Tevin Reddy is 11 years old and taking over the local rap scene

July 16, 2021

He’s released 4 singles and a music video thus far.

Tevin Reddy is just 11 years old, but he is already making quite the impact on the local rap scene. So far, he has dropped four singles and one stunning music video. Hailing from KwaZulu-Natal, this rapper writes his own lyrics and takes complete charge of his creative process. He first started making waves in April 2020 when he released “Vibes on Check” on YouTube. It became a near-instant hit. “My songs highlight the blessed lifestyle that I’m fortunate to live. I gain inspiration from every experience and I highlight and celebrate my family members and those close to me in some of the songs I write,” Reddy said when speaking to News24. His career skyrocketed mostly due to live performances he gave at local restaurants, but with the advent of COVID-19, he had to make alternative plans to get his name out there. His dad owns a recording studio and sooner rather than later, Tevin found himself spending more and more time in the studio recording new beats. Tevin says he wants to inspire other young artists to stick with their dreams and explore their talents to the fullest. Tevin’s songs have been playlisted on several commercial radio stations, like East Coast Radio, as well as Durban Youth Radio and Sunrise FM.
