Qwabe twins split

The Qwabe twins, known for their exceptional vocal skills and harmonious music, have decided to part ways in their music careers. Virginia and Viggy Qwabe gained popularity after participating in the “Idols South Africa” singing competition in 2019. They were managed by DJ Tira and were known for their Maskandi music style, popular in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province.

The reason for their split was a disagreement over the direction of their music. Virginia and Viggy couldn’t agree on whether to continue making Maskandi music or explore other genres. This disagreement escalated into a heated argument, leading to their separation.

Money sharing was also mentioned as a factor contributing to the split. It is not uncommon for artists to separate due to creative differences, as seen in the case of Pink Floyd and their lead singer, Roger Waters.

The Qwabe Twins, born in Insinga-Kwadukuza, KwaZulu-Natal in 1997, rose to fame after their appearance on “South African Idol.” Though they didn’t win the competition, their talent caught the attention of DJ Tira. Viggy is older than Virginia by a few seconds and is known by the nickname “Manana,” while Virginia is called “Thaa.”
