MC Kevin’s passing continues to make waves on the internet as people are collectively shocked by the circumstances surrounding his passing. The Brazilian rap star was steadily becoming a global name before he tragically lost his life after falling 5 stories from a hotel balcony. Sadder still are the details surrounding why he was up there and why he was fleeing the hotel suite in the first place. While friends, family and fans from around the world have paid their respects, one friend in particular remained quiet until recently.
Born as Kevin Nascimento Bueno on April 29th 1998, MC Kevin was a native of São Paulo and singer of Brazilian Funk Music and rapper. The artist was best known for hit records “O Menino Encantou a Quebrada”, “Trojan Horse”, “Pra Inveja é Tchau” and “Veracruz”. In addition to those solo songs, Kevin also has a list of collaborations with São Paulo funk acts like MC Davi , MC Hariel , Kevinho , MC Pedrinho , MC Don Juan , Salvador da Rima , MC Ryan SP , among others.
MC Kevin was staying in Rio de Janeiro for a performance at the club Mansão Imperador, located in Madureira in the North Zone of the famed city. At the local event known as Baile do Imperador , the “funkeiro” held his last show accompanied by his wife Deolane Bezerra in the early hours of May 16 2021.
Kevin and Bezerra had just wed just a few weeks prior to his passing. The pair tied the knot on April 29, 2021 in a ceremony in Tulum, Mexico. They lived together in Mogi das Cruzes, in Greater São Paulo. Bezerra is a criminal lawyer.
MC Kevin was a party boy and popular with the ladies. Unfortunately he decided to step out on his wife not too long after the got married. He and friend Victor Elias Fontenelle met model Bianca Domingues on the beach boardwalk earlier that day. According to Globo, they invited Domingues back to their suite where the three began to have a threesome. Kevin became alarmed by a knock at the door believing his wife had discovered them. In an attempt to get away, he jumped off the balcony to get to another balcony around 7 p.m. Unfortunately he did not reach the other balcony and fell 5 stories to his death. The knock on the door was not his wife but instead another friend who was looking to get in on the action.
Comedy legend Marlon Wayans appears to have formed a bond with MC Kevin before his passing. The two have pictures of each other up on their social media.
