President Weah’s COVID-19 Song Takes Grip, As It Is Being Used to Create Awareness Of The Virus

The Liberian leader, President George Manneh Weah, winner of 1995 Ballon d’or in football has made another history by climbing the musical chat with his latest COVID-19 song which is being heard throughout the city on a daily basis; also being used as a message of preventive measures of this deadly virus.

For ordinary Liberians who spoke to the GNN said the President’s message on the prevention of the virus is cleared, and must be taken into consideration as a preventive message to stop the spread of the virus which has taken millions of lives around the globe with Liberia which was hard hit during the Ebola crisis forming part of this global nightmare.

Together with renowned Liberian gospel and secular musicians threading the same message of unity, and most especially preaching messages that will bring relief to Liberians and the rest of the world on the preventive measures that could be applied to isolate them from this deadly virus.

“This President is talented; his song has given us total relief, and more awareness on how to go about to prevent ourselves from contracting this virus. My only regret was he should have empowered local musicians who are struggling financially to share their messages through song,” Thomas Q. Addison, a neighbor of the Liberian leader residence speaking to the GNN noted.

“I appreciate the President; he is a wonderful person, can you imagine his music has made me personally to be aware of the danger this virus poses to our lives, great countries like the United States, France, United Kingdom and others have falling prey to its deadly hands; taken millions of lives. Again I appreciate him a lot,” Mary Duncan, a resident of Central Monrovia in a chat with the GNN stressed.

For others, in the opposition community who spoke to the GNN also said the melodious messages in the Liberian leader song have made them to take up time in listening to his COVID-19 song, “I think the President is indeed good at certain things including sports and other social activities, but not in governance, however, it is the will of the Liberian people, nothing the minority can do,” Nathaniel Kangar a resident of Barnerville gave his take on the President’s COVID-19 song.
