Africa’s Young Talent Testimonials
Remember all those times your parents would point to a smart kid in your class and ask if they had “two heads”? Well, prepare to ask yourself that question.
In 2015, Esther Okade, who was then 10 years old, enrolled at the Open University, a UK-based distance learning college, becoming one of the world’s youngest college students. Three weeks after enrollment, she was already top of the class, receiving a perfect score on her first test, which she said was “easy.”
Never has victory been handled with such grace as by three-year-old ‘DJ’ Arch Junior, who triumphed at this year’s South Africa’s Got Talent.
His blissed-out beats had both the judges and the audience on their feet, gold confetti firing as he was crowned champion – a Kanye-esque look of indifference on his face.
Cape Town – Five years ago we told you the story of a young musical prodigy, who at the age of six was already drumming with Michael Jackson’s band and had gone on tour to the New Orleans jazz festival:
“This child is not just a poet, she is a seer. God be with her always, because Father, you know her burden will be heavy often. You are chosen, Botlhale, and your heart belongs to God. You can fight, but He has a job for you.”, commented Lydia Jones when Botlhale won South Africa’s Got Talent and kept the judges weeping
She is only 10yrs old, Kenyan, born and raised in Huruma from a humble family background. Wendy started doing acrobats a tender age of four, and now it has taken her to places she has never imagined.
She has performed in front of presidents and many prominent dignitaries among them the President of Kenya Honourable Uhuru Kenyatta, Honourable Paul Kagame of Rwanda, Honourable John Mahama of Ghana and the British Prime Minister David Cameron.
Above all, she is travelling the globe showcasing this talent; she recently finished her Asia tour and is now set to start on her Europe tour
