Fast-rising singer TJ Mario Kasela, alias Trio Mio has disclosed that he is dating.
Speaking in an interview with a local radio, the 16-year-old said his girlfriend is younger, further heaping praises on her.
“Ni mdogo wangu (she is younger than me). She makes me happy, she is a vibe. She is beautiful,” Trio said.
The rapper’s mother, Irma Sakwa confirmed the relationship noting that she has personally met the girlfriend in question, further lauding her son for introducing his lover to her instead of keeping the relationship a secret.
I was happy at least he has brought a girl and I’ve met her. It’s good. It is better than keeping the relationship a secret,” the rapper’s mother said.
Speaking in a past interview, Trio revealed that his interest in music grew after continuously watching his brother rapping with his peers.
“I’ve been rapping since I could talk. Just kidding. I started rapping at the age of 10. At the time, I was rapping along to songs by my favourite artistes,” said Trio.
He added; “Watching my brother and his friends rapping to instrumentals on YouTube is what inspired me to take it seriously, that’s when I started to compose my own songs. The pandemic allowed me time to record these songs since schools were closed.”
The teen rapper is from a humble background and has two sisters and a brother.
His dad is of Italian and Congolese heritage, while his mother is Kenyan. Music flows in the family as his dad is a musician too.
