His “Defect” Might Make Heads Turn, But My Jaw Dropped When I Saw His Talent.

Otu was born with what most would refer to as a birth defect… but he doesn’t see it that way. Instead, Otu refers to his deformed left hand as a birth enhancement.


The claw-like appearance of his hand is misleading in the way that you might guess it’s not very useful. But that’s not the case.

Guitar, melodic and percussion guitar, video game design, digital drawing – these are just some of the arts Otu has crafted ridiculous talents for!

Watching him is such an inspiration. It reminds us that with whatever life hands you, it’s up to you to make the best of it.
