After the assassination of Orozco, Romero took the group under his management. He was able to maintain the group’s popularity by hiring young talents and maintaining always a new style. Romero first hired Gabriel “El Gaby” García who was physically very similar to Orozco and impersonated him, the chorus was Jean Carlos Centeno and the other was Jorgito Celedón, as well as his accordionist nephew JF “El Morre” Romero. Their debut was in Venezuela in a national popular tv show contest “Premio Orquidea” which they won that year. Binomio de Oro then recorded the first album without Orozco titled “Todo Corazón (album)” featuring Romero siting along an empty chair implying that his partner was irreplaceable. The album also featured a song by Rafael Orozco titled “Solo para ti” which became an all time hit.
In 1996 Jean Carlos Centeno and Jorgito Celedon became lead singers of the Binomio de Oro along with Romero as accordionist and his nephew after Garcia’s departure. In 1999 singer Jorgito Celedon quited the group to pursue a solo career and was replaced by Junior Santiago. Later Junior Santiago and “Morre” Romero separated from the group to form their own vallenato group.
