Explore the “Twin Capital of the World” Igbo-Ora in Oyo State on BN TV

Published

BattaBox presenters Odunayo and Kayode took a trip to Igbo-Ora, Oyo state, where there is an unusually large number of twin births. This has made the town to be nicknamed ‘Twin Capital of the World’.

Before filming or speaking to anyone, Odunayo went to pay homage to the Baale of the land and ask for permission and blessings according to how it is done in Yoruba land.

This exceptional large number of twin births has also been observed in the town of Kodinji in India and Cândido Godói in Brazil.

In Igbo-Ora, research has suggested that the multiple births could be related to the eating habits of the women in the region of the country.

    So true! An in-law lived there briefly and had twines. These are people with no history of twins in both spouses” lineages.
