List of Nigerian Celebrities Who Look-Alike


Having a look-alike is something most people dislike while a few others love to hear that they look like someone, especially if the person is reputable and famous.

But when two famous people look-alike it becomes more interesting. Two actors who look-alike can even be cast as siblings or parent and child, depending on their age difference.

Often times, when two celebs look-alike, the one who attained fame first is most times seen as the original while the next is tagged an imposter or a duplicate. This may not be the case in this list, they are all originals, unique to themselves.
