Fast-rising singer, Adelaide The Seer, known in real life as Adelaide Bortier, is making commendable waves in the entertainment scene despite being visually impaired.
Born with functioning eyes, Adelaide Bortier lost her sight while in her final year (Form 4) in Ghanata Senior High School after she suffered a condition called cerebrospinal meningitis.
The severe condition compelled her to put her studies on hold and to focus on her recovery.
Adelaide Bortier has risen above her physical impediment and is pursuing a career in music, with two songs to her credit as Adelaide The Seer.
Speaking about when she lost her sight in an interview with Nana Ama McBrown on United Showbiz, she revealed she lost her sight on October 16, 2012.
Despite the cycles of adversity, Adelaide The Seer, 25, is reaching the stars as a singer with her music career taking great shape.
Ghanaian musical duo of identical twin brothers, Dope Nation, recently featured the budding singer on their song titled Wire Me to help her realise her music career.
Adelaide The Seer detailed the difficulties she experienced then, explaining she lost her memory as a result of the condition.
"I was in a coma for 4 days. After I lost my sight, I was becoming paralysed and after I recovered from the coma, I realised I was completely paralysed. So, I went through physiotherapy to enable me to walk again," Adelaide said.
