- Akpororo & Vinicius Junior: When Real Madrid winger, Vinicius Junior opened the scoring in the last El Clasico, many Nigerian football fans could see the face of their popular comedian, Akpororo in him. I bet Akpororo could line-up for Real Madrid and the Galactico fans won’t spot the difference between him and their Brazilian forward.
- Lil Kesh & Marcus Rashford: Although Nigerian rapper, Ololade Keshinro aka Lil Kesh is 3-years older than Manchester United forward, they still look so much like blood-related brothers. Both famous faces have a striking resemblance even though Lil Kesh has left the afro-hairstyle which Rashford rocks for dreadlocks. The YAGI label CEO could represent Marcus Rashford in a Manchester United photoshoot even though he can’t strike the ball like the England forward.
- Akanmu ‘KOledowo & Paul Pogba: If you’re a follower of Yoruba Nollywood movies produced in the late 90s then you would see the late Yoruba comic actor, popularly known as ‘Koledowo’ had some resemblance with football star, Paul Pogba. If the Guinea-born footballer had some Nigerian background, we could have guessed if he’s a relative of the Nollywood actor of blessed memories.
- Saheed Osupa & Romelu Lukaku: Inter Milan forward, Romelu Lukaku may be few meters taller, he has a striking resemblance with Nigerian fuji artist, Saheed Osupa. Several times we’ve heard football fans say the Belgian look like the Nigerian musician. Jordan Lukaku, brother of Romelu doesn’t have much of the resemblance when compared with Saheed Osupa.
- Fawazzy & Steven Pienaar: Nigerian hip-hop singer, Fawazzy completes this list of Nigerian celebrities who look like famous footballers. If you’ve seen the musical video of ‘Jailer’ by Fawazzy then you would think ex-Everton star, Steven Pienaar has joined the Nigerian music industry. Only few could doubt Fawazzy if he shows up in a ‘Bafana Bafana’ of South Africa kit as Steven Pienaar. The two handsome men are just identical.
