B and T

They're twins who live in different countries on the continent. Ok, so they're not really twins, but you catch our drift.

Is it just us or is there a great resemblance between Bonang Matheba and Toke Makinwa? Okay, it's not just us. A lot of people have picked this up, including the two media personalities who often even refer to each other as "twins". 

When you peep some of their pictures on Instagram, you can't hep but wonder who's who. For real.

As if resembling each other wasn't enough, the Nigerian star and the South African TV host also seem to have the same taste. 

Even their car selfies tend to look the same.

It really must be a BFF thing. In an interview with Ghana's Vanessa Gyan, Toke described Bonang as an amazing person. 

She explained that they met on social media. "I stumbled on her page one day and thought 'this is me, this person is living my life - very vocal, she loves fashion, she likes to take pictures... and then we started talking and it's amazing how we just connect on every level... It's just really rare, we push each other as well." 

She said it's all love between them and that they also like to have fun.

Toke added: "We try. Friendship is one of those things you keep working at. We're very open with each other so I guess that's one of those things that's kept us still friends. But she's an amazing person."
