Meet Jose Oliveira, The Cape Verdean Tour Guide Who Looks Just Like Barack Obama (photos)

Jose Oliveira, is a 43-year old tour guide in Cape Verde, off the
Northwest coast of Africa,who looks just like the 44th and first black
president of the United States of America, Barack Obama.

Ever since Barack Obama was made president I have had people stopping me
to tell me I look like him, so it has been happening for almost 10
years now. Some people even ask me if I am his brother,” he told The Sun UK.

“I
work as a tour guide so I am always meeting new people and their
reaction is always the same. As soon as they see me they say: ‘Oh my
God, you look just like Obama!’
I find it very funny and I don’t mind
posing for photographs with people. I have at least 15 photographs and
selfies taken every day.
President Obama is a good man, so I like it when people compare me to him. It is also good for business.
I never try to dress like Obama or copy him in any way, I am just
myself, but people still stop to tell me how much I look like him.
I
have never thought about working as an Obama lookalike before, but maybe
I would if given the opportunity. If it was an honest and respectful
job that allowed me to support my family I would think about it.
I
have never said I look like Obama, people tell me I do, and it’s cool.
But personally I say Barack Obama looks like me,” he added
