- An emotional video of a twin sister ‘releasing’ her twin brother for marriage has caught the attention of netizens

Africans are known to have peculiar customs and traditions, and these traditions vary across the various tribes. This also applies to twins.
The Yoruba people in Nigeria have a customary ritual for twins when one of them wants to get married.
In a viral video, we see that ritual on display. The male twin was getting married and his twin sister was called out by the moderator to ‘release’ her brother.
This ‘release’ was to ensure that he got married without any tethering to the sister as he was being joined to another woman.
The twin sister at first squeezed her face and refused to release her twin brother. However, she was appeased by a friend and guests who obliged her to ‘release’ her brother.
She finally repeated after the moderator. She started with her name and subsequently said that she has released her brother (calling his full name and her pet names for him) to go and get married.
“I had to call her sister Kenny to calm her down. She did not want to release him at first but she finally released him”, the caption read.
