Out & About


THEY’RE like two peas in a pod. Not only are they mir­ror im­ages of each other, the twins who make up Ma­jor League have lots in com­mon too.

BANDILE and BANELE MBERE (28), the brains be­hind the amapi­ano hit EP Ase Trap Ke Pina Tsa Ko Kasi, tell us it’s all in the genes when we chat­ted to them re­cently.

The dy­namic duo dish on what they like and don’t like . . .

Your favourite artists right now?

Banele Sjava and Nasty C are top of my list of male artists and Zonke is my favourite fe­male artist. She’s very tal­ented. Bandile Nasty C and my homey and best friend, Na­dia Nakai.

How do you deal with groupies?

Banele I’m used to at­ten­tion be­cause I’m a twin, but it’s be­come worse since I be­came a celebrity, so I take it easy and don’t let it get to my head. Bandile I don’t en­ter­tain them much. I take pho­tos, smile and make con­ver­sa­tion. My rule is: you can’t be in bed with your fans.

How do you han­dle crit­i­cism on so­cial me­dia?

Banele I just ig­nore it. No one ques­tions or­gan­i­sa­tions such as banks when they change their lo­gos for ex­am­ple, so why ques­tion me as a brand?

Bandile I look at it and just block that nega­tiv­ity.

What’s the one thing you don’t mind splurg­ing on?

Banele Clothes. Bandile Def­i­nitely clothes! I can’t stop.

LEFT: Ma­jor League have jumped on the amapi­ano band­wagon with the re­lease of Ase Trap Ke Pina Tsa Ko Kasi. RIGHT: The twins, with their late fa­ther, have al­ways loved mu­sic and clothes, even as lit­tle boys.
