- A woman has amazed many after sharing photos of her late brother and her new baby who have a striking resemblance
- Many people who believe in unproven reincarnation stories shared similar experiences
- There were, however, those who said it could just be a case of strong genes and nothing more
A young mother on Tuesday, February 23, took to Twitter to share photos of her newborn and that of her brother who died nine years ago.
In the post, the woman showed there is a glaring resemblance between both of them as babies.
Many tweeps who saw the resemblance tried to make a strong case for reincarnation, saying there have been instances where loved ones come back to their families as another member.
While reincarnation is not scientifically proven, it is interesting to note how the photos explored the human condition and stories around losing love, regaining it, and the strong sense of community in black societies.

As at the time of writing this report, her tweet has gathered over 138,000 likes with about 9,000 retweets.

"REINCARNATION is real, my mom gave birth to my brother same day we lost my dad's brother in a terrible accident, he got injured on the neck and my brother came exactly same time he gave up the ghost with his neck bent too..till now he talks exactly."
"If we can have identical twins, I really don't understand why one with similar look can't resurface.. it has nothing to do with if you believe there's heaven and hell or not.. of what use is coming back with different personality, brains, same face but different purpose??"
"Hoping my sister comes back to me this way."
"Could be reincarnation or strong family genes, I look exactly like my dad’s elder sister, she’s still very much alive and even my mum always says if she had not carried and birth me herself she would have believed the woman was my mother."
