Deaf man from Kenya wins international beauty contest
36-year-old Calvin Vogefu Musalia has created history by winning the Mr Deaf International 2016 title at a beauty contest held in the US.
Calvin beat 25 participants from all over the world to win the title. He had won the Mr Deaf Kenya title in 2013.
He wanted to participate in the international beauty pageant for the last three years but could not due to lack of funds and continued his work in cultural dancing and sign language poetry.
He now wants to create awareness about the rights of the deaf and the use of sign language and aims to ensure that the deaf in Kenya are independent and all public services have an interpreter for the deaf.
