Phylecia Renae has taken her love for her rich Caribbean roots and has channeled it into Di Riddim Sweet, a show that airs on CIN TV and OCTV. The show aims to propagate how Caribbean culture influences both local and worldwide businesses.
Born in Kingston Jamaica, Phylecia Renae relocated to the United Sates under the guise that she and her brother were visiting the U.S for back to school shopping; however, her visit to the U.S was long-term.
Renae’s love of the theatre and performing brought her to New York, where she discovered that good roles for black women were few and far between.
Armed with the skill of editing, Renae was determined to combine her love for her Caribbean culture, acting and theatre, meeting and talking with people on her own terms.
Having earned her bachelors degree, she went on to pursue a degree in education while she continued to explore the different ways that she could turn her passion into a reality. During her first year as a special education teacher, Renae felt a void that could only be filled by this passion. Armed with inspiration from Ms. Louise Bennett, Renae purchased camera equipment, and began reaching out to local Caribbean owned businesses. Before long, Di Riddim Sweet was born.
