Contest: Who Am I?
Just giving you guys a little something to ponder…this ’80’s crooner changed his name and his style, but I’m sure some of you will get this even though he’s rocking the Erykah Badu look in this photo.
UPDATE: All correct. On October 4, 2001 Terence Trent D’arby changed his name to Sananda Maitreya, saying “Terence Trent D’arby [is] dead…he watched his suffering as he died a noble death.” Not one of you were fooled by that sassy turban, so winner of best comment goes to Julian for dubbing him “Sundiata Mamakoosah” with classic “Momma call him Clay, I’mma call him Clay” finesse. And yes, IW, skin bleaching creme is a helluva drug indeed.
The pic is the cover of his album “Angels and Vampires.” Not sure which one he’s supposed to be in the photo, but my favorite single of his back in the day was “Sign Your Name,” so here it is. This video is proof that a tendril of hair across the forehead was required during the late 80’s.
