The performer has considerable popularity through social media, becoming a trend with any news related to her private life. But Kenia Os, whose real name is Kenia Guadalupe Flores Osuna, is a YouTuber and businesswoman. She was born on July 15, 1999, in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, and is 24 years old.

That moment came in 2022 with the release of two other successful albums, Cambios de Luna and K23, for which she has been nominated for the first time at the Latin Grammys.

Her look follows the transparency trend with additional exceptional detail (and one that many celebrities have worn on red carpets): visible lingerie.
