QWABE TWINS: ‘VIRGIN TESTING WAS A VOLUNTARY DECISION’
The Qwabe twins Virginia and Viggy were commended by people for preserving their virginity and staying pure despite the pressures of the entertainment industry.
Viggy reveals in an interview with Daily Sun:
“We were only `10-years-old when we started attending virginity testing. Our older sister used to do it and we were inspired to join her.”
She adds that it was a voluntary decision and they were happy to take the test as they were initially doing it for fun.
“But as we grew older, we realized its importance.”
The publication adds that the 25-year-old musicians began attending the reed dance at the age of 16 and now both the virgin testing and the reed dance have become part of their lifestyle.
Viggy also reveals that their schedule has constrained them from attending and they haven’t been able to attend over the past few years.
“But, we attended virginity testing regularly.”
The twins have never had a boyfriend because they were committed to their music careers.

VIGGY AND VIRGINIA IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Virginia tells Daily Sun that they already knew the pressures of the entertainment industry when they pursued music but they were already mature and knew what they wanted.
“The reality is that we do get suitors, but we have decided to stay pure and preserve our virginity. Also, we’ve never had boyfriends because we don’t have time.”
The twins are also encouraging other young women to preserve their virginity.
“I want to encourage young girls that you can be a celebrity and still be a virgin. We are happy to take this route because it protected us.”
