Memphis rapper Kevo Muney provides free dental cleanings to students

Memphis rapper Kevo Muney helped put a fresh smile on some South Memphis students’ faces Friday. 

Muney, 22, in collaboration with Dr. Marrio “Smiles” Thomas, provided 40 fifth-graders at Memphis Delta Prep a free dental cleaning.

“It was something different and… me having a relationship I have with Dr. Marrio, it just made sense,” Muney said. “It really just puts two dots together because I know he be putting the work in the community on his own… I know if we came together, he would have helped make everything come true.”

Atlantic Records-signed rapper Kevo Muney.

Born Kevione Austin, Muney is the youngest of eight siblings, and he said growing up he didn’t have access to dental care. Muney became Thomas’ patient in 2018, and the two have been connected ever since.

Thomas, who is also from South Memphis, has been practicing dentistry in Memphis for 25 years. He often does community outreach to not only spread awareness and offer assistance about dental hygiene but also to encourage children from his community to explore a career path in health care.
