With Ebola ravaging his homeland, world-famous Liberian soccer star George Weah decided he could make a difference by singing about it.
Weah said he hopes the song will help stop the spread of the deadly disease, which has so far killed 961 in Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Nigeria in West Africa. Nearly 2,000 people have been infected, and health officials have said they are struggling to contain it.
“Let us all arise and come together to fight Ebola; Ebola is real,” the lyrics of the song exhort. Experts say fear and misunderstanding of Ebola have led many to ignore medical advice, fueling the disease's spread. Some even doubt the disease's existence.
