believed to have graduated from the Prempeh College recently left Akufo-Addo speechless for a moment.

According to the artist, he used less than 24 hours to produce the spectacular drawing of the President as he heard he'd be present at the 70th anniversary of Prempeh college.

Virtually, all the people at the programme were impressed by the work of the young man. Even President Akufo-Addo could not hide his admiration when he saw the drawing for the first time.

The President, at a point, was seen nodding his head in appreciation as the boy presented the drawing to him.

He then showed the portrait to other dignitaries on the podium, including the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, former President Kufuor and Education Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh.

The young artist became an instant hero as he was seen shaking hands with the Asantehene and other dignitaries for a good job done.
