Artistic, motivated, expressive, innovative, energetic, rousing and humble-Roobens Steve “Rooby Man” Dieujuste hails from the island of Haiti. As a pre-teen, Rooby Man realized his artistry in his affinity for music and a naturally dynamic stage presence. As a youth, Rooby Man was asked to join the Haitian boy band “King of Kings”.

Soon after, playing for hundreds of thousands of locals and tourists, they became the winning band in Carnival and were crowned “Most Popular Artist” in the youth category. Eventually, the group disbanded and Rooby Man moved to Chicago. Almost immediately, Rooby Man was asked to join the local band Sakad, later renamed D-Lux.
