Who would have ever dreamed that a 15 year-old boy like Abraham Attah will bring such fortune to suffering Ghanaian kids? Well, that’s exactly what happened. Abraham Attah stormed the 88th Academy Awards (Oscars) on Sunday in an outfit that got so many tongues moving. He looked extremely cute and cool in clean cut black black tuxedo and a pair of velvet TOMS shoes.
Remarkably, no one has ever won the TOMS to an Oscars, hence, Attah brought recognition to the shoe company which they greatly appreciated.
The for-profit shoe brand is known for donating a pair of shoes to children in need for every pair of shoes sold, so Attah was not only looking fashionable but he was also making a difference in the process.
Now, the company has decided, instead of donating just one pair for Attah’s trendy look, but to donate 10,000 of those shoes to needy Ghanaian kids.
These shoes was made by TOMS and it was custom made for only me,” Abraham told E! Correspondent Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.
And they are donating 10,000 pairs of shoes to Ghana, so it’s pretty cool.”
TOMS then took to Twitter to share the exciting news, alongside a photo of Attah on the red carpet.

This isn’t the first time he was seen in the comfortable yet stylish footwear, either, as he sported a pair of lace-up TOMS on Saturday night at the Independent Spirit Awards, where he won Best Male Lead Actor.
The same photo was also posted to TOMS’ Instagram, with the caption,
We’re so thankful for @abraham.attah.nii’s choice to wear #TOMSshoes on the red carpet last night. We’re excited to give 10,000 pairs on his behalf to the children in need in his home country of Ghana. Giving looks good on you, Abraham!”
While speaking on presenting an award at the Oscars this year, Attah told Ryan Seacrest that he was not nervous to mount the stage.
Yeah, it’s pretty crazy because I didn’t imagine that this is how huge it is going to be at the Oscars and this is my first time too. No, I am not nervous …the first time I came to Hollywood I got nervous but now I’m not,” Attah said.
