That the twin bond is strong is something that the twin sisters, Amina and Jazz, are true testaments of. Although they live on two different continents, they still find ways to push each other and work together. You may know them from their music career or from their fitness journey, regardless we can't wait for you to get to know them better in this interview.
From this interview, you will learn about the twin sisters' impressive journey, their favorite twin moment and what they think everyone should know about twins. Enjoy!
1. Who are you and what do you do?
We are identical twins born and raised in Germany (German mother/African Father). We've always been all about music since very early on in our childhood and formed a band as teenagers together with our 3rd sister.
Then, later on, moved to the USA to pursue our music career. We landed a few record deals and worked/toured all over the USA under the name "Black Buddafly" for years. Today we're also both mothers and are very much into fitness and healthy living.
2. How did you get started?
Well, as far as the music we feel like we never really "got started" It has always been our destiny and it feels like we've always been doing this. It just got more serious over the years. Like when we got signed to a couple of the biggest record labels (DefJam) and later (J Records).
Things just had to work out for us. We had no Plan B. And we had bills to pay, so we made it happen. But our fitness journey started after we became mothers. Simply because we wanted to feel good at first and of course show other women that just because you become a mother that doesn't mean that you have to let yourself go. #teamfitmoms :)
3. Do you see being a twin as a strength or weakness in getting to where you are today?
ABSOLUTELY a strength!!! Safia says: I can only talk about myself but living on two different continents has been the hardest thing I've ever had to deal with. I believe we're supposed to be together and can achieve so much more as a unit.
Unfortunately, circumstances have put us where we are but I try to go see my twin as much as I can. Whenever/wherever we show up together it's a whole different reaction people give us. We're so much more powerful TOGETHER. And yes it definitely helped us on our way to get to where we are...
4. What's your favorite twin moment?
Anytime we were on a stage together...
5. What's your first memory of being twins?
Guess being kids..always having someone like me around..never alone.. :)
6. When you argue, how long does it take for you to become friends?
We barely ever argue. Because we understand each other without words.
7. What do you think everyone should know about being twins?
We may look the same but we are not exactly the same so don't treat us as such..
Our rapid-fire questions:
Who is the bossiest? AMINA!!!
Who is the messiest? Safia
Who is most active on social media? Amina!
Who is the more shy twin? Safia
Who is the more adventurous twin? Both

Thanks, Amina & Jazz. You guys rock <3 We love how you find ways to work together. Also love that you remind us that no distance can beat the twin bond. You guys are awesome!
Twinning Store was established by twin sisters K&E in July 2017 in Los Angeles, California.
Life is too short to not celebrate being a twin. So why not flaunt it? When we couldn't find a way to do so we took matters in own hands and created Twinning Store. We now sell and ship clothing, accessories and gifts to twins and twin parents in over 30 countries around the world. Our goal is to be the number one shop for twins worldwide. Happy shopping!
