Thursday, May 8, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: A few weeks ago he was $5,000 richer as a result of donation for the completed bust of Thomas Vincent Ramos, Garifuna hero.
But tonight, sculptor Stephen Okeke has once more run afoul of certain elements that he says are trying to suppress his creativity.
Because his deal with key sponsors of the project has apparently fallen through, Okeke is putting up the bust for sale, as he previously did with that of Philip Goldson.
Okeke says he will not put up with any more abuse from individuals who question his motive for putting together the bust, especially those who suggest he is a con artist trying to milk the community.
If you want to buy the bust contact Okeke at 662-1678.
Donors will be still be recognized if the bust is publicly displayed, however if it is privately acquired they will be refunded.
The cost is $40,000.
