Even DJ Tira sang his praises and started giving him advice which didn’t sit well with his legion of fans, many called him out and said he was just being opportunistic.

His energetic and unique dance skills have taken the country by storm and the likes of Lasizwe and Riky Rick have already taken part in it. Check out some of the videos from the challenge and let us know who killed it the most.

His history-making birthday party that took place in Braamfontein this past weekend is still one of the most talked-about conversations this week. Vinny not only packed the venue where his gig was taking place, but he also packed the streets on the entire Braam.

It’s not a lot of 19-year-olds that can say that they had the likes of Boity, Riky Rick and Major League DJs performing at their party.

Chatting to Ms Cosmo and Scoop on the Popcast, the 19-year-old revealed that it all started in Theatre. “I started doing theatre in Grade 4. I had the love of SA Hip Hop before I was introduced to Hip Hop. I’m more of a curious person. If I like something, I get to it fast. I just liked radio.” He added.

“In Grade 7 we did this project in Hillbrow Theatre. We had a frequency where only people at the flat would be able to listen to the radio. I tried radio in Grade 8 and they told me I was too young.” Then Bongani, who was a station manager at the time allowed Vinny to come and guest present. At the time they didn’t have a presenter for a teen show."
