Liberia’s world famous ex-soccer star George Weah, one of the leading lights of the global game in the 1990s, has produced a song to raise awareness about Ebola.
Weah hopes the song will help stop the spread of Ebola.
“Let us all arise and come together to fight Ebola; Ebola is real,” the lyrics of the song sings.
Weah, who before he retired was once named FIFA’s player of the year, is now a politician and singer. Weah has run for president twice, unsuccessfully.
Joining hands with Liberia’s Health Ministry, Weah worked with Ghanaian musician, Sidney, to record the song in hopes of raising awareness. Proceeds from sales will go to the Liberian Health Ministry.
