Talented artist acquires six ‘private jets’ after selling one of his artworks for $1 million

A young Ghanaian artist has narrated how he was able to set up an expensive arts centre in the northern part of the country through his art.

Ibrahim Mahama, who lives in Tamale said he has been able to sell an artwork for $ 1,000,000 (N411,690,000) and others at lower but expensive prices.

The 34-year-old shared his story in an interview on Exposed By Bebs YouTube channel

Ibrahim attended Pope John’s Secondary School in Koforidua after which he went to KNUST in 2006 to study Painting and Sculpture, followed by his master’s degree and PhD. Read more:

He said he was able to acquire six different aircraft ranging between $10,000 (N4,116,900) to $20,000 (N8,233,800) each for his art centre, adding that they are however, not functional.

According to the artist, he hopes to inspire hope and life in the northern part of Ghana where he has already acquired 100 acres of land for different big-time projects.

Speaking on how he acquired the six aircrafts, Ibrahim said they used to be mobile but had been reportedly kept at the Kotoka International Airport for so long that they started getting rusty.

Now, he allows school children and other locals to explore them at no cost, hoping it will make them dream big.
