Ever Wondered why Igbo-Ora is Called the “Twin Capital of the World”? Find out on BN TV

Published

 on

We brought you the first part of Battabox’ trip to Igbo-Ora with Odunayo and Kayode and now the second part is here.

They went on a journey to Igbo-Ora in Oyo state, where there are unusually large number of twin births in Nigeria, thus earning the town a moniker as the ‘Twin Capital of the World’.

When some of the women were asked why they think they were able to bear twins, some said, “It’s the food we eat that makes us have twins” while others believe, “I don’t believe it, twins come from God”.

Watch it here:

    Interesting program, shame there was no visit to the birth records to see generations of twins lined up and also official statistics lined up as to how many twin births per household, figures for local population etc. I like how the fulani lady put a postulation of environmental factors as a cause, whatever it is causing multiple ovulation. Also interesting the way twin to twin transfusion is interpreted as ‘violent’ twin pregnancy! This documentary needs like 1-2 hours!! With proper infrastructure more research because of morbidity and mortality associated with twin births and how igbo-ora compares especially with poor health care

    God knows I have been praying for twins/triplets since I could tell what pregnancy is.. I recalled that song when I was way back in middle school & I still sing it every now & then 🙂
