Music is a powerful storytelling vehicle, one that often comes underappreciated in this day and age. There are many compelling stories out there to be told. Stories of struggle and success, most of which tell of the current socio-political climate of our world. Roodjery Roger has a riveting tale plucked out of his real-life experiences, and he is voicing it out to the world through his music under the name BonezRoger.
Straight out of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, BonezRoger was a baby from a bloodline of spiritual individuals, most especially in the realm of voodoo. However, he was also born out of the streets taking refuge in a life that’s been heavily influenced by violence. After witnessing the murder of his own father, Guaryl Roger, who died at the age of 33, BonezRoger and his brother Kilo Foreign fled the scene while one of the gunmen was shooting at them.
BonezRoger caught a bullet on his left arm, yet he kept running and eventually got away. His mother, who was currently residing in the United States, made arrangements to have him and his brother move to the land of opportunity by 2002. By the grace of God, they landed in Miami, but the trauma of witnessing his father’s death never left him.
The rising artist began rapping when he was 11 years old. Naturally drawn to the streets, BonezRoger was kicked out of elementary school and had to go to alternative schools. Unfortunately, the street life caught up with him, and he underwent a level six program for an entire year. Once he was released, BonezRoger would get locked back up a few months later and went to a level 8 program.
Fortunately, he graduated high school after being a star football player. Once he graduated, he went to colleges in Miami, Ohio, who was willing to take him undergrad, but he was headed to prison yet again. After eight years, BonezRoger has maintained his freedom and is headed towards stardom.
“After doing seven years in prison, ICE picked me up, but I’ve been in America since eight as an asylee,” said BonezRoger. “Of course, I came legally. My loved ones and I fought, being led by our God,” he added.
Assisted by a great friend and a great human being, Roger Khan, BonezRoger finally felt at home in the United States.
“I’ve been home since November 12, 2019. I’ve already worked with major players in the industry like Grammy-winning producer Kevin Carbo, who’s currently with Universal and recently produced a song for Justin Bieber and DaBaby,” expressed BonezRoger.
There is so much more work to be done, but BonezRoger is extremely thankful to be alive and well. Nowadays, he is looking to share his captivating story with the world through his music. In the near future, the rising musical artist hopes to find great success and become a multi-millionaire in the process. He wants his audience to know that anything is possible if they just hold on to their dreams and put God first.To know more about the amazing BonezRoger and his remarkable story, make sure to check out his official website.
