A Nollywood filmmaker, Chima Okoroji has made a passionate plea to people who mistake him for popular music sensation, Davido after several unfavourable incidents.
Okoroji, who has been serially embarrassed about the mistaken identity, said he has been severally called Davido even when he doesn’t see any form of resemblance with the Omo Baba Olowo.
He said: “My brother, I don’t know whether it is this beard or something else. I am fair complexioned and I look older, I don’t know why people especially kids think I am Davido.
*The other day at the fuel station watching the metre, some kids inside their parent’s car, I guess, pointed at me calling me Davido and people started looking in my direction.
“My saving grace was that my tank got filled on time and I zoomed off. At the supermarket, the same thing happened. I was crossing the road some time ago, the same thing happened. I wish I am as rich as Davido, and then I can really enjoy the fame. Na wah o.”
Okoroji to his credit has box office hits such as African Bride, Hooked, Breaking Cord, Teaser, among others.
