In the Yoruba culture, twins (Ibeji) are believed to bestow happiness,health and prosperity upon their family. Their upbringing is therefore far more permissive than that of other children.The first born twin, is always called Taiwo, meaning ‘having the first taste of the world’, whereas the second is named Kehinde, meaning ‘arriving after the other’. Although being born first Taiwo is considered as the younger twin. The senior Kehinde sends out Taiwo to see what the outside world looks like. As soon as Taiwo has given a signal by crying, Kehinde will follow.Kehinde is believed to be more careful, more intelligent and more reflective, while Taiwo is believed to be more curious and adventurous.

Ere Ibeji: from “Ibi” = born and ‘eji’ = two; ‘ere' means sacred image)In earlier times, new-born twins, or ibeji, as they are called, were believed to be evil, monstrous abnormalities and infanticide was a common practice among the Igbos. However, such beliefs and practices were later superseded and reversed, and by the middle of the 18th century twins came to be seen as a blessing; they were awarded the status of minor deities, called Orishas, and their arrival was viewed as an omen of good fortune for the family.By the 19th century the cult of the Ere Ibeji was firmly established and continues to this day. The death of one or both twins is regarded as a great calamity for the family, one which requires immediate appeasement of the soul of the deceased child. Read MoreVintage Nigeria
