He is blind and his guitar is an old oil can, but the world will soon know him.

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.
