Qwabe Twins are the two ‘identical’ ladies, Viggy and Virginia Qwabe who participated in the 2019 SA Idols, a singing competition.
Viggy and Virginia Qwabe were born in Stanger, Durban and most probably raised in a very religious environment since their father is the founder of the Pure Freedom Christ.
Given their background, it is very unsurprising that the twins first got their musical experience at an early age in church where they began singing and composing songs.
iReport South Africa has observed that the father Lawrence Qwabe sensationally alleged that South Africa’s biggest talent search, Idols was rigged following his decision to both girls out of the competition, Daily Sun, revealed.
We got the information through insiders who felt sorry for the twins, and also from those who see the counting process. This happened a few days before the Sunday round.
Idols is rigged and I advised Viggy to withdraw. I don’t want my girls to get hurt. They are back home in KZN. I came back with them and I’ve kept them in a safe place, away from everyone, including the media.
After the Qwabe twins left SA Idols, South Africa music superstar DJ Tira expressed interest in working with them and possibly sign them to his label Afrotainment. On 31 October DJ Tira revealed that the twins would appear in his video Woza Mshanami.
Following their much-publicised dramatic exit from the prestigious competition, the twins have already hit the ground running and have released a song which they collaborated with seasoned music producer DJ Tira. The song is titled ‘Hamba’ an Afro-pop song that is fused with a bit of amapiano sound. ( Watch live performance with Dj Tira)
