Crystal Asige is the female artiste signed to Sol Generation, the record label linked to Sauti Sol.

The day is set aside to mark and celebrate the achievements of blind and visually impaired people, and also to champion the universally recognised symbol of blindness and tool of independence, the humble white cane.

Crystal developed eye complications while in high school and the difficulty in reading only became worse.

She told SDE

Just before I finished High School when I was like 15 or 16 years, I started noticing that something was wrong with my eyesight. I wasn’t able to read my scripts, see the blackboard properly, I had to bring my scripts really close to my eyes to be able to see; sometimes when I played sports, the ball could be thrown at me and all I could see were just some black spots.

“However, I just pegged it on the fact that both my parents wore glasses and I needed to get a pair for myself. I didn’t pay much attention to it, got my glasses and everything turned out well,” she states.

She began her journey with surgeries in 2010 that resulted in 8 surgeries

Since that first surgery I kept chasing my eyesight and in the next 6 years I had additional seven surgeries, trying to regain my eyesight but they didn’t help,”

She explains why for blind people, the cane is essential.

 

Other visually impaired artistes we know are Stevie Wonder continues to perform and record for the label to this day. It is thought that he received excessive oxygen in his incubator which led to retinopathy of prematurity.
