He miraculously survived the ordeal and was raised at the Maxfield Home orphanage, Eventide Home and the famous Alpha Boys School, a Catholic-run vocational residential school on South Camp Road in Kingston, Jamaica. He experienced a tormenting childhood for he was shunned from society, scorned by his peers, but was able to overcome all the negativity thrown at him due to his skin colour and embraced his uniqueness calling himself Yellowman. Turning a blind eye to stigma and put-downs uttered to him, the proudly “yellow man” went on to win Jamaica’s annual Tastee Talent contest in 1979 performing “Barnabus Killing”, and a year later, his music started hitting the airwaves all across the island.

Being albino, he can’t be exposed to the sun — I can’t hang out with friends or go outside most of the time. It then came to a point where it became so toxic that he said to himself, “How long are you going to keep this up? How long are you gonna wallow in things that you can’t change?” It was then when he decided that it’s time he embrace it and just rock it.
