Renowned gospel musician Reuben Kigame has opened up on living with a disability, and the good part of it. 

Kigame is not bothered by the fact that he is blind, neither does he feel much disadvantaged.

"I laugh at myself, life is sweet, life is ok."

Speaking to Mpasho, Kigame said there are positive things about being a 'VIP', and he can only thank God for it.

Blindness, he said, prevents him from seeing many things that would otherwise bother him

"If you now frown at me, I won't notice. I will guess that you are frowning but it won't bother me. I handle audiences very easily because facial expressions don't really get to me. 

There are things that really bother an ordinary person, for example, bad images that are horrible to look at, for me, even if you show it, I won't see it. 

There are people who get corrupted by admiring things that they see. Those are things that being blind exempts you from.

It comes with limitations, but the balance lives someone like me advantaged," he shared.

Kigame, who is also a lecturer faulted the Kenyan government for doing less to support Persons Living with disabilities. 

As he contests for the 2022 presidential seat, Kigame hopes to put in place conducive environments for 'VIP's'.
