Jumbo was born to father Marx Jumbo and mother Angela Jumbo.
Her father is a Nigerian who comes from black ethnicity, and her mother is British, who comes from a white ethnic background.
As a result, Cush comes from a mixed-ethnicity background, introducing herself as a bi-racial personality.
While Jumbo has experienced both ethnicities and has the best of both world knowledge, there have been some troubles because of the shade of her skin.
At a point in her career, she did not get a promising role in a TV show because she was too white and not black enough.

But, here’s a picture for anyone who keeps wondering how Jumbo would look like with long hair.
The first thing to get out of the way here is that this is a wig that Jumbo’s wearing.
For as long as we remember, Jumbo has not sported a long hairstyle. And honestly, there’s no need for that as well.
Her short curly hair gives her a bold look. And moreover, it helps her showcase her Nigerian background as well.
