Some people are born into circumstances that are truly extreme poverty, and while it may be challenging for them to break free of those circumstances, it is not impossible for them to do so.
There are many examples of this truth, but in recent weeks, everyone’s attention has been drawn to a talented boy from Nigeria whose story of overcoming incredible obstacles has inspired people all over the world.
Anthony Mmesoma Madu, who is 11 years old, was born in Lagos. The child in the video is seen dancing deftly in the rain while wearing shorts and a sleeveless blouse.
The performance is captured on video. In spite of the fact that he is not wearing any shoes, he is dancing on a gravel road that is flooded with water.
The young man’s internet fans were blown away by his remarkable level of talent. It is not difficult for prominent artists such as Viola Davis and Cynthia Erivo, both of whom are also actors, to extol his praises.
The footage for Anthony’s music video was taken in front of Leap of Dancing Academy, the dance studio where he has been developing his artistic skills for some time.
The young man was in disbelief when he learned that his impromptu presentation would go viral on social media and that he would be given a scholarship to study in New York.
Jacqueline’s curiosity was brought to the attention of Anthony’s instructor, Daniel Ajala Owoseni, who assisted the young student in making the most of the extraordinary opportunity that had presented itself.
Ifeoma Madu, Anthony’s mother, wanted him to become a priest when he was younger; however, his interests lie in a completely opposite direction. He was singled out for dancing at first, but now everyone is thrilled for him and his accomplishment.
This young boy learned how to dance by watching videos posted on YouTube; he did not start taking in-person classes until 2017, when his dance teacher Daniel launched a school in Lagos.
Leap of Dancing Academy provided an economical alternative for the young man to take advantage of, which Anthony was able to take full advantage of despite the fact that his parents were unable to pay for him to continue his dance studies. Ballet is everything to me.
When I dance, I have the sensation that I’m on top of the world. It brings me a great deal of joy to say that prior to completing any of my mother’s errands, I always warm up by dancing ballet.
Anthony proclaimed, “I am in complete awe of ballet.”
This dancer has a very promising future ahead of him, and as a reward for his discipline, he will most certainly seize all of the opportunities that life has to offer him in the future.
His story inspires us because he never stopped dreaming in spite of all the challenges he faced, and now he has the opportunity to realize his dreams.
Once again, social networking sites have shown that they are capable of accomplishing remarkable things.
