Meet 12-year-old Nicholas Buamah. He is a philanthropist and bestselling author from Metro Atlanta.
According to Black News, he has developed a line of branded school supplies featuring his popular book characters, Kayla and Kyle ,The Walking Dictionaries. The move is to help fund his family-friendly TV show, “Nick’s House” and provide healthcare insurance for 5,000 children in Ghana.
The supplies include Daily and Weekly Journals, Coloring Books, and Composition Notebooks, with some featuring Augmented Reality. Currently, his products are on Amazon and he is also working on a collection of activity books and coloring books for the holiday season, featuring his popular book characters Kayla and Kyle.
Buamah runs a non-profit called Books Without Borders Inc. The American-based Ghanaian has also partnered with Ghana’s National Health Insurance Scheme to assist more than 3,500 children to receive healthcare insurance. He hopes to extend the insurance offer to cover some 5,000 children in Ghana by the close of the year.
The 12-year-old, who is also a motivational speaker, has further started a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for his TV show. Last year, myjoyonline.com reported that Buamah hosted an exclusive red carpet premiere in Atlanta in front of a sold-out audience for his “Nick’s House” TV show. The Mayor of Stonecrest Georgia presented Buamah with a proclamation and declared July 21, 2022, Nicholas Buamah Day in Stonecrest during the event, the report added.
It also said that Nick’s House is directed by award-winning Hollywood producer LaMont Ferrell, who has been behind major shows including Girlfriend’s, The Office, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and Moesha.
Four years prior to his TV show, Buamah had gone viral for writing a book at age seven. Not many seven-year-olds write books, let alone have them added to the Library of Congress’s collection, but Buamah accomplished that feat in 2018 with his book: Kayla & Kyle The Walking Dictionaries: Election Day. Buamah’s book introduces Kayla and Kyle – twins who were competing to become their school’s next class leader. They must first have a class debate to demonstrate that they are capable candidates before votes are cast. This was the first in a series of books written to help elementary children expand their vocabularies. The Georgia talent said at the time that even though he was keen on becoming a mechanical engineer in the future, he had not thrown away the value of vocabulary and communication to his success.
