A veteran Nollywood actor, Adewale Adeoye, popularly known as Elesho, shared a story his mother told him regarding his albinism.

According to the popular actor, his mother was worried that people could accuse her of infidelity because she worked closely with some Lebanese.

“My birth, too, was a little difficult. My late mother said the day I was born was a day of sorrow for her because she was a dark-complexioned trainer who sold breakable plates that were being supplied to her by the Lebanese. So when I was born in a hospital in Ibadan, my mother wept for the suspicion that might arise that she had had something with one of the Lebanese.

“But when my dad came, my mother said he carried me and started jubilating because I look like his grandmother,” he narrated.

Elesho added that he gained popularity from childbirth because he was born an albino.

Adeoye, who is known for his humorous roles in Yoruba movies, said it was not popular to give birth to an albino in those days because his parents had a different complexion from him.

He said, “I became popular since my birth. The news got everywhere that a white man was born. Some will scold their wards for coming to our house because they had given birth to an albino. Some will even wonder if I’m Chinese. Many people come to look at me out of curiosity.”
