Fair and attractive Nollywood actress, Mabel Abel, also known as Bella Ebinum, never celebrated her birthday as a youngster.
In fact, unlike her peers in the profession, the Delta State-born script interpreter does not value birthday parties.
“I see every birthday as a reminder that I am favored and blessed because not all my mates make it to their next birthday date. Although I am not particular about birthdays because of my upbringing; growing up as a Jehovah Witness, my parents never attached any importance to birthdays. I never celebrated my birthday for once when growing up. But as I grow older, I learned to appreciate the importance of birthday. To be alive to see another year is not an easy achievement. So each birthday gives me hope and fulfillment that God loves and cares for me. In as much that I do not attach importance to birthdays, one way or the other I just try to make people around me happy even if do not do it in a grand style I just make sure that day I put a smile on people faces,” she told Saturday Sun.

Bella Ebinum didn’t let her stern parents stop her from pursuing her dream of being a movie star.
“They never saw it coming because I went for NYSC, so they didn’t know what else I was doing,” she explained, adding, “They never saw it coming because I went for NYSC, so they didn’t know what else I was doing.” They don’t have time for social media because they are Jehovah Witnesses. They only found out when a friend of my father’s in the United States called to inform him that he had just watched my movie on YouTube and was really proud of me. That’s how they found out, and they later came out in favor of me.”
