In the language of the Yoruba people, Ibeji means twin: IBI = born and EJI = two.

In earlier times, the birth of twins was a negative sign, accompanied by many superstitions, including the most tragical one, when people considered that such birth meant there were two fathers, revealing the mother’s adultery and resulting in the murder of the mother and her twins.
