A rose by another other name is still a rose – Juliet (Romeo & Juliet)
Is It Keron Mc Leish or Keron Rose? Is Mr Rose an alter ego? Lol…I always get asked, and I figure, let me set the record straight now.
I was born in Trinidad & Tobago to Anthony Rose and Sharon Mc Leish. My mother decided to leave for Canada when I was about a month old, and she changed my name to her last name when we moved to Canada.
My father is pretty popular here in Trinidad, as he is one of the music directors in Exodus Steelband.
And because everyone thinks I look almost identical to him, people always refer to me as Mr Rose. Truthfully, the name has always resonated and stuck with me, even though I spent my life thus far carrying my mother’s name.
In 2019 though, I do plan to legally change my name back to Rose. That’s the main reason why the name of this website is Keron Rose.
So there it is folks, mystery busted lol.
