It’s been decades since hit R&B band Cleopatra released their legendary album Comin’ Atcha — but where are the group’s girls today?

The Manchester-based girl band consisted of sisters Cleo, Yonah and Zainam Higgins and were originally known as Cleopatra and the Attractions – but in 2022 the girls look incredibly different while they all have different jobs and career paths.

When the band first rose to fame, Cleo was the lead singer while her sisters Yonah and Zainam provided backing vocals.

They soon dropped part of their name and were known only as Cleopatra, with their debut track Cleopatra’s Theme entering the UK Singles Chart at number 3.

Due to their success as a group, they performed at the 1999 BRIT Awards and subsequently received nominations for a BRIT Award and a MOBO Award.

Not only were they big in the UK – they also managed to crack America, eventually selling more than 300,000 copies of their album Comin’ Atcha in the US.

With rising status in America, the trio landed their own 60-minute Disney Channel special.

And the girls not only got a TV stint in the US, they also landed a UK TV spot.

On Christmas Eve 1998, CITV saw the premiere of Cleopatra’s hour-long Christmas special for her new sitcom.

The series had two seasons – Season 1 Come on, Atha! and season 2, In the house and in every episode was twenty minutes long.

But despite their popularity, the girls were dropped from their label when their single Come and Get Me didn’t make waves like their previous work.

The girls then broke up in the early 2000s and went their separate ways before reuniting in 2005 for a one-off appearance on ITV’s hit Me, Baby, One More Time.

In 2009 they appeared on Living TV’s Pop Goes the Band and later that year the girls reunited for a special comeback show performed live at the Embassy in London.

Cleo Higgins appeared on The Voice UK in 2013 trying to make her mark as a solo singer.

She reached the semifinals before exiting the program.

And then she reappeared on our screens in 2019 when she and her sister Yonah took part in Celebrity Coach Trip.

As of April 2022, Cleo is 39 years old and has more than 5,000 followers on Instagram and often shares photos and videos of herself on stage.

Her bio reads, “Mother, Singer/Songwriter/Producer, Actress… DIVA.”

Yonah, 38, describes herself as “an experienced dance teacher with a proven track record in the sports industry.”






Zainam, 41, looks very different from her hit days

Zainam is 41 and has nearly 4,000 Instagram followers. Her bio reads: “Singer/Songwriter Model / Actress/ Proud Mother and Chef. Former Cleopatra Band Member.”
