The Nigerian Town Nicknamed ‘Twin Capital Of The World’ Because It Has The Highest Number Of Twins(pics)


West Africa has the highest occurrence of twins in the world. One town in particular, has a twin birth rate so high that the town was nicknamed the Twin Capital of the World.


1. Percentage wise, there are about 30 times more twins in that town than there are in Europe

According to a BBC article, there are about 158 twins per 1000 newborns in Twin Capital of the World, compared to 5 twins per 1000 newborns in Europe.

2. People attribute the predominance of twins to a meal

3. Twins are regarded as special creatures

Twins are taken care of in a special way: they wear the same clothes and have a shrine built for them in their living room.
