Tkay Maidza | Tarica June at Songbyrd


Tkay Maidza with Tarica June

Tkay Maidza played every festival in Australia worth mentioning and now a phenomenal performance at South by Southwest has put 21-year-old Adelaide rapper Tkay Maidza on the cusp of global stardom.

Maidza received rave reviews at the Texas festival for her electric presence on stage and now the Nike Air Max ambassador is to perform a secret pop-up gig in Sydney this Saturday to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the iconic shoe.

Maidza, who arrived in Australia from Zimbabwe at the age of five, says she is flattered to be compared to Miaand Azealia Banks— even if her international fans are confused about where she’s from.

“In the US people don’t know if I’m African or Australian,” she told Confidential.

“It’s rare to be African and an Aussie so no one knows what I sound like, but I just sound like myself.”
