January 30, 2014 – Blind Nigerian Music Producer Cobhams Emmanuel Asuquo “My Blindness Is A Gift”

33-year-old Cobhams Asuquo who raised popular musicians like Asa, Timi Dakolo, Omawumi and Bez recently talked about his blindness and how his condition has distinguished him.

Hear what the talented song writer said about his ‘Gift Of Blindness’:

Blindness has been a gift for me because it has done pretty good things to me. It has brought me face to face with my reality. It has brought me face to face with possibilities and failure. It has been a gift to me because it has helped to reduce the measure of distraction in my life. I like to say blindness is a focus. It helps create focus. It could be a gift in many ways. Never mind that it is what anyone would wish the other person, but it is a gift to me. I just feel that whoever is blind can still make the best out of any situation he finds himself.  Being blind has helped add the wow factor in what I do. It has helped me to be focused. I don’t think there are many things that I do that you can’t find other people, who are not blind, doing well. There are people like my friend, Don Jazzy, who are absolutely fantastic producers. Don Jazzy is not blind. There is Quincy Jones, a legendary producer, who is not blind. But the blindness has sort of added that wow factor to what I do. It has brought to fore my gifts and ability and I am quite thankful for that.

Cobhams Asuquo is happily married to Ojuola Olukanni and they are blessed with kids.

Hmmm what a thankful man!
