Benjamin Zephaniah (?).... and interesting fact > - Dreadlocks been around a very long time before 1900's. So possible and interesting.

"Some of the earliest depictions of dreadlocks date back as far as 3600 years to the Minoan Civilization, one of Europe's earliest civilizations, centered in Crete (now part of Greece). Frescoes discovered on the Aegean island of Thera (modern Santorini, Greece) depict individuals with long braided hair or long dreadlocks."
