There were several major highlights of the ceremony, the most touching moment came from one of Flavour’s youngest Liberian fans: Semah G. Weifur.
Semah was born blind, however this amazing young boy, did not let this hinder his talent in singing. Having listened to Flavour’s songs for some time, Semah studiously learned a majority of Flavour’s song lyrics by heart. Meeting his music idol Flavour, has been one his biggest dreams, which he fulfilled that day, when he was taken unaware during his music dedication to the star. Flavour surprised Semah mid-performance by joining him in singing.
There was not a dry eye at the venue after Semah excitedly embraced his music hero.
