Top 30: Jamaican Public Figures Who Age Well


In other cultures, public figures are often slaves to the cosmetic industry.  A little nip tuck here, a little botox there and enhancements everywhere and anywhere in between.  However, in Jamaica, people pride themselves on being able to ‘look good’ and age gracefully while remaining as youthful as they possibly can.  These 30 Jamaicans seem to have found the fountain of youth and are maturing like fine wine.

# 30) Neville Bell

IMG_8697You have been waking up to him on Smile Jamaica for years.  His career in media started over two decades ago and yet somehow he has managed to look pretty much the same. Guess all that football playing is paying off.

#29) P. J. Patterson

Hon__PJ_Patterson_photoLargeCan you believe that he is 78 years of age? Mr. Patterson served as the sixth prime minister of Jamaica and led the country from 1992 to 2006.  This man became the face that this generation associated with politics, and to honest, he looks exactly as he did during the 90s.

# 28)   Michael Lee Chin

# 27) Kerlyn Brown

The day Kerlyn leaves CVM TV is the day that station should come off air.  She has been the face of the 8:00 pm news since the 90s and she gets hotter and hotter each year.

# 26) Lady Saw

Lady-Saw-2013The Queen of the dancehall, Mumma Saw, at age 45 is looking sexier and more refined than most of the emerging dancehall ladies half her age.

# 25) Amelia Milk Sewell

# 24) Sean Paul

Sean_Paul_Sue_Susanne_Persson_girlfriendDancehall superstar, Sean Paul at the moment could pass for a 29 year old, but if you were to check his birth paper you’d discover that he is a 40 yrs old…. Buju Banton is the same age. See the difference?

# 23) Beenie Man

Beenie-image-620x330 (1)The ‘Girls Dem Sugar’ , at 39 is probably the youngest looking grandfather in Jamaica.

# 22) Ken Boothe

ken-boothe-n1-kingston-jamaica+1152_12842568492-tpfil02aw-18198This 65 years old reggae icon seems to have been sheltered from that storm called aging.

#21) Fae Ellington

faeThis woman’s glow is the source of her youthful appearance. Always radiant. Always charming. 60 and still looking sweet.

# 20) KD Knight

602980_212052902283156_1216262982_nDoesn’t he look exactly the same now as he did when you were a child?

#19) Dorraine Samuels

brrMiss RJR, now Miss Prime Time News. She is as gorgeous and she was at the beginning of her career.

# 18) Michael Anthony Cuffe

Michael A Cuffe -- JYP

Y’all remember in the 90s when he used to host the morning show on CVM TV?

# 17) Mazie Miller/Dorothy Lightbourne

mazzz

 Mazie Miller aka Miss Creative Cooking has been hosting that show for over two decades. Dorothy on the other hand, has spent her life in politics.  I still cannot believe that she is 76 years old.

# 16) Delano- Renaissance

 The Renaissance sound system has been around for years yet Delano’s appearing younger than many of the new disc jocks. Weird isn’t it?

# 15) Cindy Breakspeare

S195-6

58 and still looking as fab as she did back in 1976 when she won the Miss World crown.

# 14) Shaggy

Will.I.Am's Annual TRANS4M Concert Benefitting I.Am.Angel Foundation - Red Carpet

Mr. Boombastic , at 44, looks younger than many of the current dancehall acts,

# 13) Tony Matterhorn

Yes, Tony Matterhorn is actually 41 years old. Surprised?

#12)  Audrey Reid

AudreyReidE20091124RB

Popular Jamaican actress, Audrey Reid , at 43, doesn’t look any different than she did when she played the sassy role of Marcia in Dancehall Queen. I guess black really doesn’t crack.

# 11) Carlene Davis

IMG_2327

God is really working on this woman because age 60 never looked this good.

# 10) Ian Boyne

IanBoyne

For over 25 years, Ian Boyne has been interviewing people on his popular television show Profile.  I dare you to find an old Profile video and compare it to how he looks presently.  Time has been good to him.

# 9) Merlene Ottey

 Sprint Queen and Jamaican treasure, Ottey is the epitome of determination. Oh and by the way, she is 53 years of age.

# 8 ) Professor Nuts

“You are only as old as you feel” and this 51 year old dancehall veteran not only feels young, he looks it.

# 7) Marcia Griffiths

marcia-griffiths2

Over six decades on this earth and she is still glowing. Sweet reggae music must be the reason.

# 6) Kiprich/Ding Dong

These two men somehow have no intention of aging any time soon.  Both began their professional careers over 15 years ago.

# 5) Portia Simpson-Miller

portia_simpson_miller1

Portia is just three years shy off 70. Just look at her.

# 4) Jenny Jenny

 Media personality, Jenny Jenny, at 37 just keeps looking better and better.

# 3 ) Cham

Cham

 Does Cham look like at 34 year old? Nope. I guess that’s what happens when your wife ‘Tun up, Tun up’.

# 2) Denise Hunt

Denise Hunt1

 I have a feeling her face will remain like this for the next thirty years.  Did y’all know she had a role in How Stella Got Her Groove Back?

# 1) Lisa Hanna

Lisa Hanna

 Lisa Hanna, Oh Lisa Hanna.  Why must you age in reverse? “No primples, no mosquito bite”. Miss World 1993 must be on some vampire diet because not many people can say they look better now than they did when they won a world title. Lisa Rene Hanna at 37, you are a timeless… ageless beauty.

    How coincidental! I just saw PJ Patterson on the news & said the same ting to myself – dis man looks the same as he looked wen I was a child. Very true, Ian Boyne looks the same as well… I had the same thoughts wen they featured Lisa Hannah at the grand gala – she does age in reverse.. Oh! Lisa was also in “how stella got her groove back” with Denise Hunt.. Matterhorn is 41?? *shocked*
