Nigeria@55. 55 Nigerians I admire:Cobhams Asuquo

Our personality for today is an interesting fellow. He is Music a maestro, world class entertainer and producer, Cobhams Asuquo. Cobhams is an amazingly gifted human being.

He is a multi-instrumentalist, a music producer, a songwriter and a singer. And boy! Can Cobhams sing! When he opens his mouth, you feel like the world should keep silent and just listen. With strong, rich vocals and an ability to connect with the soul of his listeners, he takes the art to an unusual level. Cobhams was born to sing, and to do it very well.

Something I find particularly refreshing about this Nigerian is that he is so humble he almost makes you feel ashamed of the pride you carry around like rotten baggage. He was born blind, but Cobhams makes blindness look attractive. He carries himself with such grace and panache that you wonder if maybe you should have been born blind just so you could be a little bit like him!

He has focused on producing consistently high quality music; music that is sweet to the ears, edifying to the soul and totally inoffensive to the spirit. Cobhams Asuquo plays music that appeals to old and young. You cannot describe his music as contemporary or as old school; it is just good music. Definitely Cobhams Asuquo has my eternal respect and admirationcobhams
