Early Life and Education
The DNA twins, who were born on June 16th, 1996, came from a polygamous family with 11 other siblings. The DNA twins’ real names are Blair and Clinton Roberts, and they were born and raised in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria.
They attended Madonna Model Secondary School in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria for their secondary education.
They developed a deep love for music from a very young age. Growing up, the musical influencers of the DNA Twins were Michael Jackson, Tiwa Savage, Usher, Psquare, Darey Art Alade, Wizkid, and Banky W. They enjoyed singing and dancing to their music. The twins also looked up to Psquare, a pair of well-known twin performers, since they are identical twins.
They first gained attention in early 2013, soon after graduating from high school, when they competed in the Glo X-Factor competition. Following SmoothBoiz’s elimination from the competition, the DNA twins became the next group to be eliminated. After their eviction, a reception was organised for them whereby well-known performers like BEZ and Burna Boy thanked them for their outstanding competition performances and inspired them to persevere in the pursuit of their aspirations. They acknowledged that the X-factor had improved their musical abilities as well as their stage presence, dancing, and mental attitude.
They released their debut single, “Mash-Up Freestyle,” following their removal from the X-Factor.
Top Nigerian songs like May D’s “Soundtrack” and Iyanya’s “Your Waist” were combined to create their first single. The DNA Twins have collaborated with DMW Mayorkun on songs like “How Can” and “Adanma” and are currently signed to Don Jazzy’s MAVIN label. The DNA twins contributed to the song “All Is In Order” together with Don Jazzy, Rema, Korede Bello, and Crayon.
“Arabanko” is the name of one of their most recent songs. Aside from doing music, they are also TV presenters.
They explain that because music also binds them together biologically and musically, they got their stage name, “DNA,” from blood DNA. Most identical twins, like DNA, enjoy dressing alike, with occasionally just a difference in hue.
In April 2016, while travelling from Abuja to Lagos, they were abducted by armed men as a result of their fame. The initial demand for their release was six million naira, but it was later increased to 10 million naira. Their parents asked their followers to donate to cover the cost of their ransom in order to save their kids. After a few months, they were eventually freed, but it was never made known whether the ransom was paid. Quincy Roberts, their elder brother, tweeted about their release.
