Ghanaian pencilled artist, Emmanuel Apraku popularly known as Ray Styles is dead.

This was announced by television and radio personality, Giovanni Caleb today on his Twitter page.

The death of the artist follows months of battle with liver cancer.

Many Ghanaians have reacted to his death as many say Ghana has lost a huge talent.

According to sources, Emmanuel Apraku was in need of £40,000 to undergo urgent surgery.

While a GoFundMe account was set up on Wednesday, August 19 to raise $55,000 to support Emmanuel, a tweet via his handle said the First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo had donated $20,000 to help cover the cost of his treatment.

The development resulted in some celebrities taking to their social media platforms to solicit funds for the talented young man.

Through the collaborative effort of social media users and celebrities his family was able to raise funds beyond the targeted £40,000 needed for the surgery.

But sources close to the family say he passed on today.
