Reddy became famous in 2016 after a video of a fight between a group of friends at a braai went viral on social media.
The video showed Keegan assaulting one of his friends when another friends interjected saying, “Warrapen relax..we all braz, warrapen Keegan.”
Another friend who seemed to have been filming the altercation, stood on a fire and burnt his shoes.
“My shoes got burnt, I didn’t even realise I was standing on the fire.”
The video soon began an online sensation and a popular catch phrase among Durban locals.
