Ray Styles – the sick Ghanaian artiste known for being the founder of ‘Penciled Celebrities’ has spoken up to thank Ghanaians for donating swiftly to raise the money needed to help him undergo surgery.
In a video recording, Ray expresses appreciation for the immense amount of love people have shown him.
Born Emmanuel Apraku, news went viral earlier this week that the artist, whose style of penciled art has gained him fame, had fallen ill with a liver condition.
He needed 40,000 pounds to undergo surgery and Ghanaians responded immensely.
Within 24hours after his plight came out, about $70,000 was raised through GoFundMe alone – an astonishing amount far exceeding the initial target.
With the money now secured, it’s only a matter of time for him to undergo the surgery and be healed.
