South Africa’s Musa Motha

Diagnosed with cancer at a young age, Britain’s Got Talent finalist Musa Motha had his left leg amputated.

While it stifled his dreams of becoming a professional footballer, he found music and learned to dance with the assistance of his crutches.

“After my amputation, I fell in love with music. My friends were dancing at that time, and I asked them to teach me how to dance,” Motha told the judges.
