July 26 marks the 172nd independence of this amazing country Liberia whose meals ,music and pidgin English truely amaze me.
Yes indeed their meals wow me,in comparison to other countries, I’d give them a 10 out of 10.
This past weekend was lit up as it marked the commencement of the independence day of Liberia. The Liberian youths had a three day celebration to commemorate the occasion.

The entire celebration of the independence was crowned on Sunday with football match between two teams ( IE vs BARROW) in which the barrow won. The fun at the park was lit with Liberian pidgin music ( Born to Win) by a Liberian artist called D12 and people were dancing in pairs.
The day was truly interesting as I watched children receiving backpacks, free food and the flow of roasted meat flooded the arena.
The independence day celebration of the Country Liberia was beyond words for me in a nutshell. There’s a saying “no one parties like the Liberians”
