Although there’s a popular dictum that says there’s ability in disability; a visit to the splendid home of one of Nigeria’s and indeed Africa’s finest producer, song writer and singer; Cobhams Asuquo inside the sprawling estate of Ogudu GRA, re-shapes that aphorism to ‘there are torrents of abilities in disability’. Cobhams is such a phenomenon! He even helps his wife in taking care of business in the kitchen; as he went ahead to rescue a burning rice in the presence of this reporter when his wife was engrossed in some other things. The way he makes his way around the house without any assistant is absolutely stunning!
So touching is the fact that this handsome and talented creative genius has lost his sight but that has not stopped him from beaming with life and even doing magnificent things than people with sight. In this interview with Opeyemi Ajayi, Cobhams revealed his best kept secrets on family life, the kind of woman he married, how he goes about his daily activities without much ado, his relationship with Asa and sundry issues.
