The mother of contemporary artist Musa Motha has lauded her child for his grit and valiant soul.
When all four judges gave Motha a group golden buzzer for his audition on Britain’s Got Talent in Manchester last week, he made history.
His exhibition got him a heartfelt applause from passes judgment on Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and Bruno Tonioli, and the crowd that pressed The Lowry Theater to limit.
He gave another outstanding performance on Sunday that captivated both the audience and the judges.
Last week, amputee Motha’s mother, Ntokozo Matale, told Sowetan that she had initially opposed her son’s dance career.
She said for her child to come to the finale was a success all alone.
Motha competed against 15 other extremely talented individuals, including O’Connor, Ghetto Kids, Travis George Malakai Bayoh Duo Odyssey, Amy Lou, Viggo Venn, Olivia Lynes, and Lillianna Clifton.
However, Viggo Venn won the vote and took home £250,000 (roughly R6 million). Lillian Clifton and Cillian O’Connor came in second and third.
Matale, an educator, stated: I am pleased that he reached the conclusion. All of Zone 16—Sebokeng in the Vaal—is pleased with Musa’s accomplishment.
The entire family is content. I don’t have the foggiest idea what to say regarding him. I emphatically have confidence in my kid… Musa has done right by me. I don’t actually have the foggiest idea what to say when I address him yet he realizes that where it counts, I backing and love him.”
She stated that she was against his dance career: I recall that he simply refused to pursue an engineering degree when I attempted to enroll him in college. We resented him as a family when he picked dance over designing.
“I was concerned he would fall when I saw him moving. However, he couldn’t stand it when individuals had sympathy for him. He would claim not to be disabled. I can’t believe that he has performed on international stages because of dance. I’m astounded about his prosperity.”
Motha, who now lives in London, showed bravery, according to his 47-year-old mother, when he spent three years at Kopanong Hospital in Vereeniging after being diagnosed with cancer.
The chemotherapy, according to her, was hectic for the young Motha.
She said the disease was recognized after Motha supported a physical issue while playing soccer.
“Musa adored soccer and he was great at it. They kicked him in the knee, swelling it to the point where it was larger than a human head. It was around then that they determined him to have malignant growth.
When I went to see him in the hospital, I used to cry because the people who were admitted with him were dying one by one. I had no idea how that would affect his mental state.
It was the most difficult time of my life, and I have no idea how I managed to endure the stress. The most difficult thing I had to do as a parent was to sign those consent forms for his amputation. Matale exclaimed, “I can’t believe that I have healed from that pain.”
Matale said that despite being three years behind in his studies, her son remained enthusiastic and motivated after the amputation.
I was concerned about his future. As a parent, you realize you brought forth an individual who had two legs and things needed to change. Musa was fine, so I wasn’t worried about how he would react to school treatment.
