He's just a Kidd from Mackay

DJ KIDD Benny left Mackay five years ago, travelled to Melbourne for a gig and never came home. In that time he learnt a lot and met people crucial to the music industry. The entertainer, pictured, has performed with Justice Crew, Savage, Timomatic, D12, J Boog, Lukie D, Sean Kingston, Pretty Ricky, Spawnbreezie, Sammy J, Fiji, Swiss and Jah Boy.

"Sometimes I can't believe a kid from Mackay could do this,” he said.

While learning from the best and networking, Kidd Benny was also training to be a youth worker and has a strong focus on bringing music to the younger generation.

He returns to Mackay tomorrow night to perform on the stage where it all began, bringing his trademark sound - a mixture of RnB, old school and childhood sounds mash-ups. He will reunited with MC Snook after six years apart.

The Hyp3 Melbourne Takeover - Ft Kidd Benny will be at McGuires CBD Hotel from 7pm.
