Tkay Maidza‘s music career is on a serious rise right now, with support spots for Mark Ronson, Charli XCX and Rita Ora, a Vogue Australia shoot and timetable slots in our country’s biggest festivals like Splendour in the Grass.
We’re preparing for total world domination, and soon, so we’ve rounded up the most important things you need to know about this Zimbabwe-born, Adelaide-based pocket rocket with appropriate amounts of swag.
Check our top things to know about young Tkay before she totally takes the music world by storm, below.
1. Her full name is Takudzwa Victoria Rosa Maidza, and, yes, it’s a mouthful.
4. She migrated to Australia from Zimbabwe with her family when she was just 5 years old.
