Twins compete

REVELLERS at the Digicel Ba Riverside Carnival were seeing double when twins, Adi Asenaca and Adi Ilisapeci Naliva lit up the stage as contestants for the event's Princess pageant.

"It was actually Asenaca who was selected from Rarawai FSC School to be in the show and Ilisapeci would accompany her to rehearsals" their mother Joana said.

"Organisers saw the other one and asked her to join and its been an exciting experience for them, as they are also the first from our family to be in such an event."

Twins are a rare feature of any pageant but there was little competition between the two, who are a mixture of Fijian and Maori heritage. They stuck close together, evidently sharing a matchless bond.
