Tell us about the best Jamaican meal you've ever had.

CK: It would be my father's fried dumplings with ackee and saltfish. I fly home to Jamaica at least three times a year, and it's the first requested dish. The first bite brings me back to a simpler time before life was life-ing…

Who's the last person you texted?

CK: Alex, my neighbour and fellow Jamaican.

If you could switch lives with any celebrity for a day, who would it be and why?

CK: Drake. He’s the most commercially successful rapper of my generation. I'd be curious to know what it’s like to reach those types of heights in life and how he remains sane knowing he can provide himself with anything he wants with minimal effort. Also, I would love to see what one of his studio sessions would be like.
