- A young Nigerian artist, John Amanam, has put his skills into good use and created prosthetics that are fit for black people
- Photos of his artworks have gone viral with people saying they found it quite amazing
- A Twitter user, @DesrineEnnis, spoke about how using John's piece gave her a new life after 20 years
At this point, there is no gainsaying the fact that many Nigerians are really talented. John Amanam got massive media attention with his sterling craftmanship.
He created prosthetics for people with dark skin. This is amazing! Photos shared by Twitter handle @Blacksregion showed the artificial hands and fingers he created that look perfect.
You would almost mistake it for real body parts. Many people who commented on the photos said if they were placed side by side with the natural parts, they would not be able to tell them apart.
In one of the photos on Twitter, the man posed with the leg. Another has different shades fit for the black skin. These pieces will really restore confidence to those that need them.
See the photos below:
As at the time of writing this report, the artworks have gathered over 93,000 likes and thousands of comments.
Below are some of the reactions:
"I love this so much!"
"I am an above knee amputee John just made the cover for my prosthetic leg. For the first time in over 20 years I am comfortable wearing a skirt. Awesome job!! Thank you John!"
"These look so real I’m still in doubt. Great work!"
"These look so real! I was scared for a moment thinking the worse until I read the caption."
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the video of a physically challenged man dancing to Naira Marley's Koleyewon went viral online as people were amazed by it all.
In the clip, the young man made cool gbese and the popular hand moves popularised by Zlatan's Lagos Anthem.
The 15-second video is really a great delight to watch. If there was a dancing competition right there, the man could easily be a winner with his spontaneous dexterity.
Shared by the singer, the content has been seen over 190,000 as at the time of writing this report, with many commending the man's footwork.
