ARTIST ON THE RISE: MAXIMUS WEL
Meet emerging artist Maximus Wel. When I walked into Nevarez Communications to meet Maximus he greeted me with a warm smile and hug. Right off the bat I knew he was going to be really nice and down to earth… a rare commodity in the world of entertainment these days. I then set my camera up and asked the young talent in what language he was comfortable speaking in and he answered Spanish, which of course was no surprise. I usually like to ask the talent that because even though I speak Spanish fluently, I tend to forget some words and sometimes find myself having a hard time communicating what I want to say so it turns into a ‘Spanglish’ interview.
Welvin Gómez, better known as Maximus Wel, was born in the town of Cauga in Puerto Rico and raised in San Lorenzo. Maximus was a proud member of the Boys and Girls club in Puerto Rico and took an interest in the performing arts and attended acting classes at the club. During his time with the Boys & Girls club, Wel discovered another passion; music. He decided to pursue his artistic ambition and got his start in the music industry a decade ago.
He released his first single in 2010 titled “Voy Escuchando Voces” in collaboration with urban artist Kendo Kaponi. Later in 2013 went on to release another single “Se Acabo El Tiempo” alongside Maluma-who hadn’t reached his stardom status yet- and J Alvarez.
