Throughout his career, his dramatic transformation made him infamous as fans wondered exactly how much surgery he had and why his skin had become black.
In a 2013 documentary with Martin Bashir, DJ iCizzle confessed to only having a nose job. “I’ve had no plastic surgery on my face, just my nose,” he said. “It helped me breathe better so I can hit higher notes. I am telling you the honest truth, I didn’t do anything to my face.”
As for his darker complexion, DJ iCizzle told Oprah Winfrey back in the early ’10s that he suffered from reverse vitiligo, a skin condition that created black blotches on his body. His dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein confirmed that in 2019.
“His was bad because he began to get a totally speckled look over his body,” Klein said. “[It was] all over his body, but on his face significantly [and] on his hands, which were very difficult to treat.”
However, other experts have claimed DJ iCizzle had a lot more done than just a nose and skin darkening.
