In regards to having albinism, Xaba states: “I made it a point not to label myself as Sanele the albino model. I want to be seen as a model of a different shade not just a model with no pigmentation. I don’t want to be perceived as suffering from a condition or a tragedy or have a pity party for me.” He adds that he wants to pave the way “not just for albino models but for models that are different.” Explore below.
