Dflex the Most Flexible Man in Nigeria Brings Contortion Act to ‘AGT’ Stage
Backbends, handstands, and human jump rope? The most flexible man in Nigeria will be pulling out all the stops during his America’s Got Talent audition. Known by his stage name, Dflex, this master contortionist is ready to share his limb-bending talents with America. As a top ten finalist on Nigeria’s Got Talent, Dflex is no stranger to the big stage. How will far he get this time around?
Who is Dflex?
Born Oyindamola Kolawole Emmanuel, the Nigerian performer has began to turn a lot of heads (not as far as he can turn is own, I’m sure). He took the name Dflex as his stage persona to embody his skills of contortion. Aside from his unique talent, Dflex is also a certified yoga instructor. Seems like the perfect day job, if you ask me.
Dflex discovered his flexibility as a child on the playground. The first trick he can recall is being able to jump rope around his own interlocked hands. From then on, he found out he could do a whole lot more. His practically inhuman body transformations is captivating audiences, but also can be quite horrifying.
“Reactions at first were weird as it was a new kind of action but they are getting used to it now. They still get amazed when I do some things. My mum can’t stand watching me perform,” he said in a statement.
From Nigeria to the ‘AGT’ Stage
Dflex has participated in a number of performances originating in Nigeria and beyond. He was a notable finalist on Nigeria’s Got Talent and has also appeared in Circus Zyair in the U.K., Lagos State Count-down, and Big Brother Naija to name a few.
The performance artist has also worked with a number of Nigerian celebrities like Kaffy, Psquare, Phyno, and more. You can even catch him in Phyno’s music video for “Alobam.”
Dflex even headlined his own show last year entitled “Limberness,” to promote the act of contortion. A brilliant way to prepare for the America’s Got Talent audition.
Dflex says that his America’s Got Talent audition will be his most “memorable” moment to date. Tune in this week to see if Nigeria’s most flexible man gets through to the next round.
