- The song is focused around the dispute between the twins' management and DJ Tira
Former Idols SA contestants, Viggy and Virginia Qwabe, took to social media to announce that they are planning to release a collab with DJ Tira next week.
According to TshisaLIVE, the track, which is titled, Hamba, will no doubt be a Dezemba dance floor filler. Virginia shared the news on Instagram on Tuesday by sharing the twins' Instagram fan account.
Virginia captioned her Instagram post: "@official.qwabetwins "
The song is believed to focus on the dispute between the twins’ management and DJ Tira.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the Afrotainment boss, DJ Tira, took the twins under his wing after they left Idols SA last month. He took them to gigs and even recorded a few songs with them.
However, the twins’ manager, Kim Coppen, revealed that the twins had to approach their current agents, Think Entertainment, to negotiate their release if they wanted Tira to represent them.
Gallo Records also told TshisaLIVE in a statement that the twins were still under contract with them and they had reached out to Tira to discuss the upcoming collab.
“We have contacted DJ Tira outlining our position that the twins are already signed and that Gallo would be open to having a discussion with them on the way forward. We have not yet had a response. The twins have also been in touch with Gallo to discuss this or for further clarity about the recording contracts they have already signed,” said Gallo Records’ Rob Cowling.
But according to the Daily Sun, Tira said he was just helping the Qwabe twins and the recording with them did not mean he wanted to sign to manage them.
“I’m merely assisting them to kick-start their music careers. I wouldn’t want to see local talent going to waste. I took them to AKA’s event for a public appearance. They did that for free and their fans were happy to see them.”
About a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Viggy and Virginia Qwabe were huge favourites with viewers of Idols SA and since their controversial exit from the competition, they've made many headlines.
There was a lot of upset after the singing sisters left the show, but they've seemingly put that behind them, even after their father accused the show of being rigged.
SowetanLIVE reported that the twins had turned down an invitation extended to them to attend the show's finale on 17 November at the State Theatre in Pretoria. They refused to go.
