The family of DNA Twins, who got evicted from X Factor last week, has praised Globacom for offering the twins and other contestants a platform to showcase their talent to a global audience.
Mother of the 17-year-old twins, Mrs Becky Roberts, who spoke on behalf of the family, said that Glo had, through X Factor, enabled her children to sharpen their singing skills and gain vital experience that will help them in pursuit of their music career.
Mrs Roberts made the comments at a Homecoming reception held for the DNA Twins at the Ceedi Plaza, Abuja, on Saturday. “I am very proud of my boys. Although I would have wanted them to get to the final and, maybe, win the competition, I am happy that they made it this far. I knew they are hardworking boys and that they are good singers, but I did not imagine they would get this far in the competition. To have been picked for the Top 9 from the thousands of youths who auditioned for the show across West Africa is incredible. I thank God for that,” she stated.
“I am also grateful to Glo for making it possible. The experience and exposure that X Factor has given to the boys is fantastic. I believe that with the X Factor exposure, the sky will be their limit,” Mrs Roberts declared.
Popular music acts and Glo ambassadors, Bez and Burna Boy, who attended the reception, commended the twins for their good outing at the X Factor competition, and advised them to work relentlessly towards realizing their dreams.
The DNA Twins also expressed gratitude to Globacom for projecting them to national and international audience through X Factor. “We will use the experience and exposure to build on our musical dream. People should look out for us in the near future,” the duo said.
“We were disappointed that we have been evicted, but we believe everything happens for a purpose. We believe that God who brought us this far has a plan for us. For us, anything is possible now,” they added.
As the twins arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja, they were received by elated family members, friends and fans who accompanied them to Ceedi Plaza for the event.
The DNA Twins were the second act to leave the X Factor show after the exit of another group, the SmoothBoiz.
