A Nigerian couple named Angela and Ben Ihegboro once resided in London. They already had two children when they were about to give birth to their daughter, and they had no idea that their new arrival would captivate the hearts of millions of people and astound medical professionals.
They do identify a few things as potential causes, though. One of them is that if Nmachi has children when she is older, they will probably look exactly like her because of a genetic abnormality that caused her appearance. The second explanation could be the recently discovered existence of long-dormant white genes in her parents’ ancestors. The third factor, even though Nmachi doesn’t resemble an albino youngster at all, could be a modified version of albinism.
In any case, she doesn’t resemble an albino youngster. Not like the ones I have seen in books or my own Nigeria. As her father Ben puts it, “She just looks like a healthy white baby.”
