Nigerian filmmaker, Chima Okoroji has lamented over how people mistake him for music superstar, David Adeleke aka Davido.
In an interview with the Nation, Chima Okoroji shared some of the unpleasant encounters he has had with people especially kids who thought he is Davido because of their resemblance.
He made it clear that he grossly dislikes how people perceive he is Davido when they meet him and he outlined the contrasts between him and the DMW Records founder as he stated that he is light-skinned and looks older while Davido is dark.

He said in his statement:
“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.”
