There is a 1 in 500 chance of having twins with different coloring.
Even though the odds of having twins with different colored skin, eyes, and hair are slim, it’s not impossible. But still, seeing your babies for the first time bearing different colored features must come as quite a surprise.
In fact, when Judith Nwokocha (their mom) gave birth in 2016, she said she was shocked: “I remember thinking the nurse handed me the wrong baby. Lol.” Well, no one can blame her.
Kachi has a rare case of albinism.
Kachi has oculocutaneous albinism (OCA) type 2, which is an inherited condition where people do not produce sufficient melanin (pigment) and this affects their appearance, mainly in the eyes, skin, and hair.
One in every 4 children has the chance of being affected when both parents are carriers of the albinism gene.
Even though she has albinism, Kachi is perfectly healthy.
Despite her albinism, other than her skin being more sensitive to the sun and having to wear glasses due to her slightly poorer eyesight, Kachi is perfectly healthy.
Originally from Nigeria, Judith works as a photographer in Canada and snaps plenty of photos of Kamsi and Kachi’s everyday adventures.
Kachi and Kamsi are becoming the best of friends.
It’s natural to assume that people have a tough time believing that Kachi and Kamsi are twins. But even though Kachi turns a few heads on the street, Judith hasn’t let that put her down. In fact, one of the reasons why she takes so many pictures of Kachi and Kamsi is because she wants to prove to her daughter just how beautiful she is.
Judith publicly speaks about how blessed she feels to have these 2 wonderful children, and she says that even though they look very different, in many ways they are very alike, and their bond grows stronger by the day.
The story of Kachi and Kamsi is a true testament to the saying that what makes you different makes you unique. The twins are now 4 years old and their connection grows stronger with each passing day.
