This is bad results of someone chemically processing their hair, which I can only assume is more tightly curled than that — now it just looks frizzy.

Didn’t see that one coming. Guess he looks “white” because Jamaicans are mixed themselves.

There are claims on the internet that his father Stephen mentioned in a 2006 Australian interview that reggae changed his life and that he ended up marrying a Jamaican woman. I haven’t found the interview, though.

His mother has a Jamaican accent in this clip, though it is not clear if it is exaggerated.
