About the Artists
Hot on the heels of his most recent release, ‘Amazing’ on April 14 this year, Youngn Lipz is bringing the party to New Zealand, with not one, but two back-to-back shows this June. The hip-hop rising star first hit global radars with the release of his 2019 debut single, ‘Misunderstood,’ which currently stands at a whopping 35 million+ plays on Spotify alone.
Youngn Lipz (aka Lipo Faaolii) has had massive success in a mere three years, with a dedicated fanbase not just on his home turf, but across the world. Lipz has also been recognized as both a Gold and Platinum certified artist by ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association), and his debut album, ‘Area Baby,’ ranked in the top tens in both Australian and New Zealand charts.

Supporting the hip-hop musician for the evening are frequent collaborators DJ Sir-Vere and MC Bigg Romez. Hamilton-based DJ Sir-Vere (aka Phil Bell) is a pioneer in the NZ hip-hop scene, donning multiple hats across the board, from being a live performer to promoting gigs. Having made appearances on both television and radio, with an extensive background in the Kiwi hip-hop industry, DJ Sir-Vere was awarded the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2018 for his contributions to music.
MC Bigg Romez is another Kiwi scene staple and is usually seen on almost every major NZ music event line-ups and top nightclubs. Romez (aka Jerome Bigg Romez Tugia) first collaborated with DJ Sir-Vere in 2016. Since then, the duo has been seen performing together countless times, with their most recent performance at The Yot Club in Raglan in April this year.
