2014-07-25 07:00

Cape Town - We had a quickie with South Africa's very own Ken! He comes wearing pink, stylish hairstyles and even shows off flashy pouts.

Nic Billington is taking on the traditional plastic Ken look and revolutionising it. The Durbanite is the latest local talent to shine on YouTube and grab the attention of the online crowd.

From styling tips to his life dreams - we got down and dirty with this new sensation.


"What are you wearing right now?"

Nic Billington

He answers with; "It’s another warm day in Durban so I’m dressed very casual yet comfortable at the moment. I have on my all-time favourite grey Craig Port joggers, and a simple black T-Shirt."


"Are you in a relationship? Spill the beans!"

Nic Billington

"Unfortunately not. I hardly have the time to sleep let alone have a relationship. If I’m not writing music, then I’m travelling, or producing music videos."

"What is your best styling tip for men?"

Nic Billington

Nic's best styling tip is; "If you feel good then you’ll look good".

He goes on to say; "there’s no need to over accessorise because less is more when it comes to styling. Keep your wardrobe simple". (We were hoping for something a little more flashy)


"How long does it take you to get ready before leaving the house?"

Nic Billington

Nic says he is the fastest to get ready amongst his friends, he adds; "It really depends on the occasion, but if I’m heading to the shops or just hanging out for the day, I’ll take between 10-15 minutes to get ready. If I have a gig or function to attend, I usually take around 35 minutes to get ready."


"What’s your dream for the future?"

Nic Billington

"I’m working hard towards being recognised throughout the world as a musician.  It would be awesome if South African artists could stay in their own country and make a name for themselves here instead of pursuing careers overseas.

"Thankfully, the internet has really played a huge role in exposing some of South Africa’s talent. I would also like to have had a string of successful albums and music videos."
