Chris Attoh in Nigeria
Sleek Ghanaian actor and Nigeria Entertainment Award’s Pan African Actor of the year 2011, Chris Attoh continues to make Ghana proud and this time he is doing so by supporting a worthy cause.
Last Sunday, December 11, Chris hosted the Fashion For Life show in neighbouring Nigeria to raise funds for sickle cell and cervical cancer patients.
The event took place at the Yaradua Centre in Abuja.
Sharing the stage with Chris was Vina Longpet, a former Big Brother Africa housemate and currently a radio presenter on Kiss FM in Abuja.
The two emcees did an extraordinary job raising funds to help further prevent the spread of sickle cell and cervical cancer.
Chris said that he was grateful for the platform given him and also thankful for a chance to display his mc skills in another country and city to support a good cause.
"I am happy to have had this platform to be able to help people. As an African entertainment icon, I believe firmly in the phrase ‘To whom much is giving, much is expected’. When you are watched by millions across the continent and people enjoy you every day, then you have been blessed with the rare responsibility of reaching people, even if it's with a message every different time, and this platform gave me that opportunity. Last night, I believe we spread further awareness against sickle cell and cervical cancer; two of the worst kind of killers on the African continent,” he said on Monday.
“I am constantly searching for new ways in which to show and share my gratitude to fans and that's not all, but I constantly also seek new ways to give back to society. Indeed, I am happy to be in support of a worthy cause and to be instrumental in its unfolding. It was a pleasure to be a part of this transitional event, and to utilise this platform in reaching out to both victims and fellow supporters.”
Christopher Attoh looks forward to leaving his mark as an icon that did something about something during his time.
He is currently gearing up for his new and upcoming movie to be shot in Ife, Nigeria, this January. Chris will star alongside some Nollywood stars and international actors.
