Sampson returns home to Liberia

patient from Liberia, Sampson, walking and smiling with Greta Van Susteren

After several months and several surgical treatments at Mayo Clinic, Sampson returned with pride to the Liberian village where he had once been labeled an outcast due to facial deformities that marred his appearance and his vision. 

As Rochester's KTTC-TV reports, Sampson came to Rochester with the help of MSNBC's Greta Van Susteren and international relief organization Samaritan's Purse. A team of doctors at Mayo Clinic successfully removed multiple tumors from Sampson's eyes and the left side of his face. The growths were caused by neurofibromatosis, a condition Sampson was born with. It's a condition that — as we reported when Sampson first came to Rochester — led some fellow villagers to label him an outcast. But thanks to plastic surgeon Samir Mardini, M.D., and others at Mayo Clinic, all of that is now in the past for Sampson.

Liberia: Stunna In Negotiation For $1Million Deal With Universal Music

The rumor is true.  Speaking with Liberian musician Stunna management this morning, it has being confirmed that Stunna and his team are negotiating with Universal Music to take on the artist.  His team did not confirmed the exact amount, because negotiation is still in process, but it has been said that $1million was the first offer.  The global company's main rival is Temple Music, home to Nigeria's Iyana, who has worked with the Liberian artist in the past.
