Since dominating the South African music charts in 2012 at the age of 19 with his smash hit single Elephant Shoes, Jimmy Nevis has become a much-loved household name in his native country. Born and raised in the suburb of Athlone in Cape Town, he has since solidified his status with a string of other country-wide No.1 singles such as Heartboxing, 7764 ,All About It, Balloon , Hey Jimmy, and more. This year (2022), Jimmy will be celebrating 10 years in the South African Music industry.
With his live performance show being of tantamount personal importance, Jimmy has performed on the stages of some of the biggest festivals and events in Sub-Saharan Africa, some of which include Kirstenbosch Gardens, Rocking The Daisies, KFM’s KDAY, Grand West Arena (including his own solo production), Baxter Theatre, Joburg Day, Durban Day, Electric Vines, Heart Festival, The Lyric Theatre, MonteCasino, The Wavehouse, Newlands Cricket Stadium, as well as appearances on international television franchises Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing with The Stars, The Voice SA – as both guest performer and guest judge, and Coke Studios.
Among many of his accolades, Nevis has had the opportunity to work and collaborate with some of the best musicians and producers that South Africa has had to offer, including Kwesta, Karen Zoid, MiCasa, Pascal & Pearce, and Sketchy Bongo. He has also performed as the opening act for international stars such as Tevin Campbell and Pharrell Williams. He has most recently worked as a songwriter with mega producer, Dark Child.
Together with friend Cassidy Emmanuel, Nevis founded the Blue Collar Foundation in 2015, a philanthropic initiative that hopes to inspire and create change among the youth of Cape Town, with a focus on creating opportunities that encourage the youth to dream beyond the means of their socio-economic backgrounds. The foundation has managed to impart a number of full tertiary education bursaries to this effect.
He also runs the Cape Nature Camp-Out which is a family music festival that runs in the Cederberg Mountains.
