Sure to be a best-selling artist, Offor will wow your audience just like he did on television’s best music reality show, The Voice. His first performance on the show had Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton all clamoring to coach him. His charisma, music and rich voice will make him the talk of the town, while his personal story of overcoming adversity will inspire and warm the soul.
Offor is a living testament to the tenacity of teaching. In Nigeria, his society wasn’t able to see past his partial blindness, as they assumed mental deficiencies always accompanied physical limitations. In America, Offor benefited from some teachers who supported him academically and musically. After testing into the gifted and talented track in NYC, Offor was accepted into an arts magnet school. He then went on to attended Belmont University in Nashville, where he learned from teachers such as Joe Wooten and other songwriting mentors. He considers himself quite lucky to have had the support of the educators who saw his potential, and now passes on his inspirational story in this uplifting talk.
For most people, life is challenging enough. For those afflicted with blindness, it’s a whole different universe. In this presentation, Offor speaks about his experience overcoming the hurdle that would be insurmountable for some. “While most eleven-year-olds were figuring out which basketball player they wanted to be when they grew up, I had to learn the true definition of who I was. Right around this time, we got a piano in the house, and all the energy that I had used to play basketball and run around went into music.” Offor considered his impairment an enhancement; his other senses were heightened when he lost his sight. During this talk, he reveals how he got through the toughest moments of his life, what he learned and how he flourished by focusing on music, education and hope.
Due to necessity, Offor crossed an ocean as a young child and grew up in a completely different culture from the one he knew in Africa. Although he left Nigeria nearly 20 years ago, he still knows where he comes from. Offor is currently in production on a documentary about his extraordinary life; he hopes that the film will bring him back home for a very special performance in Nigeria. In this presentation, he discusses the importance of remaining true to oneself while maintaining cultural heritage and family ties.
