O! Chips – Weesay, Liberia

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!
