Abbla Unique is a Ghanaian Model and songstress with a condition of albinism; a congenital disorder characterized in humans by the complete or partial absence of pigment in the skin, hair and eyes.
It is not very common to see an Albino in Ghana trying to be in the limelight. There is a lot of stigma attached to the condition of albinism on the African continent generally, and only few people with the condition are able to live up to their full potentials due to societal misconception.
Abbla Unique is one of those few people who wouldn’t let her condition deter her from making a name for herself through her talents and rather considers her condition as a source of motivation and inspiration.
You might have probably seen her in the award winning video clip of RJZ titled “Bye Bye.”
