Soca artiste, entrepreneur, TV broadcaster, host and in his spare time has somehow managed to become a Mechanical Engineer.
It’s Rome!!!! This 30-year-old Arima born “Trini boy” may seem like the new kid on the block to soca lovers but he is no stranger to the entertainment industry. He combines his vocal abilities, sex appeal, and onstage personality to whip his audience into a frenzy while stealing the hearts of the ladies both young and old. Rome is that crossover artist that has managed to make your teen go into a screaming fit while making your mother giggle like a school girl. His appeal is electric!
Rome has been the opening act for some of the biggest soca fetes in Trinidad and Tobago for the Carnival season, in front of thousands of screaming fans. He continued on to the International Stage, performing inToronto, the US Virgin Islands, Miami and headlined a sold-out show in New York City. Rome is that fresh young sound, poised to take soca music to new audiences with his eye on the prize of making soca music just as mainstream as Bob Marley did reggae.
It is his love for his culture and unique ability to interact with people which help to drive each and every stage performance. His typical easy going Trini persona (not to mention magazine-ready face and body) has made him the most sought-after fresh face for hosting anything from live shows, television productions, and even weddings. If you haven’t seen Rome while in Trinidad, you’ve obviously been living under a rock.
He has been hosting various television shows and live events for the past ten years, including the Cable NewsChannel 3 (CNC3) television feed for the“International Power and Groovy Soca Monarch FinalsCompetition” in 2011- which is the biggest competitive platform for soca music in the world! Rome shows how versatile and sought after he is as he has hosted shows for every major television station in Trinidad andTobago and was even a Sports Anchor for C-TV (the national television station).
He is well known for his classic soca parang hit “Loveable”, which puts a smile on every Trini’s face for theChristmas season and follows it up with another hilarious soca parang track for 2016 called “Spanish Parang”.But Rome never forgets the ladies as his monster soca track “Looking for Wuk” has every woman in a party wukking up their waist till they are soaking wet.
Ladies you may want to arrange that girl’s lime early as this is one entertainer you don’t want to miss!!……….It’s Rome!!!!!!
