- The writer, Afgan, Fans.
- In the past when there was a concert; in a local auditorium in the town.
- Based on the order the events happened.
- On that bright and sunny Saturday morning, the radio station was full of Afganisme (that’s how Afgan’s fans are called). They sat on the chairs prepared inside the radio station’s lobby. Some stood in rows in the front yard of the radio station. A spot inside a lobby was prepared with a mini stage for Afgan’s singing performance and a table for Afgan to sign Afganisme’s memorabilia. Finally, after about 40 or 50 minutes wait, Afgan showed up from inside the radio station. He smiled and waved to all Afganisme who had been waiting excitedly saying, “Good morning. How are you all?”. The crowd went crazy, the shouts sounded like a mix of “Fine, thank you” and screams of Afgan’s name.
Then, he started the event by singing his hit single “Dia dia dia”. Afganisme went even crazier, they sang along with him throughout the song. Of course, I did too. I couldn’t take my eyes off this amazing singer who had released three albums. When he finished with the song, the host announced that it was time for autographing the memorabilia. I prepared my CDs and began to stand in the line. When I arrived at the table, I was speechless. It was unreal just seeing him that close. I thought it was really cool seeing him like that because he really just felt like a normal person, which was awesome. He asked my name so that he could write it on the CD to say “To Mia, Love Afgan”. He was also very friendly, so I didn’t feel too nervous when I had a chance to take pictures with him.
- Yes, there was. The conclusion is "He was just an amazing person. And it was the best day ever!"
