DNA Twins Biography: Inside The Life Of The Nigerian Musicians

Blair and Clinton Roberts, also known as the DNA Twins, are artists and TV hosts. They are two brothers that perform as part of a musical group. They rose to prominence after entering the Glo X-factor competition in early 2013. The brothers are signed to Mavin Records, which is run by the legendary Don Jazzy.

Early Life and Education

The DNA twins were born on June 16, 1996, into a polygamous family that included 11 other siblings. Blair and Clinton Roberts, the DNA twins’ real identities, were born and raised in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria.

They completed their secondary education at Madonna Model Secondary School in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria.


From a young age, they developed a strong passion for music. Growing up, the DNA Twins were influenced by Michael Jackson, Tiwa Savage, Usher, Psquare, Darey Art Alade, Wizkid, and Banky W. They had a good time singing and dancing to their music. Because they are identical twins, the twins looked up to Psquare, a pair of well-known twin performers.

When they entered in the Glo X-Factor competition in early 2013, shortly after graduating from high school, they first attracted notoriety. Following the elimination of SmoothBoiz, the DNA twins were the second group to be eliminated. Following their eviction, a reception was held for them, at which well-known performers such as BEZ and Burna Boy thanked them for their outstanding competition performances and inspired them to continue pursuing their dreams. They admitted that participating in X-Factor had improved their musical abilities as well as their stage presence, dancing, and mental attitude.

Following their elimination from X-Factor, they released their debut single, “Mash-Up Freestyle.”

Top Nigerian tunes such as “Soundtrack” by May D and “Your Waist” by Iyanya were blended to make their first single. The DNA Twins have worked with DMW Mayorkun on songs such as “How Can” and “Adanma,” and are signed to Don Jazzy’s MAVIN label. Together with Don Jazzy, Rema, Korede Bello, and Crayon, the DNA twins contributed to the song “All Is In Order.”


One of their most recent songs is called “Arabanko.” They are not only musicians, but also TV hosts.

Personal Life 

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.

Kidnap Experience

As a result of their celebrity, they were kidnapped by armed men in April 2016 while traveling from Abuja to Lagos. The demand for their release was first set at six million naira, but it was then upped to ten million naira. Their parents asked their followers to donate to pay the ransom in order to save their children. They were eventually released after a few months, but it was never revealed whether the ransom was paid. Their elder brother, Quincy Roberts, tweeted about their release.
