After only months since his last name change, the former Portmore Empire member, Ryno Di Stinger, has changed his name yet again.
This time he drops ‘Di Stinger’ and now goes simply by the name Ryno.
The move he said, was made with the future of his musical career in mind.

Yuh know I originally got that name from the song I did for Notnice of the Portmore Empire on the Remand rhythm a while back. Now dem a pree seh is a gang affiliated name mi have. So after thinking about it with management we made the decision,” said Ryno.
