Birth Name: Nestor Alexander Haddaway
Place of Birth: Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago
Date of Birth: 9 January, 1965
Haddaway is a Trinidadian-born German singer, songwriter, and musician. He is known for his song “What Is Love.”
His father is a marine biologist and his mother is a nurse. As a child he lived in Europe with his father, and the U.S. with his mother, settling in the Washington, D.C., area, and then living in Fort Meade, Maryland. He moved to Cologne, Germany, in his early 20s.
His father is said to be either a Dutch or “from Holland” oceanographer/marine biologist. Haddaway himself speaks Dutch, but he does not strike me as mixed race man.
