(Caribbean Loop) – London-based Music Executive Riki Bleau is the only Dominican to make it to the 2023 Powerlist, an annual directory of the 100 most influential people of African or African Caribbean heritage in the United Kingdom.  

First launched in 2007, the Powerlist highlights the work of Black leaders in several professional sectors. 

“It’s really an honour to be on this esteemed list,” says Bleau.

“As the son of immigrants it makes me proud to have achieved this and I hope that it can inspire not only UK citizens of Dominican descent, but born-and-bred Dominicans too that there really is no limit to your talent and that there is a reward for your efforts.”

Bleau was listed under the category Media, Publishing, Entertainment and Sports, joining the likes of footballers Raheem Sterling whose roots are Jamaican and Marcus Rashford whose family hails from St. Kitts; as well as actors Sir Lenny Henry (of Jamaican heritage) Idris Elba OBE (of Sierra Leonian/Ghanian heritage), Michaela Coel (of Ghanian roots), and Daniel Kaluuya (whose family is from Uganda).
