Here is Weesay, the Bob Marley of Liberia! He is a blind man who lives in the capital city of Monrovia. Weesay enjoys singing reggae with an instrument that he created using a stick of wood stuck to an oil can. Here is his song, O! Chips. It sounds like there are a couple of strings there, too. We can’t make them out, though. He is definitely great. Let’s make him famous! Share this video!
