Multi-talented rapper, model and actor | 1.3 Million Instagram Followers
Paris and Pierre Byrdsong are identical twins (born October 06, 2000), better known by their stage name Glo.Twinz. Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio to Toni Dixon and Baretta Byrdsong, they have an older brother named Baretta Byrdsong Jr. ( just two years older).
Their parents split up when the twins were just two years of age and mother Toni remarried in 2008 to Charles Dixon III and the couple is still together. The twins always say they’re happy their mom married their step dad; “He’s always been a great father to them,” says mother Toni.
The Glo.Twinz are actors, models and artists, and they’ve always had dreams of being famous. In 2010, they went on their first audition in Columbus, Ohio where it all began. They knew right away, this was the road they wanted to go down. It wasn’t a one-person thing; it was something they both wanted. They said it made them feel famous. They loved the feedback they were getting being acting twins, but they also got a lot of attention just being identical twins.
Upon getting started, with the look as well as the swag, the twins decided they wanted to start a modeling career. The only thing was, the market in Ohio is very difficult to develop a successful acting, modeling or rapping career. To give the twins the best chance for success, their mother and step-dad did the almost unimaginable, they uprooted the family, moving from Ohio to Jonesboro, Georgia in 2013; Where they felt like all the action was.
As it turns out, they were right, the twins were picked up by East Coast Talent Agency, booking auditions and earning their first commercial with Synchrony Bank. They were so happy actually being on set. Soon, the twins we are contestant on “Rip The Runway,” Cynthia Bailey from Atlanta House Wives was a judge and the the won first and second place. They knew that Georgia was the right place to be. It’s like they were born stars.
Glo.Twinz also loved to dance so they started an Instagram page; posting all of their dance moves, commercials and modeling clips. The Glo.Twinz’ fan base went crazy engaging with the guys on social media. Their Instagram audience has exploded to over 700,000 engaged friends and followers.
The twins’ older brother, known as RettaBabii, is also an artist and songwriter. So, before the twins even knew they could rap, their older brother said, “You guys have all these followers; I’m about to make you rappers.”
RettaBaii wrote their fist single, “It’s My Birthday,” which he posted on Soundcloud. “It’s My Birthday” received about 20,000 plays in the first week. That’s the beginning of how they became these exciting young musical artists.
To date, Glo.Twinz have appeared on the scene and in the scenes with other young lions like Migos and iHeart Memphis, among others.
The Glo.Twinz are only 15 years of age and their careers are taking off. As usual, they would say, “That’s what we prayed for, rising to the top with prayer and faith.”
They have a bright future and great things in store. Their house is filled with stars.
