(PIC SHOWS: JOSE OLIVEIRA IS A TOUR GUIDE IN CAPE VERDE WHO LOOKS LIKE BARACK OBAMA)
A dad-of-five who bears an uncanny resemblance to former US president Barack Obama has revealed how he can't step outside without someone mistaking him for the former leader of the free world.
Jose Oliveira, 43, looks so much like Obama that he cannot go a day without people stopping him in the street to take photographs â and he has even been given the nickname 'Mr Obama' by friends and family.
Tour guide Jose, from Sal, Cape Verde, said: âEver since Barack Obama was made president I have had people stopping me to tell me I look like him, so it has been happening for almost 10 years now. Some people even ask me if I am his brother.
âI work as a tour guide so I am always meeting new people and their reaction is always the same.
As soon as they see me they say: 'Oh my God, you look just like Obama!' I find it very funny and I don't mind posing for photographs with people. I have at least 15 photographs and selfies taken every day.â
Jose has never worked as an Obama lookalike, but says he would consider it if given the opportunity.
Look-alike photos are really becoming the sensation of the internet. Few days ago, it was the story of Reza Parastesh, an iranian student that looks so much like football star, Lionel Messi. The resemblance almost landed him in jail for disrupting public order.
This time, it is a dad-of-five who bears an uncanny resemblance to former US president Barack Obama. He said he can’t step outside without someone mistaking him for the former US leader.
