Growing up, the young twin boys from Brockley attended Crofton Comprehensive in Lewisham, now renamed Prendergast Ladywell School, where 22% of pupils get free school meals and exam passes are well below the national average.
Steve and Sam fell into the wrong crowd for a while as gang members to the point that 12 years ago, Steve was convicted of obtaining money by deception.
From that moment onwards, the brothers decided that enough was enough and chose to establish themselves in a wholesome means of livelihood.

The twin brothers then started various businesses such as Tramp, a lifestyle and concierge magazine, and researched financial markets and data, before they decided to move into cryptocurrency.
They originally thought it might raise a few thousand pounds, but 24 hours later they had assets worth £1.85 million in Ethereum digital currency.
Narrating their story in an interview, Sam said: "We had been involved on the fringes of gangs as teenagers when we were growing up in South London – but it’s fair to say that our lifestyles have changed completely"
In another story, identical twins, La’nisha and Ron’nisha Richardson, who are both graduating seniors from Yazoo City, Mississippi, have graduated top of their class with 4.1 GPAs.
A report by Blacknews.com indicates that due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has plagued the entire world, the class of high school graduates have been unable to hold any ceremony to mark the grand transition.
La’nisha and Ron’nisha Richardson have been disappointed by the development as they wished to celebrate their success amidst cheering crowds but they are nonetheless glad to have attained the feat.
