All humans have the ability to produce many different sounds with our vocal chords-- That's inherent in the ability to talk. Some languages tend to use some sounds more than others, and so speakers of those languages get more practice in making those sounds, which is what leads to accents. But all humans are capable of all of them, and some go out of their way to practice some sounds to be better at some accents.
