Where it all started
Keiynan was born on December 19, 1991, to a Nigerian father of Edo descent and an Australian mother of Irish and Danish descent. In total, he has eleven (!) siblings, with him being the youngest.
Although he’s only just really making a breakthrough as a singer, he is already well-known in the acting world. In 2007, he got his first acting job with a dancing part in the film Razzle Dazzle: A Journey into Dance and became a recurring cast member of the Australian teen drama Dance Academy in 2012. But most people know him from his role as superhero Kid Flash in the CW’s hit series The Flash and as Bram in Love, Simon. According to him, the movie helped him come to terms with his own sexuality.
He’s a person after our own hearts because he is also involved in fashion! He has made his Paris Fashion Week runway debut in 2019 with Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2020 collection. He also walked the Met Gala pink carpet in a Manish Arora gown covered in over a thousand handmade, embroidered butterflies. He really said fuck toxic masculinity.
