The Disabled within the Nigerian Entertainment Industry

The Disabled within the Nigerian Entertainment Industry

Late Ray Charles had lost his sight in the chronilogical age of seven and his awesome younger brother, two years earlier. The world he used to be saw and basked in their beauty and serenity had become dark and misty. In the face of hardship and seemingly insurmountable mountains because he travelled wearily on life's path, he found solace in music which turned out to be some slack route that late Ray Charles walked upon triumphantly into stardom. Such was living of the great artiste(though blind), who played the piano with dexterity that "RAY" a biopic movie was launched in 2004 starring Jamie Foxx and directed by Taylor Hackford. Our parents would likely use a nostalgic feeling, reliving hit songs such as "I had a woman", "Georgia", "Hit the Road Jack", amongst others with twelve Grammy awards and others coupled with ground breaking achievements recorded in the profile, Ray Charles who given to glory on June 10, 2004 was a classic legend.

"This track is really delicious, I am going in addition of Cobilicious" was the intro of the rap lyrics Cobhams Asuquo reeled in Dekunle Fuji's successful track "No Lele", though many Nigerians were unacquainted with his 'nil vision state'. His popularity soared amongst the populace when he performed the gorgeous thought provoking chorus within the song "Lagi Mo" (The rooftop Top MCs) which saw the song punching the number 1 i'm all over this some Nigerian chart shows. He won the Rap world Awards 2007 for that "producer of the season category", helping the number of statuettes he'd already received. He's presently one of the highly sought after producers inside the music business, making guest appearances on television programmes and reality show (Project Fame West Africa, season 1) along with the solicitation for his services which also includes Corporate bodies, banks (Sky bank's advert using the Akuna matata song)

The icy hands of death almost took away Yinka Ayefele in 1999 when he was in an auto crash. The crash affected his spinal chord and sentenced him to life on a wheel chair. With the fiery trials as well as the stop with the pity partying, he was bold enough to place the ordeal behind him, and bursting forth like water from a rock to quench our thirst with refreshing exciting gospel flavour. Fame, fortune, local and international awards have willingly found their distance to his life.

The Nigerian music terrain can offer this duo that have succeeded on its stage, but can exactly the same be said of the movie industry. We have seen disabled roles (visually impaired/ lame) being performed by able bodied thespians for the best their abilities, but perhaps it would be a shock to an incredible number of movie viewers for medically proven, physically challenged individuals to naturally perform such roles allotted to their able bodied counterparts. Who says there are no talented ones included in this whose acting skills cannot be brushed up, in the end don't assume all A-list thespian studied theatre arts or attended schools that specialized in harnessing such talents.

There are plenty of talented disabled people out there rotting away due to the fact no one has dared to provide them a chance. In the end the scripts may be converted into Braille letters to allow them to read, no less than we realize their sense of hearing is hyper functional than that of the sight seeing fellow. A large number of TV Reality shows have hit the screens these past year or two (dominantly in the Entertainment sector) with a new one emerging by the day, for example Gulder Ultimate search, AMBO, Next movie star, The Intern, Maltina Family dance all, Star Quest, Football with Fash, The Twelve Ambassadors, Government Nigeria, Apprentice Africa, Idols West Africa, Nokia First Chance, Project Fame West Africa.

No reality TV show has been made for your disabled probably borne out of anxiety about not securing sponsors (who're dedicated to making returns for his or her investments), or concern with outright rejection from the teeming viewers. Who says a real possibility reveal that the disabled perform in can not be conceived and birthed, its about ingenuity and who can tell whether such a reality show can function as a best on the list of lot, there is nothing impossible!
