His Bio: Age, Ethnicity
The British actor was born on August 22, 1967, in Islington London, England, UK. He was abandoned by his poor parents when he was six weeks old in the hope that their son would have a better life. He was given to a white working-class family in Tilbury. But, his biological parents brought him back in Nigeria when he was eight years old, and forbade him to speak the English language.
However, he was unable to speak the Yoruba language. So, he was sent back to Tilbury to his foster parents. But, he faced racial abuse there which led him to join local skinhead gang and become a violent thief. Due to his behavior, his adoptive parents then sent him to boarding school.
Eventually, he attempted suicide when he failed to realize his existence. Gradually, he accepted himself and made a turning point in his life by achieving law degree from Kings College, London. During those days, he worked as a part-time worker in a clothes shop, where he learned about fashion and started his modeling career
