"Amazing good for him."
"People have no boundaries, amazing."
"Unbelievable!!! That's incredibly!"
"I mean isn't that kinda what he trained for and the whole point of him being there? It's not like he just made a snap decision to do it and then was good at it."
A one-leg man danced with pure joy
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.
