Identical twins belonging to one mother are black and white in skin tone

The pair of twins, Daniel and David, who were delivered in Nigeria last year, are incredibly exceptional. Although every child is unique in their own way, this duo stands out among the crowd. They quickly gained a large following on Instagram. While David is an albino, Daniel, his twin brother, was born with a dark complexion and dark hair. The remarkable contrast between the twins easily catches people’s attention.


Despite being born just minutes apart, brothers Daniel and David look very different from each other, except for their large brown eyes. One of the babies was born with albinism, even though both parents, Stacy and Babajide, who reside in Lagos, are black. Hence, the lovely twins attract attention whenever they are out in public. David has a golden hair and a striking white complexion, whereas Daniel has a dark, wavy black hair, similar to his 5-year-old older sister, Demilade.

Within a year since Stacy shared the twins’ unique story on Instagram, the duo has amassed nearly 18k followers. The twins were born on February 26th of last year, which was astonishing for everyone. The most surprising moment was when the first twin (Daniel) came out with black hair, and the second twin (David) came out with golden hair. The parents did not know about their differences during pregnancy, so it was a big surprise.

The father was so overwhelmed that he immediately gave David the nickname “Golden,” and he now refers to him as Mr. Golden. He was delighted to meet his boys and stayed there for over ten minutes, admiring God’s beautiful creation, saying they were his greatest gift ever. David has albinism, which makes him one of every 20,000 people in the world to have this genetic disorder.

Albinism is an inherited genetic disorder caused by a deficiency in melanin, the pigment that gives color to skin, hair, and eyes. It can have varying levels of pigmentation and affect individuals of all ethnic and racial backgrounds, with a likelihood of between 1 in 3,000 and 1 in 20,000. It can cause skin and vision issues, so albinos must take precautions.

David has beautiful golden hair and a light complexion due to ocular cutaneous albinism. Fortunately, according to Stacy, David has no health problems. Nigeria has one of the world’s highest rates of albinism, with an estimated 2 million or more albinos living there. However, this group still experiences severe prejudice due to their different skin tone. Statistics show that over 600,000 albino Nigerians suffer from discrimination and bullying from their families, classmates, and peers, often leading to destitution and limited access to education. Nevertheless, Stacy claimed that she had never heard any negative comments and that both sons were equally loved unconditionally.
