According to @_tabitha_zeal_, they had to put water on the roof to create the artificial rain, adding that the water used was not ordinary.
“It’s not raining that fateful day they actually put the water on the roof by themselve ni and the water is not ordinary water.”
The baby’s mum picked up her kid
In the clip, a woman came out of the house with the newborn and was followed by the baby’s mum. She immediately placed the baby on the ground and went inside.
In a flash, the baby’s mum picked up her kid and also ventured inside. @_tabitha_zeal_ explained the last part involving the kid’s mum:
“…The last part they will drop the baby on the floor and the mother will come and carry him or her before the water finish dropping.”
Many netizens who watched the clip said it was a Yoruba tradition and was a local way of DNA testing called Ifalomo.
In the same light, Yoruba actress, Yetunde Bakare, had advised men to do DNA tests on their kids at birth.
A data analysis released by a Lagos-based DNA testing center put the number of Nigerian men not the real fathers of their kids at 26%.
