Artists Continue to Rise Despite Challenges
How Artists Like The Bingo Players and Romeo Dunn Make Us All Inspired
It’s always humbling to know that even celebrities we look up to have their own personal challenges to face. What’s inspiring is how they face those challenges to become better people and better icons for the public to look up to. Here’s a glimpse of how two music icons faced their respective obstacles.
Being a popular UK rapper and part of famed garage group So Solid Crew, Marvin Dawkins aka MC Romeo was enjoying the limelight when issues of violence suddenly threatened his music career. As reported by DailyMail.co.uk citing a court hearing, “Former So Solid Crew star Romeo slashed a man during a vicious attack on a fellow night clubber.” According to Sarah Forshaw, member of the prosecuting panel, Romeo rushed to assist friends after the said group got involved in a heated discussion after a night out in London’s West End. Prosecution decided to discontinue the charges on November 2005. Rising from that issue, Romeo worked doubly harder on his career. He joined 2012’s UK Celebrity Big Brother. “The So Solid Crew star had been a popular housemate and was greeted by a cheering and positive crowd as he left the Elstree residence,” UnrealityTV.co.uk reported. He then proceeded to swoon fans, even joining a matchmaking event. As reported by FemaleFirst.co.uk, “In order to launch their Bingo dating, (online gaming community) foxybingo enlisted the help of some of the hottest single TV stars, rappers and Olympians to go on a speed date with 24 luscious ladies.” The speed-dating event mixed in with classic social game bingo gave a boost to Romeo’s celebrity reputation as a very eligible bachelor and ladies-man.
