Dancehall entertainer Junior Henry will now no longer be answering to his moniker Tanto Blacks anymore.
The “Tru Billionaire” deejay who gained popularity after entering the Magnum Kings and Queens of Dancehall competition in 2009, announced earlier this week that his new name stage is Real Rich.
Rich had been plugging the name since last year via his social media videos and performances with the tagline, “What’s my first name, Real, last name Rich,” however he says its now official.
According to Real Rich, the name change comes after law enforcement officers informed him that a criminal was using the alias Tanto Blacks.
The deejay is also undergoing a major lifestyle change, Real Rich has stopped eating meat since July and has not consumed liquor in three months. He is also restricting social media use and focused on his career, family and religion.
The entertainer added that fans can now expect new music from him, “I cannot say what I am putting out is dancehall or reggae alone because I can go overseas and do hip hop or I can meet up with Sizzla and do a nice culture song. I am all for anything that feels right and great,” Rich said. “But for now, I want to get my songs as Real Rich out there before I start to collaborate again.”
