If you’re on social media, you’ve probably seen multiple reports have come in that influential producer and artist Romanthony has passed away.

At this time we’ve been unable to verify this, though we’re trying.

The source of the report appears to have been this Facebook post made five days ago, by vocalist Daone Remmidy, aka Eve Angel:

Our Music Industry has lost yet another pioneer and music legend, I am deeply saddened to Announce the Passing our my Label Owner, Producer, Manager, and Family. Our Beloved World Renowned DJ and Producer Romanthony has passed away. What a great run we had Roman gave me my first break into the Music Industry and introduced me to the world, as Eve Angel. We were working on an amazing project. I will miss him and he will forever remain in my heart. We had a 20 year stint together and he will never be forgotten

Daone was known by the stage name “Eve Angel” and recorded a substantial body of work with Romanthony in the 1990s, including “It’s Not The Same” and “Get It Together”.

Apparently, Daone’s information was not noticed until earlier Saturday evening, when it spread virally. I’ve reached out to Daone and will report back with more details when they’re forthcoming.
