Hope Finally Arrives For The Blind. The Magic Eyes Extra O Band has been inaugurated.
John 9:1-41 ESV -As he passed by, Jesus saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was not that this man sinned, or his parents, but that the works of God might be displayed in him. We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” Hope Finally Arrives For The Blind
It is therefore very clear that most of our blind people we see on the street and in the schools have no hand in whatever reason why they were born blind, though there are very few scattered unfortunate incidents that say otherwise.

Being blind is the most tragic misfortune that can befall any person on this earth because, in areas such as Africa or Ghana, it is almost a curse to be blind. The reason is simply that the situation can destroy your life entirely. If you are not fortunate to attend the school of the blind to enable you to learn a trade or secure a little lucrative job, then you are doomed as you might end up on the streets begging for alms.
In 2017, Benjamin S. Boateng, a teacher at the Akropong School Of The Blind, who pondered over it that it was worthless to train up talented blind musicians at the schools only for them to end up on the streets as beggars, approached a Ghanaian businessman and philanthropist Jeffery Quaye, based in Switzerland to discuss an idea that has become an organization capable of creating societally contributive opportunities for the blind in Ghanan.
The main objective of the concept is to help mobilize the blind who have ended up on the streets begging and give them something more contributing to society by way of supporting them through education and acquisition of lucrative trade. Eventually, the very first group of talented blind musicians we mobilized to form The Magic Eyes Extra O Band.
The band I hear had been practicing for over one years and would have already embarked on a European tour had it not been for the coronavirus invasion.
Finally the long awaited inauguration of The Magic Eyes Extra O Band took off on Saturday 21 November 200 at AAT Hotel,along Odorkor – Kasoa highway,near Bortiano junction.
I was there to witness the inauguration and I bet you, The Magic Eyes Extra O Band is something else. Their kind of musical instrument is a collection of professional masterpieces. Their harmonious blending voices are strong to not only send ‘chilling waves’ down your spine but also enough to make you shed tears.
The Magic Eyes Extra O Band will be touring Europe in 2022 before which they are expected to mobilize funds through performances to support orphanage homes and some more blind people who have been listed to be supported immensely.
