Though producer and talent manager Romeich Major made an impromptu decision to venture into the entertainment industry 16 years ago, he is pleased with the success of his brand.

“To be honest, most of my business that I've done from then till now, a nuh something weh mi did plan; a just something weh mi did feel like mi have the powers and can manage so mi just do it,” he told the Jamaica Observer after his address to scores of The University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona, students on Thursday, at the faculty of Social Sciences.

Thirty-three-year-old Major is the principal of Romeich Entertainment, to which dancehall artistes Shenseea, Teejay and Ding Dong are signed, as well as selectors Wurlfresh, Liquid, Antsman and Bishop Escobar. He also operates Romeich Wear — an original clothing line company.
He added that while he encourages youngsters to join the entertainment industry, they must also consider other modes of income.

“Of course mi encourage students fi go inna the industry, but as mi seh, it always better fi have more than one income and money fi invest in whatever you do musically…still go school, get your job and still do your music parttime, until you feel like a the best time fi do it fulltime,” Major said.
The 90-minute question-and-answer session held at the university later saw a pop-up performance by Teejay.

Students sang along as he performed popular hits such as Hundred Million Dollar, Uptop Boss and Shub Out.

Meanwhile, Sammar Reid, head of Campus Elite, the entity responsible for organising the session, looks to nurturing a fruitful relationship between Romeich's team and UWI students.

“Many students, while pursuing a degree, don't have many avenues through which they can express themselves other than academia…they have the passion and the drive but don't have a guiding hand. So while they are young and still enthused, we want to provide them with this opportunity,” Reid told the Observer.

Attendees also noted that they enjoyed the event.

“It was informative and funny. I learnt a lot about the industry,” said second-year electronics major Javier Bryan.

Journalism student, Mario Gordon, added that he really liked the event.
