Soca Star Kees Dieffenthaller Debuts New Look, Stuns Fans
Earlier this week, Trinidad and Tobago’s Kees Dieffenthaller of Kes the Band, who is known for his iconic locs which he sported for more than a decade, did something that almost stopped the press and stunned his scores of fans: he posted a photograph to his Facebook page loc-free.

Do we see a little bit of the rapper Common in this new look?
We think he looks gorgeous either way.
