"Look at me now, " is what Reggae artiste Nesbeth says but one is almost certain that  fellow artiste Romain Virgo is singing a similar song.

Virgo who rose to fame in 2007 after winning the Digicel Rising Stars talent show has not slowed down since.

On Thursday Virgo posted a picture to his Facebook and Instgram pages, that has since garnered a great deal of attention.

In the photo, a young Virgo is sporting his school khaki. 

Though fans were amazed to see that not much changed about Virgo in terms of appearance, it was his caption, that had tongues wagging.

"This was my first day at Aabuthnott Gallimore High back in 2002. The shirt and pants belonged to my older brother, Marlon. At the time mom just couldn't afford to buy me my own uniform, and the shoes were for both School and Church. But look at the smile on my face! #‎Content," he wrote.

Virgo is perhaps one of the most sought after reggae singers in Jamaica and has often been compared to a young Beres Hammond.

So when Nesbeth says, "look at me now," just know he tells a story of not just himself but many others.
