Kebbe was not born blind but had an accident that took his sight when he was 11 years old.
He said: “I am targeting to be a professor, Insha Allah."
Kebbe said he was playing with one of his brothers when he fell and hit his face, adding that he underwent many treatments afterwards but all to no avail.
He said: “I was playing with one of my brothers when a tree fell and hit my eyes. I underwent many treatments here and abroad; unfortunately, it was destined to be like this, and I accepted it."
Kebbe said before he met his wife, he was rejected by the families of the other women he intended to marry.
He said: “Before I met my wife, I had opposition from the families of the other women I wanted to marry. On one occasion, I even travelled to Niger State for the marriage issue, but in the end, the family rejected me.
"I went to Minna, Niger State, not knowing anybody, just because of that girl. But now, Alhamdulillah, I am getting the reward. I have no problem with my wife; she is very loving and caring.”
