The Voice, Britain’s leading black newspaper, has reported that Andrew Ramroop has been awarded an OBE by HM The Queen this seo companies year!
Ramroop was born in Trinidad & Tobago and was the first black tailor shop on Savile Row, the iconic street in London that has created bespoke clothes for men for decades.
Congrats to him. I think it’s fab news. There is contention amongst the black community here as to whether black people should accept awards from the Empire like the OBE. The OBE stands for Order of the The British Empire. Personally, I think if people see themselves as Black British, then accepting an OBE should not be a big deal.
I am not Black British but living here for so long has made me realise what a big deal this is. Again, Congrats to him!
