Who was Rennie Ramnarine?
Ramnarine hails from San Fernando, Trinidad, and Tobago, and spent his formative years in the neighboring town of Gasparillo. On the memorable date of January 26, 2013, he took center stage in a singing competition held in San Fernando, Trinidad. Ramnarine clinched the coveted first prize, amassing an impressive score of 43.7 points, securing a 1.1-point lead over the second-place contestant, Rikki Jai.
This triumph brought him a substantial reward of $1,000,000, which he openly declared his intention to utilize for charitable purposes, specifically to aid the underprivileged. Fast-forward to March 22, 2014, and Ramnarine, alongside local talents Vineet Singh, Avinash Maharaj, and others, organized a noteworthy concert named “Everybody Loves Raymond,” a nod to the beloved sitcom of the same name. This event took place at the Centre of Excellence in Macoya.
Moving ahead to February 1, 2021, Ramnarine and his band unveiled the official music video for their track, “Good Vibez.” Then, on June 19, 2021, they followed up with another official music video release, this time for their song, “Tujhe Suraj.” By November 2021, this video had garnered an impressive 3.84 million views on YouTube.
As of May 2023, the video’s popularity has soared, accumulating over 12 million views on the platform. In August 2022, Ramnarine expressed one of his enduring ambitions in his musical journey, which is to showcase the “positive side” of Trinidad and Tobago and work towards dispelling the global stereotypes that unfairly cast a shadow over the region.
The family will release an obituary and funeral arrangements for Rennie Ramnarine.
