Mercer expressed deep emotion, recalling their moving display of the Ghanaian flag on the global platform.

“This beautiful lady and little girl brought the Ghana flag up on stage at Britain’s Got Talent. When I watched the clip, I shed a tear. It was extremely emotional. And the way the Ghana flag was hoisted, you held it out when you were about to start… You placed it on the stage. It was amazing,” he said.
