(How cobhams a young blind music producer became an high achiever}
Watching cobhams asuquo’s magic fingers race from one side of the piano to another at the 2008 future awards , showed that he had not only mastered his art, but he has gained mastery over his challenges. With the talented trio of segun obe, essence, and ego performing the Nigerian national anthem, it just communicated the fact that in every corner of Nigeria, lies an hidden genius waiting to break loose. During the performance, I concluded that there is more to cobhams than meets the eyes.He needs no introduction especially in the Nigerian music terrain. Having created musical masterpieces for the likes of asa,dare art alade, rooftop mcs,modele, dekunle fuji.You will definitely conclude that any music cobhams bakes with his magic fingers must become an instant hit.
Though he is visually impaired, but he is not without a clear sense of vision. He could easily have been the next kid begging by the windshield of the street of Lagos. But this highly skillful pianist and sought after music producer has chosen to bounce back from his challenges. He chose to see his glass cup as half full instead of seeing as half empty like pessimists do. He has faced a whole lot of challenges and tough times, but he says:” I have chosen not to see challenges. Today, young Nigerians draw inspiration from this award winning producer, who recently clinched the producer of the year at the just concluded hip hop world awards. He has proven that ability lies in disability. Every weakness you have can become a great tool of strength , if you,look inwards and maximize the God-given potential, the creator has deposited on your inside. John foppe the American Motivational has no arms, Nick vijucic the American pastor has no limbs, yet he claims that he is not limited. Our own yinka ayefele despite the fact that he is on a wheel chair ,smiles to the bank after every of his profitable music performances. Dear friend, what’s your excuse? Nothing can stop you from getting to the top unless you decide to stop yourself. Stop looking at your disabilities and start strengthening your unique abilities. According to Herb greenherb, the blind co-author of Succeed on your own terms: “Everyone has key strengths and key limitations, that is the human condition the real winners in this world are those individuals, who know their strengths and are able to create situations that play to their unique abilities where there limitations are of little consequence”.
