Yorubas believe that it is wrong for a pregnant woman not to attach safety pins to her clothes. That way, she is merely inviting spirits to possess her unborn child.

The safety pin (like the name goes), sort of protects the foetus and keep it safe from the spirit roaming about.

 

A person who plays with an umbrella when it isn’t raining is only inviting a non-stop rain on his/her wedding day.

 

When you whistle at night, you’re simply calling on snakes and other reptiles into the house.

 

If you want white fingers, all you need to do is sing a song calling on egrets (leke leke) to give you white fingers.

 

As believed by the Yorubas, when a pregnant woman walks under the sun (especially around 1 pm), she’ll give birth to a disfigured child. So, pregnant women are advised to stay away from the sun.
