MEET SOCIAL MEDIA STARS, THE SOBEKWA TWINS
Discover the bond and inspiration behind YouTube sensations, Anelisa and Asanele Sobekwa.
Best friends and twins Anelisa and Asanele, aka the Sobekwa twins, have grown their bubbly personalities and love for fashion into a business, creating social media content closely followed by their avid fanbase.
“We know each other so well. It’s difficult for people to infiltrate our bond. It is something that we have to somehow unlearn because we can’t be that codependent on each other,” share the twins almost in unison before delving into their journey to discover their own individuality.
Widely loved for their sense of style, the girls firmly believe that a timeless wardrobe trumps trends.
“Our mom always told us, don’t buy something that you wouldn’t be able to wear in the next 10 years. But also, we just like simple styles, we don’t like things that are over the top.”
In addition to sharing their fashion and beauty tips, Anelisa and Asanele promote a balanced lifestyle.
“At first, when we started eating healthy, it was hard to adjust but it now makes us feel good and makes us feel like we have our lives in order,” share the twins.
Yoga is one of the ways they stay active and healthy, with the help of expert instructors like Kafui Awoonor who has a practice in Kloof Street, Cape Town.
In addition to having a professional to assist with alignment and the prevention of injuries, “The benefits of practicing in community is that you create a space that you hold together, and that energy definitely contributes to your practice,” shares Kafui.
It’s clear to see that the Sobekwa twins’ friendship and good health is the foundation of their lives. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for them as their influence grows.
