Tagoe Sisters is the name of a musical duo consisting of twins Lydia Dedei Yawson Nee Tagoe and Elizabeth Korkoi Tagoe. They have been singing in the gospel music industry since 1983.[1]

Early life[edit]

Lydia Dedei Yawson Nee Tagoe and Elizabeth Korkoi Tagoe, who are twins, were born to the late Hammond Ayikwei Tagoe and Madam Theresa Aidoo on July 27, 1965.[1][2] Their father, Hammond Ayikwei Tagoe, was from Korle-Wokon, a suburb of Accra and their mother, Theresa Aidoo, was from Dunkwa-on-Offin in the Central Region.[3][4] They had their education at the Alogboshie primary and middle school, near Achimota in Accra. Later, they went to the YMCA to learn dressmaking, which they abandoned to venture into singing.[2][3]

Career[edit]

In the early days of their career, the duo worked in a group of three, with Hannah Tsia Mensah, called the "I am Three Sisters".[5]
