Tanzania super star Vanessa Mdee surprised her fans after revealing that she’s clinically blind.
During East Africa Got Talent Show, Mdee told a contestant that she’s been blind but that didn’t stop her from pushing for her goals and becoming a renowned singer.
The contestant, Mark, 21, who was born with an eye condition called cataracts and is also a cancer survivor. He impressed the judges with his performance leaving them very emotional.
“It is unusual for someone so young to sing so soulfully, you can tell that you have been through stuff. I’m clinically blind in one eye as well, but that has not stopped me from pursuing my biggest dreams,” she said.
She went ahead adding that,
“Let that be the fuel for you no matter what happens at the end of this competition, to me you are a winner and you’re going to continue winning.”
Clinically Blindness is being impaired or having a complete loss of vision and corrective eyewear such as eyeglasses or contact lenses cannot reverse the effect.
