Babeeeeeeeeeee! When I tell you Kway hit it out the park with this one.
Award-winning actor, comedian and social media sensation Kwaylon Rogers, also known as BlameItOnKway, will join Tyler Perry and a all star cast for the highly anticipated “Medea’s Farewell Tour” kicking off in Oakland, CA on January 18, 2018. The nationwide tour which is scheduled to travel over the course of four months will be the end for Tyler’s longtime character “Madea” and an introduction to a new character played by Kway. The tour will also feature familiar faces Tamala Mann, David Mann and Cassi Davis.
While Kway already has a huge presence via social media with his famed character “Titi”, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Farewell Tour will mark the first time the actor/comedian takes “Titi” on the road in a stage show. This role is a “Dream come true” says Kway who originally initiated the relationship with Perry via Instagram in a post asking his fans to tag Tyler. The two begin conjuring up ideas of how they could work together and the rest is history.
“So hard keeping this news awar from yall! Starting January 18th, for 5 whole epic months, i’ll be traveling the world with Tyler Perry on his last play tour”- Kway
Kway prioritizes his goal to leave a legacy in all that he does. The award winning actor and comedian stand firm in his opinion that you can do and be anything in this world you want to be by simply following you dreams, being great to people and working hard.
Kway is the first and only influencer to secure social media collaborations with international stars including Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, and Tiffany Haddish. Last month, Kway celebrated a huge milestone in his career by opening up his very first restaurant “Krab Queenz” in Houston, TX. The Tyler Perry Madea’s Farewell Tour announcement marks yet another epic moment in the stars career and solidifies Kways spot in entertainment.
Kwaylon Rogers was born on February 11th, 1991 in Dallas, Texas and raised in Oak Cliff (a urban inner-city of Dallas). Growing up in an disadvantaged community, Kway found fun in telling jokes, role playing and pulling pranks on his family and friends. He enjoyed making people laugh including his teachers who tried their best not to allow his humor to disrupt the classroom, eventually leading him to be titled the class clown, which followed him through high school. In 2009, Kway and his family moved to Houston, where he attended TSU, majoring in Social Work. While in college, Kway worked at a local CVS, where a regular customer took notice in Kway’s charismatic personality and recruited him to a position at Nordstrom in 2012. As Kway found a calling in high-end retail, his retail career would lead him to a position at Saks Fifth Avenue in 2014. It was during that time that Kway began posting comedic and musical content on Instagram with his mom’s wigs, eventually leading him to create his alter-ego character Titi in 2015. As Kway was gaining popularity, it was his 15 second viral video skit ‘Bring it down 3 more notches’ that made him an overnight sensation, gaining over 250 thousand new fan followers including Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. Soon after, Kway would trademark Titi’s signature look with the green hair and pink lipstick. Even with the new found fame, Kway continued to work in retail as he took a position with Christian Louboutin in 2016; however, with his fame rising and in-demand booking requests, Kway took his sister’s advice and took Titi seriously and full-time, thus leading him to move to Los Angeles in 2017. This leap of faith move proved to be a major blessing as Kway was hand-selected by Rihanna to be the face of the 2018 Fenty Beauty campaign for her MATTEMOIUSELLE lipstick collection. Kway has also been the first and only social media influencer to collaborate with international artists Janet Jackson and Jennifer Lopez and is working on a major project with Tyler Perry for 2019. In October 2018, Kway also premiered his first scripted show ‘Titi Do You Love Me’ on the new digital network Zeus Network, which received positive reviews. With the numerous viral videos Kway has created, it makes sense that he would be featured as one of Paper Magazine’s ‘Breaking The Internet’ recipients in 2017. In addition, Kway earned the Best Social Media Comedian in the LMAO Category at the 2018 BET Social Media Awards as well as the Digital and Social Media Excellence Recipient at the 2018 Sheen Magazine’s Kimmie Awards. With currently over 6 million fans on social media (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter) and hard-earned accomplishments, there is no stopping Kway. He is a true force to be reckoned with as fans continue to anticipate his next move, so keep watching! Kway currently resides in Los Angeles, CA with his baby yorkie, Brodie.
