Romeo Dunn rose to fame in the early noughties as a member of the garage group, So Solid Crew. The group were the first band of their type in the UK and paved the way for other urban music artists who followed in their footsteps. As part of the band, he has a string of Brit Award nominations under his belt and also a win for Best Urban Act in 2003.
A London boy, Romeo and the group had a string of top ten hits including “Oh No (Sentimental Things)” and “21 Seconds”, which reached number one in the UK singles charts in August 2001.
After his time in the urban musical collective, Romeo had a solo career with top ten hits “Romeo Dunn” and a colaboration with US artist, Christina Milian, “It’s All Gravy”. This instant smash hit thrust Romeo to the forefront of musical fame and he was chosen to represent the UK on the Murder Inc tour alongside urban legends, Ja Rule and Ashanti.
Romeo is excited for his stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house and is looking forward to meeting his fellow housemates.
