Impersonation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery. Someone who admires something may wish to recreate it for themselves. In this list, we’ll look at six occasions when Nigerian celebrities dressed up as American celebrities and compare who looked better.
1. Lilian Afegbai vs Cardi B
Lilian Afegbai, a Nollywood actress, celebrated her birthday by posting pictures from her birthday photoshoot, in which she was seen wearing an outfit very similar to an outfit worn by American rapper Cardi B.
The only difference between the outfits is that Cardi B’s is red with red feathers, and Lilian Afegbai’s is blue with blue feathers. So, based on both outfits, who did it better?
2. Nengi vs Beyonce
Nengi Hampson, a Big Brother reality TV star, is yet another person who has decided to recreate an outfit worn by American singer Beyonce. Nengi not only recreated the look, but she also recreated the shot. Who do you think did it better, based on both outfits?
3. Beauty vs Beyonce
This year’s Big Brother Naija contestant Beauty is yet another Big Brother Naija reality star who decided to recreate a look by American singer Beyonce.
4. Bisola vs Beyonce
They are not the only Big Brother Naija celebrities to imitate the iconic American singer, Beyonce. Another BBNaija star, Bisola Aiyeola, posed for her rendition of a classic Beyonce look.
5. Toke Makinwa vs Jennifer Lopez
Toke Makinwa, a Nigerian socialite and OAP, famously recreated the iconic Versace gown that American singer Jennifer Lopez wore and popularised. Some praised Toke’s efforts, saying she looked even more divine in the dress than J.LO, while others disagreed.
6. Rukky Sanda vs Ciara
Rukky Sanda, a Nollywood actress, wore a deep-plunging short gown similar to the one American singer Ciara wore on the red carpet.
