Raimondo Viviano van Staden was born in Pretoria and currently lives in Krugersdorp, west of Johannesburg.
At the age of 13 he decided that music was his mission in life and he's worked hard to be successful. He believes that anyone can be taught to dance but not everyone can sing, which is why he wants to make the most of the talent that he has.
He's also wild about dancing in his spare time. He has three dogs that are very special to him. If he ever gets the chance to go on a dream holiday, he would go to a tropical island.
His favourite film is Forrest Gump, he frequently watches 7de Laan and he's inspired by international singing sensation Bryan Adams.
His Supersterre celeb coach was Nianell.
