Albino Entertains Crowd At Independence Celebration
The 164th Independence Day celebration in Voinjama, Lofa County was marked by several activities, including the dedication of projects in various parts of the county, sports among others.
The actual celebration was held in the Voinjama Administrative building and was only intended to accommodate at least one-thousand persons who were served official invitation by the Ministry of State for Presidential Affairs and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Even though, it was estimated that the building would have accommodated at least one thousand persons, but reports gathered indicate that the hall could not accommodate even six hundred persons.
The rest of the people who had congregated in that small Liberian city (Voinjama) to witness the ceremony were left with no options but to remain standing outside the building to take glances at the various traditional and other dancers.
The crowd could not hold their excitements when a little albino girl was called on stage to perform.
The young albino entertained and thrilled the thousands of on looker with enthusiasm, even better than some adult dancers at the ceremony.
With the level enthusiasm seen in the young albino girl, many believed she would become one of Liberia’s best cultural dancers when provided the needed support and care.Writes, Sam Zota, Jr.
