Look-alikes are something I never get tired of seeing. The fact that two people look very similar and may not even know each other is extremely intriguing to me. That is, perhaps somewhere in Mali, there is someone who looks almost identical to me. When you think about it, that’s a really fun thought.
Look-alikes are everywhere, and while they are often people from the same location (such as the same state or nation), some people share resemblances with people from different continents.
We’ll look at five popular faces from Nigeria and America who, surprisingly, look similar.
- Future and Oge Okoye
This one is hilarious because you can never unsee it once you’ve seen it. This realization first became popular in 2016 when someone shared the image below. It took off from there.
- Melanie Fiona and Joy Nice
Melanie Fiona and Joy Nice (Pelumi from Jenifa’s Diary) are two other celebrities who bear an uncanny resemblance. These two looks exemplify the phrase “cut from the same cloth.”
- Tonto Dikeh and Lottie “The Body” Tatum-Graves
Lottie “The Body” Tatum-Graves was an American burlesque dancer who performed from the late 1940s to the early 1980s before passing away last February. When her death was announced and pictures of her in her younger years surfaced, Nigerians couldn’t help but notice a striking resemblance to our very own Tonto Dikeh. The similarity is undeniable!
- DMX and Ikechukwu
Another classic that we will never forget is the resemblance between American rapper DMX and Nigerian rapper Ikechukwu. The two men resemble identical twins. The resemblance between them is undeniable.
- Keke Palmer and Chacha Eke
Another pair of people who Nigerians have compared are American actress Keke Palmer and Nigeria’s own Chacha Eke. The image that sparked this discussion is shown below.
