Auckland rap duo Church & AP credit their success to local youth charity

Teen rap duo Church & AP have released an EP at just 17 and 18 years old, and member Elijah Manu says another is on the way.

Manu is Church, and Purcell is AP.

Their latest single 'Ready or Not' has already hit 1 million streams on Spotify and more radio plays than the pair can count.

The duo are crediting that success to community outreach programme The Crescendo Trust of Aotearoa.

The pair spoke to Newshub reporter Wilhelmina Shrimpton.
