David Uzochukwu’s Work Captures A Spark To Nigerian Creative Space In ‘Pluton’

David Uzochukwu’s Work Captures A Spark To Nigerian Creative Space In ‘Pluton’

NIGERIA, Igbo-Ora, October 2018.

Twin pose for the photographers next to their home in the old city of Igbo-Ora. 

Igbo-Ora, the self proclaimed 'Twin Capital of the World' has earned its nickname by the unusually large number of twin births in the region. Research has suggested that the multiple births could be related to the (over)consumption of local crops by the women in the region of Igbo Ora. Although no direct relation between dietary intake and twin births has been proved, a research study carried out by the University of Lagos Teaching Hospital has suggested that a chemical found in Igbo-Ora women and the peelings of a widely consumed tuber (yams) could be causing twins births. Another possible explanation is genetics.
