 STUDENT TESTIMONIES

Moulding machine crushed my skull, the aspiring blind rapper narrated.

On December 11th 2013, I had an industrial accident which led to my blindness. I am Andrew Udofia, a 28 year old man who was employed as an utility worker at Amsad Industries, Lakowe Ajah. In this firm, we produced paving stone and concrete blocks.

On the fateful day, I was instructed to clear the waste from a molding machine which was just repaired. While I bent to do that, someone went to power the machine not knowing I was there.

“All I knew was that the machine crushed my skull and one of my eye ball fell from the eye-socket immediately. I was unconscious for over 42days.”

After being admitted in the hospital for over eight months, eventually, I lost my both sight

Life was miserable to me. I never thought I can do anything meaningful again not until I was told to go for rehabilitation at the Vocational Training Center for the Blind Oshodi.

Today, while I reside and undergo rehabilitation at the blind school, I have come to realize nothing is capable of stopping me from achieving what I dreamt of. I am fully hopeful that through my music lessons, learning musical instruments, my dream of becoming a musical producer as well as a rapper is undoubted

If not for the Federal Nigeria Society for the Blind, what will be my hope, Andrew said.
