The Nigerian twins who have two different skin colours have spoken about the attention they received since their photos trended on social media.

My mother never liked albino
The albino of the twins is called Taiwo, while the dark-skinned one is named Kehinde. Taiwo revealed that when their mother was told that she would be having twins, she fainted.

Another twins with different complexions
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that when Jennifer Milner welcomed her twin boys, Jakob and Joshua, in March 2020, doctors and nurses trooped in to catch a glimpse of the rare genetic marvel.
She had given birth to twins with different skin complexions, and the over 20 health workers who visited the delivery room simply wanted to admire the babies.
Jakob was born with blond hair, blue eyes, and a pale complexion, like his white dad, while Joshua came out with brown hair, brown eyes, and brown skin, like his black mum.
