Oftentimes, it is said that there is always a person’s look-alike somewhere in the world. This saying was proved during the MTNCelebdouble. The competition was organised by the telecommunication company for their brand ambassadors to meet people that bore the same resemblance with them.
It was a party filled with fun and excitement mixed with suspense in Lagos, Benin and Enugu as it was hard differentiating between most of the musical superstars and their close splitting images.
This resulted in momentary suspense, mixed with fun, as the hundreds of musical fans who thronged separate clubs, to be part of the invasion, struggled to spot the real image. The fans were thrilled to meet their idolised celebrities and the ‘doubles.’
In Lagos, the party held at the ‘The Place.’ While the music was on at full blast, Don Jazzy, Iyanya, Tiwa Savage and Chidinma walked in. The crowd was soon amazed as the striking resemblances of Davido, Wizkid, Praiz and D’Prince stepped in behind them. There were minutes of debates if they were the real ambassadors or the look-alikes they had come to party with. Wizkid’s double, Mbaefo Stanley, who resides in Port Harcourt, could not hold his joy at the sight of the celebrities and the pomp around him. He expressed cheerfully, ‘this is one of my best nights.’
Also, Ogbonna John who resides in Lagos, was ecstatic. He said, ‘I have always dreamed of this moment.’
David Fortune, D’Prince’s double and Odeka Arthur who looked like the Nigerian R & B singer and Headies Award winner, Praiz, said they would treasure the night for a long time.
Meanwhile, Iyanya, who wore a new look, enthusiastically appreciated the large turnout, saying it gave him satisfaction to party with Nigerian fans and find someone who looked like him. Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage also expressed the same feeling while leaving the club located on Adeola Odeku in the early hour of the morning.
In Benin, the celebdoubles bore an unbelievable resemblance to the actual celebs themselves. Prior to the actual party, they had been lodged in a luxury hotel, taken on a shopping spree and given a high-class spa treatment.
One of the Celebdoubles was AdeoyeFoyinsade who bears a striking resemblance to Tiwa Savage. She gushed over the entire privileges accorded her by MTN.
“I really didn’t expect that it would be this cool. Not only do I look like Tiwa Savage, from the way I have been treated all day, I think I might be her!”
