Ghanaian actor and TV personality, Chris Attoh Attoh hosted the fashion for life fundraising show for sickle cell and Cervical cancer at the Yaradua Centre in Abuja, Nigeria on Sunday, December 11. Chris was joined by Big Brother Amplified star and Kiss FM presenter, Vina to steer the affairs of the fundraiser that saw the actualization of a substantial amount of money to help further support people living with sickle cell and cervical cancer, as well as the prevention of the spreading of both conditions.

The NEA Pan African Actor of the year winner comments: “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 given, 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 out to 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. I am constantly searching for new ways in which to show and share my gratitude to fans as well as seeking 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,” he added.

The actor is currently gearing up for his upcoming movie to be shot in Ife, Nigeria starting in January. Chris will be acting alongside some local and international leads. http://www.ameyawdebrah.com/
