MC Romeo

MC Romeo (born Marvin Dawkins, 1 November 1980, London) is a Black British UK garage music MC.


He first found fame in the garage group So Solid Crew. He subsequently had a solo career, firstly with the single Romeo Dunn which reached no. 3 in the UK charts in 2002, and secondly a duet with Christina Milian, It's All Gravy, which reached no. 4 in the chart the same year. He released his solo album Solid Love in November 2002.

He appeared in the reality show The Games in 2004, following in the footsteps of fellow So Solid Crew member, MC Harvey. He returned to the series to compete in the Champion of Champions contest in 2006. He also featured in a gameshow called Fool Around With... Romeo on Channel Four in 2005, in which he had to guess which girl out of four was single.

He has never been far from controversy, however. In 2001 at his 21st birthday concert, he and the other members of So Solid Crew were rushed off stage when two audience members were shot at close range. Police later found a 9mm Beretta handgun.

In 2005 he was cleared of attacking a clubber with a knife in a car park in London's Leicester Square. He was found not guilty after the jury failed to reach verdicts. At the trial he told the jury that he had been trying to act as peacemaker.

After the trial he admitted that So Solid Crew had been formed to give others in similar hard circumstances a dream, but that they had failed.


Mc Romeo has a second album slated for release in 2008. He is signed to So Solid mate Lisa Maffia's record label Maffia Recordz.
