Born Weeseh Freeman, Liberian artiste Weesay went blind in 1998, aged 23 but that did not stop him from living his dream of becoming a celebrated singer.
Using an old oil can, a piece of wood and a number of wires, Weesay designed himself a guitar and learnt how to play it, first on Monrovia streets and now to millions of online audiences.
His music is like his guitar; rough on the edges but sounds great.
His rise to fame came when a popular brand of chips asked him to sing a jingle using his tin guitar.
A video of the performance was uploaded online and it has so far, gained more than nine million views and a number of well-wishers offered to buy him a guitar.
He now has several guitars but still loves to play the one he made himself.
“I know that I am not a small person-God made me to do something,” he said in an interview with Ssebo.
