DNA is an upcoming music duo consisting of identical twins, Blair and Clinton Roberts. They were born on the 16th of June 1996 in Owerri, Imo state, Nigeria. DNA Twins are from a polygamous home with eleven other siblings. They attended Madonna Model Secondary School, Owerri, Imo state. They had a passion for music from a very young and tender age. DNA Twins were inspired musically by Micheal Jackson, Tiwa Savage, Usher, Psquare, Darey Art Alade, Wizkid, and Banky W while growing up. They liked to sing and dance along to their music. The twins also looked up to famous twin artistes, Osquar as they are also twins like them.
They derived their stage name ‘DNA’ from blood DNA which they say connects they both biologically and musically as not only blood connects them but also music.
DNA Twins Biography
DNA first came to be known after they auditioned for GLO X-factor competition which they did immediately after their senior secondary school examination in 2013. They tried their very best in the competition but unfortunately did not come out as the winners as they were the second duo to be evicted in the competition. A party was held for them after their eviction where popular acts, BEZ and Burna Boy praised them for their impressive performances in the competition, encouraging them to be persistent toward the pursuit of their dreams. They admitted that X-factor helped them musically as it helped them get better in their singing, stage movement, dancing, and psychological mindset.
Not allowing their not winning status in the X-factor competition deter them, DNA released their first single which they called ‘Mash-up Freestyle,’ a combination of freestyles of some top Nigerian music artistes songs such as ‘Your Waist’ by Iyanya and ‘Soundtrack’ by May D.
DNA also participated in The Voice 2016. They did not still come out as winners but got more fan base.
DNA Twins Kidnapped
Their fame also brought them a negative outcome as they were kidnapped in April 2016 on their way to Lagos from Abuja by armed men. The kidnappers first demanded six million Naira for their release but later moved it up to ten million Naira. Their parents called on their fans to help them save their children by donating to make up the sum for their ransom money. They were later released after some months, but it was never revealed if the ransom money was paid. Their senior brother, Quincy Roberts took to Twitter to announce their release.
DNA like most identical twins like wearing the same clothes with the only difference in the colors sometimes.
DNA was signed to Mavin Records, a music record label owned by Don Jazzy in February 2017. Don Jazzy was impressed by their music capacity.
As of now, DNA is one of the promising Nigerian acts as they continue to thrill the audience and their fans with their type of music. They both have high intentions and aspirations to be notable music acts in the years to come.
