Tanzanian’s Ramadhani Brothers have emerged victorious in the inaugural season of America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League. Fadhili Ramadhani, 36, and Ibrahim Jobu, 26, surpassed nine others with their gravity-defying head-balancing acts to win the trophy and a prize money of $250,000.

The Ramadhani Brothers’ mentor, judge Howie Mandel, noted that their routine was “probably one of the most terrifying acts in [AGT] history”.

Reflecting on their victory in the spin-off show, America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League, Ramadhani expressed joy that “our lives are changing from this moment.”

“This victory means a lot to us. We are extremely happy.” Jobu noted that they plan to utilize the money to upgrade their equipment and enhance their training center in Tanzania.

According to him, they aim to support fellow acrobats in their community, purchase land to build their homes, and continue their success.

The duo are the first to headline a show on the iconic Las Vegas Strip in the U.S. They captivated audiences and impressed judges with their stunning acts of balancing the other’s body weight on one’s head while navigating different sets, according to the BBC.

During the final performance, one of the brothers skillfully climbed up and down a set of ladders while balancing his sibling on his head. They followed this with another impressive act, where one brother, blindfolded, ascended a tall ladder while maintaining balance with his brother atop his head.

Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu Hassan extended her congratulations to the brothers on X, saying in Swahili “Your journey continues to show that effort, discipline, dedication, and self-confidence are important pillars to achieve success. You promote our country well and set a good example for others.”

The Ramadhani Brothers have showcased their skills on various “Got Talent” platforms worldwide, including Australia, Spain, and Romania.

Ramadhani and Jobu, finalists in the 2023 AGT competition, were narrowly defeated by Adrian Stoica and his dog Hurricane.

Their coach, Winston Ruddle, a Zimbabwean, established an acrobatic school in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and leads the renowned international troupe, Cirque Mama Africa.
