How Old is Supa Cent?
Cent was born as Reynell Steward on 2 February 1988 in New Orleans. While she was in middle school, she was bullied by other students. Eventually, she dropped out of high school.
After that, Cent started working as a waitress in the French Quarters of the neighborhood. Along with that, she also worked as a housekeeper for some time.
Then in 2005, Cent joined social media when hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast of the United States, especially the New Orleans part of the country. She became active in posting videos on anything she came across, which the viewers found funny. She also uploaded her make-up videos, her ups and downs, and her best tricks. And soon, people began asking her tips and proper tutorials, which gave her the idea of creating a makeup product for beginners.
Eventually, in 2017, Cent put all of her savings into creating a brand for makeup beginners. She called it Crayon Case as she wanted it to become a product that can meet the demands of a learning makeup artist.
Initially, Cent was experimenting with the products. She first launched the eyeshadow palette Box of Crayons, which offered an array of hues and pigments. She prepared it to convey a nostalgic recollection of childhood with crayons and vivid colors.
The palette went viral on social media. It reminisced people’s childhood and stood on its ground with the quality of the product, which attracted customers ranging from amateurs to professionals.
After that, Cent also launched a wide range of cosmetic products, including highlighters, palettes, lip and eye pencils, more eyeshadow palettes, and lipsticks. In addition to that, she also named the products after her close friends as an honor for their help during the low point of her life. The very first eyeshadow palette was named after her friend Briki, then another palette was named Ross, Tokyo, along with a brush set after her friend Judy.
And in a Cyber Monday sale of 2018, she made a million dollars in revenue within two hours. She had also signed deals with various influencers and media personalities for promotion.
When asked about her expectations on the product’s success, Cent said, “Not in a million years. I knew it would be popular because it was in my strategy. I was going to pay whoever I needed to pay to get my company exposure. Just so happened, it went viral from the creativity of the brand. It happened so fast. [It’s a] wonderful blessing.”
Followed by that, in 2019, she sold $1.37 million within an hour during the year’s Cyber Monday Sale.
Fiancee and Ex-Boyfriend
Although unconfirmed when Cent was engaged to be married to Louis, also known as Lou, she broke off the engagement in late July of 2020 after series of allegations.
After radio host, Milagro Gramz took it to Twitter to post the alleged chat between Louis and the alleged teenager, Cent, also known as Wuzzam Supa, broke up with Lou in October 2019.
Even though Lou responded to the allegations stating that he was misled by the girl and implying that he texted her when he and Cent were on a break, Cent ultimately decided to move on in her life.
“True or False. I’m not bout to stick around to find out,” the social media star said on Twitter. In a follow-up tweet, Supa Cent said. “I know some may think this is funny and that’s fine. But I can’t flex like my I’m not hurt. It was def a gut punch to the stomach. I’ll get through it tho. I appreciate all the genuine love and support from my sincere supporters. Thank you so much.”
Cent and Lou had a daughter, Lea Mae League, in 2019. And after they broke up, they went through a social media back and forth related to the child’s custody.
