At only 8 years old, Mabou Loiseau became a global sensation grabbing attention and making headlines for her rare ability to speak eight languages.
The child prodigy could speak English, Kreyol, Spanish, French, Russian, Arabic, Mandarin, American Sign Language and was learning Japanese.
According to blackhistory.com, when Mabou was barely two years old, her mother noticed that she was speaking some words in French, but her mom didn't even speak French.
Her mom immediately began to realise that her daughter had been born with a rare talent.
Mabou’s mother started teaching her different languages, and would even hire nannies that spoke different languages.
However, learning languages was not her only talent. Mabou also had already learnt to play a wide variety of instruments including the piano, the violin, the clarinet, the flute, the drums, the guitar and the harp.
And not only that, she began giving piano lessons. In addition, she was also studying and fully comprehending college-level algebra.
Currently 13 years old, Mabou Loiseau has added a few more talents to her list of gifts such as dancing, painting, and singing.
Mabou Loiseau is working tirelessly to become a lawyer, a brain surgeon and a singer.
In a related story, Nigerians have been making the news recently for their ingenuity, and a 19-year-old medicine and surgery student of the University of Nigeria has joined the list with her ability to speak Korean, Swahili, Shona, Filipino, Spanish, and Indonesian fluently without leaving the shores of Nigeria.
The disclosure was made by a Twitter user Maazi Ogbonnaya, who also said the teenager could write, teach and translate the aforementioned languages.
Nigerians took to the comment section of the tweet to express their surprise at the teenager's level of intelligence.
Others doubted the fact that she could speak those languages fluently, saying she may have taken basic courses in those foreign languages.
