Having a disability is never an excuse for mediocrity. 19-year-old Victoria Ibeabuchi proved this fact many times over, as she took over the stage in a heated duel on Star The Winner Is game show over the weekend.
An undeniable dazzling beauty, Victoria, who had an accident as a child leaving her right hand affected did not let this deter her as she took the stage by storm while delivering a flawless rendition of Asa’s Jailer for a shot at getting closer to the life-changing grand prize of 10million Naira and a brand new car.
While reliving her experience in primary school, visibly upset Victoria said “Growing up has not been easy for me, I remember been called handicapped, one-handed and that depressed me terribly”.
Victoria who planned to open a home for physically challenged people if she won 10million naira, gave her duel opponent Brigid Oye a good run but lost the round with a slim margin of 49-52 votes from the 101-jury members and got eliminated from the competition.
Lesson learnt, talent overrides disabilities anytime
