As twins, Paola and Pamela Ameyibor, aka Polly & Pamy, recognize that good things often come in twos. And for the DJs and rising fashion forces, that comes through in their dual Ghanaian and Italian heritage.

Having spent their formative years in Lecco, they were introduced to the world of clubs early. Their twinergy allowed them to create a euphoric presence in a culture where female DJs haven’t really established a presence. Plus, it also introduced them to the nation’s thriving fashion scene, becoming style mavens renowned for their presence in several high-profile shows, citing Prada as a favorite.

However, the three years they spent in Ghana as toddlers informed where they would take their place in these spaces. As influencers of sound, they take pride in bringing Afrobeat to the mainstream from the music their mother blasted at home every Sunday. And as influencers of style, their streetwear comfort-oriented aesthetic emphasizes a freedom of expression, one that can especially compliment darker skin tones and hair.

As Polly & Pamy “break the rules in Italy” and take their crafts to the world, it’s their dual identity that makes them such a singular force.
