DISABILITY is not inability, so goes the adage.
A German-based Zimbabwean DJ and radio presenter, Tafadzwa Nyamuzihwa, is proving that anyone can achieve greatness regardless of their physical limitations.
The 37-year-old is popularly known as “DJ Nyamz”.
He recently won the Holman Prize, pocketing US$25 000 for his efforts.
The Holman Prize is described as an annual award for the blind and visually Impaired in San Francisco, United States, to encourage and nurture the “can-do” attitude within the blind community.
It was established in 2017 and rewards three blind or visually impaired individuals with $25,000 each to realise a big idea.
It was named for James Holman, a prolific blind world traveller. In this year’s contest, there were 37 contestants from 18 countries.
Nyamuzihwa says he plans to open recording studios in two African countries that will employ and train blind and low vision people to become radio and audio entertainers.
Nyamuzihwa was born sighted but went totally blind at the age of 25.
