Bio

Kiki has been playing drums since the tender age of 14 and has always had a passion for performing.

Her background as a Ballet dancer made room for creativity and being on the stage. Studying Ballet at Pro Arte Alphen Park introduced her to many forms and styles of dance, and of course, dancing in many productions introduced her to performing and developing a passion for music and the arts.

Playing drums became a very important part of her life from a very young age, and at 15 years old formed her first band which then started performing live shows and numerous “battle of the bands” competitions, many of which they won.

Kiki then was asked to join a band at the age of 19 that really took off and constantly kept her busy with rehearsing and performing. Many shows were played and people really enjoyed Kiki’s enthusiasm behind the drums.

In 2008 she entered into a competition and took home the award for best drummer of the KFC Squarewave’s battle of the bands. At the age of 25 Kiki decided to learn more about the instrument and enrolled in a full time Drum course at COPA PTA, which she completed with honors. Being able to read music has always been a dream and studying really boosted her confidence as a musician.

Kiki has been featured on MK and played at all the major festivals in South Africa including Oppikoppi and FORR in Mozambique.

Teaching has always been a dream that can finally be realized in the form of opening up her very own Music academy- MUZOKI,

Inspiring the youth of Pretoria to develop the same love and passion for music that she has is her passion.
