Chima Okoroji, a Nollywood filmmaker, claimed in a recent interview that many people, particularly children, mistake him for famed Nigerian musician and DMW label owner David Adeleke Davido.
Chima detailed some of the unfavorable events he had to endure in a statement issued through the Nations, urging people to cease doing so.
In his statement, he stated:
“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.”
