According to the bible, the biblical Israelites are described figuratively as sheep and their Saviour as the Shepherd, the leader of the flock. They reared sheep (Genesis 46:30-34) and would have understood them quite well, including two characteristics perhaps peculiar to the breed of sheep that they reared and which are mentioned in Song of Songs of Solomon 4:2 and repeated in 6:4.
Song of Solomon 4:2. Your teeth are like a newly shorn flock of sheep which have come up from the washing, where every one of them has twins. None is barren among them.
The two characteristics are:
- All bear twins
- All are fertile and deliver offspring, none barren
Firstly, this means the biblical Israelites are all fertile and capable of bearing offspring. The only recorded exception of barrenness was the divine punishment meted out to Michal for mocking Daodu (re-lexified to “David”), for exposing himself while dancing when the Ark of the Covenant was being carried into his City (2 Samuel 6:14-23). This incident is proof of overall fertility in that population. Secondly, the birth of twins was common among them.
Previously, the Savioiur had told Abraham their progenitor that he would multiply him and make him fruitful (Genesis 22:15-18) but through his chosen seed, Isaac (Genesis 21:12). Isaac received the same promise (Genesis 26:3-4), begot a set of twins (Genesis 25:19-24), and one of them named Jacob was chosen (Genesis 28:10-14; 35:9-12; 48:2-4). It becomes obvious that the high fertility was the manifestation of the fulfillment of that promise.
Going further, it is recorded in the bible that Joseph, son of Jacob, received via his father the blessing of fruitfulness, growing into a multitude, and of the breasts and womb (Genesis 49:22-26). His two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, received the same blessing of growing into a multitude but Jacob added that Ephraim, whom he elevated from younger to elder and who later became the eldest among the twelve tribes, would be greater and more numerous (Genesis 48:8-20). Thus, Joseph’s sons would be the most fertile in Israel and Ephraim would be the more fertile over Manasseh. All these information are useful in identifying Jacob’s people today who have since been saved and led out of that region by the Saviour and are not missing – the lost tribes of Israel as the Amorites want the world to believe.
The melanin-deficient people of modern Israel who call themselves Jews have a low fertility rate – 76th out of 223 countries or 2.68 children born per woman – and the twinning frequency has been too insignificant to be noted.
There are others who also make such false claims and a typical example are the Igbo people, perhaps the most vocal of these false claimants, used to kill twins until the 20th century when Indo-European Christian missionaries succeeded in encouraging them to stop the practice.
However, the people with the world’s highest twinning rate are the Ẹgbẹ Ọmọ Oduduwa of West Africa – 45 to 50 per 1,000 births. Their source and spiritual centre is Ile-Ifẹ but Ọyọ, of the former Ọyọ Empire, which is one of the tribes has been claiming to be the political leader. German anthropologist Dierk Lange has identified the Ọyọ (also known as Yoruba) people as of the biblical northern kingdom of Israel, implying immediately that the biblical Judah (also rendered as Yĕhŭdă) is actually Ifẹ Oodaye, (“Oodaye” is short for “Owodaye”):
Owoda(ye) > Owoda > Yowoda > Yewuda > Yehuda > Judah.
Since Ephraim led the secession of the northern kingdom (1 Kings 11:26-12:33) to challenge the leadership of biblical Judah just like does Ọyọ till this day against Ifẹ, the people of Ephraim must be Ọyọ. In support of this assumption is the well known fact that the shibboleth speech marker of Ephraim (Judges 125-6) is present only in the dialect of an Ọyọ sub-group. It turns out that the part of Ọyọ with the highest twinning rate and known as the “Twin capital of the world” is Igbo-Ọra in the Ibarapa/Ibadan. Here, almost every household has at least one set of twins – 150 per 1,000 births. The consumption of yams has been suspected to contribute to the twinning.
Two scientists argued in a recent study for the consideration of the Republic of Benin as the new twin capital – 27.9 per 1,000 – and other black nations of West and Central Africa as having higher rates than Nigeria. They did not take into consideration the ethnic rates but lumped together various ethnic nationalities together according to the ignominious Berlin Conference borders. Hence, in Nigeria where Ifẹ Oodaye and most of Ọyọ are situated today, their combined twinning rate as an ethnic nationality would be an outlier – much higher – compared to the rates of the numerous other ethnic nationalities and the overall average for Nigeria, and the national average would be much lower than theirs. It should be noted that the Ẹgbẹ Ọmọ Oduduwa are also found in Benin, Togo, Sierra Leone, Ghana, etc. Nevertheless, black peoples display higher fertility, and birth and twinning rates than Indo-Europeans and Orientals.

Since Igbo-Ọra which is located in the Ibarapa/Ibadan region of Ọyọ has the highest twinning rate in the world and the shibboleth speech marker of biblical Ephraim who was blessed with the blessing of numerous offspring, it is likely that the Ephraim is actually Igbo-Ọra and both names are the same but rendered differently by the true people and the impostors. The name Igbo-Ora means “sacred grove of Ora” as Igbo means sacred grove in this context and Ọra (also spelled Ara) is the name of the fire-breathing deity also known as Jakuta.. The link between Ọra and Ephraim may not appear obvious but becomes so upon considering that Ọra is short for Ọranfẹ and that the name Ephraim was derived by the Jews and fellow Amorites via metathesis and re-lexification. Thus:
- Ọranfẹ > Ọra(n)fẹ > Ọrafẹ > Ẹfarọ > Ẹf(a)rọ > Ẹfrọ > Ẹphrọ > Ẹphrọim > Ephraim
- Aramfẹ > Ara(m)fẹ > Arafẹ > Ẹfara > Ẹf(a)ra > Ẹfra > Ẹphra > Ephraim
It is quite obvious from this comparison that the name Ephraim is fake while the original is Ọranfẹ (or Aramfẹ). More support can be derived from the name Re (or Ra) which Amorite Egyptologists say is borne by one of the deities venerated by the ancient Egyptians. This Re is also spelled Phra, from which can be seen the consonants -ph-r- or -f-r-, just as in Ọranfẹ and the biblical Ephraim. Clearly, the people of biblical Israel are really the Ẹgbẹ Ọmọ Oduduwa while the melanin-deficient people known as Jews are Amorites who are aptly described by the Saviour as the “Synagogue of Satan” (Revelations 2:9; 3:9).
Many Indo-Europeans have been supporting the fraud of these identity thieves and have flooded the world, including libraries and the academia, with lies. At least they do admit that they guess the translation of Ephraim’s people. An example is Ephraim which they have suggested means “double fruitfulness”. If the original rendition Ọranfẹ is used the meaning is easily known. Ọra/Ara means “phenomenon” or “electricity” and Ọranfẹ means “Ọra spreads” or Ọra multiplies” or “Ọra is fruitful” which is seen in the tremendous twinning and birth rates of his people, especially those of Igbo-Ọra.
Further support for the use of fertility and twinning as markers for the identification of Jacob’s people can be seen in the unique way the Ọmọ Oduduwa unique rank and name twins. The first to be born is named Taiwo or Taiye, a contraction of ‘Tọ aye wo’ meaning ‘the one to observe/taste the world first’, but is regarded as the younger. The second is named Kehinde meaning ‘the one who comes after’ and is regarded as the elder. The Ọmọ Oduduwa believe that Taiwo is born first to have a taste of the world and if found suitable announces so to Kehinde by crying, following which Kehinde is born. There are notable incidents in the bible of switching ranks likewise: the elevation of Ephraim over Manasseh (Genesis 48:12-20), Joseph over Reuben, the Saviour’s declaration that many who are first will be last and the last first (Matthew 19:30; 20:16), and the birth of Esau and Jacob as twins with the latter’s ascension to seniority by gaining Esau’s birthright (Genesis 26:29:34). Another recorded instance of twin birth in the bible that was somewhat odd is that of Perez and Zerah who were born to Judah, one of Jacob’s sons, and Tamar his daughter-in-law (Genesis 38). Zerah was coming out first and ought to have been the Taiwo but then withdrew and Perez came out first instead, hence the reaction of the midwife: ”How did you break through? This breach be upon you”. The possibility that Ephraim and Manasseh were twins, should be considered especially as the indication that such or not happened is absent from the Scriptures.
According to traditional accounts of early world history by the Ọmọ Oduduwa, the birth of twins used to be seen as a bad omen. Twins were killed and their mothers were ostracized. These changed when a certain Ajaka, son of Oduduwa, and his wife begot a set of twins, Ọranmiyan and Isẹdale (the Alado or Ruler/Owner of Edo) who, by divine instruction, were allowed to live.

Considering all these, we can also get the actual names of certain notable bible characters: Abraham is actually Oduduwa, Isaac is Ajaka, Jacob is Aku who is also known as Ọranmiyan, Esau is Isẹdale, Edom is Edo, Ajọsẹ is Joseph, David is Daodu whom Ọyọ remember as Aganju, and Solomon is Kori. The hatred and envy of the Igbo (spliced out of Edo) for the Ẹgbẹ Ọmọ Oduduwa is a continuation of that described in the bible (Obadiah; Ezekiel 25; 35) and perhaps symbolic of a hatred that perhaps existed since the beginning of time – Satan’s hatred for Eshu (short for Eshumare; written by the Indo-European impostors as Yeshu and Yeshua).
The Ọmọ Oduduwa have high regard for twins – their birth much celebrated and attracts lots of goodwill and prayers. They are regarded as sacred and thought to have their own Orisha (deity/deified ancestor) in heaven. Orisha is written by the Indo-European fraudsters as Harison-iym and translated as ‘ancestors’; ‘n’ is a re-lexification and –iym indicates plural (Ori- > Hari- and -sha > -so). Families with twins keep a pair of carved figures called Ibeji (Aku for twins or twin birth) in their homes and ensure to take care of such. These figures have added to the growing fame of Ọmọ Oduduwa culture worldwide.
