The DRC, or the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is a country in Central Africa. Several of its characteristic qualities make it quite unique. The DRC is the most populated country in the world where the official language is French. In total measured area it’s the second largest country on the continent of Africa and the eleventh largest in the entire world. The nation’s total population level is the fourth biggest is Africa and ranked the seventeenth when compared to other countries around the globe. The Congo River flows through the entire country and is the deepest river known. The DR Congo is also where singer and songwriter Romeo M was born.
Eventually Romeo M’s parents left their native homeland and immigrated to South Africa in 1992 and it was then that he discovered his love of music. At first Romeo was separated from his parents until 1995 when he was able to also immigrate and happily reunite with them. But that happiness was brief as shortly thereafter his father passed away and it was up to youngster to begin to financially support his remaining family. So he used his artistic talents to meet the needs that had been sadly placed on his broad shoulders.
Romeo M worked in several bands for a few years before going solo in 2007. He first released My Way So Long, and then followed that with Good Morning Africa, Taille Basse, I Want to See Your Face, She Is My Type, Warra Ba Dance and Peace In Africa. This led to tours and festival performances throughout South Africa. By the end of 2016 Mr. M looked toward new horizons and decided to immigrate to North America. It was there the Afro-World-Hip-Hop artist dropped his latest release titled Tracker Love.
Tracker Love is a fun filled, tongue in cheek love song that, so far, has been warmly received worldwide by radio stations and their audiences who are hip-hop and R&B fans and listeners. A music video for the single is now available for viewing on YouTube and it’s been turning heads as people watch. Romeo M (www.facebook.com/romeonsega) continues to carry the South African counterculture (also known locally in that area as the Zef style of music) torch first ignited by other African artists such as Die Antwoord, Kwesta, and Nasty C.
