Watch: Jamaican ditches Queen’s English, embraces patois on Family Feud Canada

A Jamaican brought authentic Jamaican vibes to Family Feud Canada when embraced the Jamaican patois while introducing his family on the TV show.

After introducing himself to the audience, speaking in the Queen’s English, Wayne Reid, who owns a Jamaican restaurant in Brampton, then switched to Jamaican patois before introducing his family. “Mek mi change tingz!” he shouted. “Wah Gwaan, Gerry?” he then asked the host, Gerry Dee.

Reid introduced his son Justin, the owner of a barbershop, and his daughters Cassandra, Stephanie, and Felisha before they all compete to guess the most popular answers of family-friendly survey questions, with a Canadian twist.

Reid also yelled some Jamaican slangs throughout the family show which aired on Canada’s CBC network last Sunday, March 15, 2020.
