In Bujumbura, Burundi, spectators were stunned when brothers Joseph and Douglas Mayanja exchanged lips during Chameleone’s stage performance.( Weasal and Chameleone kiss on stage in Burundi once more)
Weasal and Chameleone flew into Burundi for a concert at Van Beach Hotel over the weekend. The two brothers shared a kiss during Chameleone’s session and afterwards posted the photo with the caption “Forever and Ever.”
Lip-on-lip kissing is not as common as people believe, according to BBC Future. However, the diverse approaches to this intimate act demonstrate what many individuals value. Almost half of the world’s population kisses with their lips, according to a study conducted on 168 cultures around the world.
Except for parent-child greetings and kissing, just 45 percent of people kiss for romantic reasons, according to an anthropology professor at the University of Nevada.
“Two explanations for why humans have a strong desire to kiss arise from the belief that we have an inbuilt preference for lip touching as neonates. It’s possible that we equate lip contact with breastfeeding, and that this reflex is present in everyone.”
There’s also a theory that “premastication food transfer” helps moms and children bond via lip-to-lip kissing. Our ancient ancestors’ mothers may have pre-chewed our food and deposited it directly into our mouths when we were little. “However, I believe the secret to the human universal of kissing, or the lack thereof, is that people’s sensuality can be met in a variety of ways other than kissing,” says Professor Jankowiak.
