Who is Kenzo B?
American rapper, YouTuber and social media star Te’arah Gaines, known better by her professional name Kenzo B was born under the zodiac sign Pisces on 4 March 2004, in The Bronx, New York City USA. She’s steadily making a name for herself in the music industry, and some of her most popular songs are “The Facts”, “Make It Lit” and “Bump It”. Kenzo’s today perhaps known best for her self-titled YouTube channel, which she launched on 27 January 2021, and which is subscribed to by nearly 60,000 people. She’s posted 39 videos, and all of these combined have amassed nearly 7.5 million views; most of Kenzo’s videos are her original songs, with others featuring her spending time with her friends, and covering songs of other popular artists.
Education and early life
Kenzo was raised in The Bronx alongside her older brother Omar Gaines – aka Bando Gz – who’s today also a rapper, by their parents about whom Kenzo hasn’t disclosed many details because they prefer to be left out of media; it’s believed that both their mother and father are factory workers, but this hasn’t been confirmed by Kenzo.
She studied at a local high school in The Bronx, and was passionate about multiple activities during her time there, as she enjoyed dancing and singing at various school events, as well as appearing in school plays, and running track. It was during this time that Kenzo became passionate about rapping, and decided to pursue it as a career.
She matriculated in 2022, and even though her family hoped that she would perhaps enroll at college, Kenzo chose to pursue a career in the music industry instead.
Most popular YouTube videos
Kenzo’s quite popular on YouTube for her original music videos, but her fans have stated that they also like her for her attractive looks, sense for style and for having succeeded regardless of the many obstacles which she’s faced in life. We’ll be covering Kenzo’s three most viewed YouTube videos as these have contributed to her overall popularity.
Her #1 video “Kenzo B – Bump It (Official Video)” has been watched nearly two million times since 12 February 2022, and features her rapping to the music from the popular song “Pump It” by Black Eyed Peas; it’s about Kenzo standing up for herself and dissing all those who hate her.
Kenzo’s second most popular video “Kenzo B – BFFR (Official Music Video)” has been viewed nearly a million times since 20 June 2023; it’s a song in which she’s trying to motivate other black girls to pursue their dreams.
Her third most watched video “Kenzo B – Dead Game (Official Music Video)” has been viewed more than 800,000 times since 11 March 2023, and it’s also her original song about how she’s managed to succeed in the music industry.
Kenzo’s active on various social media networks, and these represent one of her main sources of income.
Over 200,000 people are following her on Instagram today, and she’s uploaded 100 pictures and videos, with most featuring her performing at various events, traveling around the US, and showing off her clothes.
She’s tweeted nearly 550 times since the creation of her Twitter account in April 2022, and there are today nearly 3,500 people following her on the network; most of her tweets are about her music, while in others she’s sharing her thoughts on various matters.
Kenzo’s followed by over 110,000 people on TikTok, but is following back only a few over 100; most of her videos feature her lip syncing, spending time with her friends and dancing, and all of these together have amassed nearly two million likes. It seems as Kenzo’s nowadays mostly focused on running her TikTok and Instagram accounts.
She also has a Facebook profile, but it seems as Kenzo’s only using Facebook to keep in touch with her real life friends and family members, and thus doesn’t allow interaction with her fans; her most recent Facebook post was on 9 July 2023, when she updated her cover photo.
