Thanks to our Stars for bringing us unity in our country. I’m also pleading to our leaders to come together in unity to redeem our country from the hands of backwardness.
May God bless Salone.
Sierra Leone is all what we have and we have come a long way to produce star musicians. Compared with the west and African countries like Uganda, Nigeria and Egypt, Sierra Leone musicians make me proud.
I am very happy reading about the unity among Sierra Leoneans. His Excellency´s message to all is gaining ground in the country.
This is what all Sierra Leoneans ought to do, and not the separation introduced during the APC regime. I do hope all Sierra Leoneans will be happy to be there.
I congratulate the organizers and those who helped it happen.
