Charin-robin Schuller Also Known as ‘QueenPin’, is an Independent Capetown artist. Born & raised on the Capeflat’s Charin was a very shy girl who always kept to herself and with that became a target of bullying, when she reached high school she told herself that she was going to change the situation and no longer be a target and started standing up for herself, in doing that she got involved with the wrong crowds and even dabbled in gangsterism until the age of 17 where she became a teenage mother & realized its not the way to go whilst raising an infant and in that time she had a passion for poetry and wrote her own poems, she was & still is a major fan of Tupac.
The whole idea of wanting to rap came about when ‘Charin’ sat with her brother & his friends while they all freestyled, always asking her to spit a few bars, she would always say no because she was self-conscious and afraid of being laughed at but in the meanwhile she would go home and listen to Tupac Shakur and get inspired, it’s then in 2016 that she downloaded a Tupac instrumental and wrote to it and that’s when she realized she can actually rap, Charin then started posting her lyrics on Facebook & that’s when she was discovered by another Facebook user who then invited her to a recording session at his brother’s studio & that was also her first recording session.
She then went on to join their group also known as ‘Kriminal Kontent’ & did a couple of performances but because she aspired for something greater she left and embarked on a journey of alot of ups & downs but never gave up.
On being solo she performed on various platforms such as :
The biggest platform ‘QueenPin’ performed on to date was the ‘Gigi Gang Show’ in which Gigi Lamayne personally chose her, she also got recognize by an American artist/blogger who admires her unique rap style & swag & did a podcast interview about her. she will also be performing at this year’s Mitchells Plain Dstv festival which takes place from the 29Nov-1Dec 2019.
