You’d think she was the young Naomi Campbell. So alluring are her grace and charm. But the beautiful new songster is actually a tropical girl. Born to a Guyanese-Surinamese-Barbadian father and a mother of German extraction, Onika Rollins, stage named Onirose, bloomed in sunny Guyana before making Germany her home. Onirose is an anagram which conflates her first and last name with the genus of her favourite flower: Onika-Rollins-Rose. The alias, like her heritage, is a mesh of significance. It reflects her reverence for life and the family she adores. The singer herself has such a gentle nature, who could grudge us for calling her a rose?
