How Being Albino Made Me Well-liked From The Start, Claims Adewale Elesho

The seasoned actor Elesho, also known as Adewale Adeoye, has talked about the amazing circumstances of his birth, which propelled him to stardom right away.

Elesho’s peculiarity—being born an albino to parents with dark skin generated surprise and intrigue in his town, drawing many people to see the “white man” born of African parents.

Elesho stated that, in spite of early difficulties, his father rejoiced his birth and gave him the insight and with that have made him a well-liked comedic performer in an interview with media personality Adedoyin Kukoyi.

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.

“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 stressed.

“I can say it was from my father’s character that I inherited the ability to talk. My father was an embodiment of happiness. He was always happy. When the chief is greeted at that time: May the chief live long, he would respond: May the natives not get sick too. He always has a reply to everything said to him.

“I am not the first entertainer from Ikirun. It was God that gave me the wisdom to speak the way I do,” he added.

The actor’s son, Yemi Elesho, has followed in his footsteps, becoming a popular comedian, actor, and Instagram skit maker known for his hilarious roles.
