Singer, actor, TV presenter, radio host, content creator and professional chef - the term “triple threat” doesn’t even begin to describe performer Andrew Papas.

Andrew’s list of career achievements would make for an exhausting read for someone decades into their career, let alone someone under 30.

Born in South Africa, Andrew’s family emigrated to NZ when he was eight and settled on Auckland’s North Shore.

The stage called to Andrew at a young age; he has been appearing in theatre, in on-stage musicals and hosting TV shows throughout his teens and 20s, including roles in Evita, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat, Disco Inferno, High School Musical, Grease and Aladdin. He has also hosted Sticky TV as a core presenter and several radio shows.

His most recent stage turn was as Alex the Lion, one of the leads in the NZ & Australian tour of Madagascar in 2021 and then onto the NZ & Australian tour of The Ten Tenors.

During his time in all-male band Titanium, Andrew completed two sold-out nationwide tours with the band; opened for international artists Mariah Carey, Jason Derulo, Hot Chelle Rae, Will I Am and Cher Lloyed; achieved two gold-selling albums and performed the USA national anthem in New York at the world famous Madison Square Garden, for the game between the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics.

And a record-breaking music career was not all Andrew got out of his time in the band…he began crossing paths regularly with Breakfast DJ Queen Megan Sellers during this period, and the rest, as they say, is history (she is now Megan Papas)!

Since announcing his departure from Titanium in December 2015, Andrew launched his solo career with his debut single “Burn It Down”, debuting at #1 on the NZ Heatseeker charts; “Troublemaker” reached #2; “Magical” debuting at #4 on the Hot 20 NZ Singles Chart and the song “Girl” debuted at #20 on the Official NZ Top 40 charts.

Andrew is also in high demand as a content creator, having worked with brands including Spark, Adidas, GHD, Politix Menswear, Rotorua Tourism, Wellington Tourism, Sky City Breakers, Uplift Fitness Boutique, Jetts Fitness, Barkers Groom Room and The Market.

Andrew lives in Auckland with wife Megan, son Bastian & daugher Aiya
