While 2019 was not that great for Viggy and Virginia Qwabe, it seems 2020 promises to be a successful year for the twins. Viggy said they received invites to perform in the DRC and Ghana next month.
But she said they could not disclose the names of the shows or the dates yet.
“We’re excited about this because it shows we are no longer local artists, but international ones. This also shows we have fans all over the continent,” she said.
Virginia said they did not have a great year but they managed to pull through.
“We came out as conquerors and we’ve grown from all the challenges we faced.
“We’re still not ready to talk about things that happened in the Idols SA because that would open up old wounds.
“For now we’d rather focus on our journey going forward,” she said.
Virginia said they started their own recording label, Q-twins Entertainment.
“The idea is to record our own music and assist other young artists, but we are still learning the ropes.
“We also had mini-tours around the country, introducing our music to the people. We met amazing people such as DJ Tira, who took us under his wing,” said Virginia.
“He is taking us step by step in the industry and we’re grateful. He has invited us to perform at the Fact Durban Rocks event. This is a dream come true because we’ve always wanted to be part of this event.”
