Billy & Naomi is a Trinidadian duo of entertainers made up of husband and wife Billy and Naomi Wong. The couple launched “Marriage & Music” in September of 2020. Due to the Corona Virus pandemic Mr. and Mrs. Wong decided to spread a little seasonal joy through their music. Naomi Mohammed first met Billy Wong when he came to her home to “house parang” with some members of Rio Suave in 2005, but it wasn’t until September of the following year when Naomi joined A La Rio Suave that she and Billy were formally introduced.
The two dated for eight years and got married in 2013.

Her affiliation with Live Styles, the band, unlocked opportunities for Naomi to perform backup for Reggae artistes such as Million Voice, Isasha, Ziggy Ranking, Jah Melody, Mr. King, King David, Jah Z Blaze and many more.
Billy Wong’s musical background started when he was a young boy “paranging” with his uncles. This peaked his interest in parang music and as good fortune would have it, he was then trained by the great Robert Monroe and got the opportunity to perform in many shows with the icon.
