In a recent interview with The Punch newspaper, visually impaired music producer Cobhams Asuquo stated that he does not regret being blind.
â€œI donâ€™t know to be quite honest. That would involve turning back the hands of time. I have met some amazing people in life and I think, so far, I have lived a glorious life and I continue to live an amazing life. I am not sure I want to turn back the hands of time for anything, not even for the gift of sight.â€
When asked if there were times he wished he didnâ€™t have the gift of sight, he didnâ€™t mince words. â€œNone that I can remember. I think I have overcome the desire for sight. I know it is a beautiful thing and it is absolutely necessary. Life is interesting and you do not know what it is going to throw at you. For me, I am grateful for the gift of life. I enjoy my life and I donâ€™t think I sit and imagine what my life would be like if I could see.
â€œQuite honestly, I want to see for stupid reasons. I want to see, because I want to learn how to play golf.
I am an optimist by nature and I donâ€™t think I walk around saying I want to see. One other reason I would really love to have sight is to see my wifeâ€™s face but I have the privilege of touching it which is much better than seeing it.â€ Utterly touching and inspiring.
