Elderly woman wows many with her drumming skill
Legit.ng previously reported that an elderly woman in a Nigerian church gave people on social media much to talk about as she showed off her dexterity on a drum set.
Dressed in ankara with headgear on, the woman handled the drum stick like a professional in a video shared by @famousblogng. She must have been drumming for years.
A man stood in front of the woman, capturing the moment on his phone. An unseen person sang on as an accompaniment to the woman's performance with the drum set.
Other instrumentalists also backed her up to make for a sterling performance.
