Hailing from my hometown, Dallas, TX, Ro Truitt aka Main Event (M.E.), is making moves from music to the food industry. Born and raised in Dallas, TX and a graduate of University of North Texas (my college whoop!), Main Event along with his brother Romello Truitt and designer Taron Wade, build a fashion brand called Ro Collection.
The brothers established Ro Collection in 2005 and have been featured in fashion shows, celebrities and major events/networks such as All Star Weekend/New York Fashion Week and BET. The clothing company has looks for men and women as well as accessories. I asked M.E. where he sees Ro Collection in the next 5 years. Main Event: “Hopefully in New York Fashion Week and in stores worldwide.” Check out more from Ro Collection at www.RoCollection.com
Here are some items from Ro Collection
Main Event (M.E.) – The Artist
Main Event popped onto the Dallas scene with his hit single, “Dance like a Stripper” in 2012. The song instantaneously populated nationwide. The song has over 8 million views on YouTube and is still getting airplay. I asked M.E. did he expect “Dance like a Stripper” to be as popular as it became? His response: “Yes with strategic planning and grass root marketing. Grind smart, not hard.” After the success of “Dance like a Stripper”, M.E. followed up with his next single “Hydrolics” which Chris Brown was seen vibin’ to “Hydrolics” at a club in Dallas. “Dance like a Stripper” is def one of my favorites that stays in rotation in my playlist.
