Celebrity's that look alike in Nig.

To the left is Gentle Jack

He is often referred to as Nollywood's Macho man – Mr Gentle Jack. Gentle Jack a.k.a Vuga hails from Abonnema in Kalabari kingdom of Rivers State.
Gentle Jack joined Nollywood in the 90s through the help of his brother Gbasemi Tariah, his first film is 'Blood Money' since then he had featured in countless films including 'Vuga,' the movie that brought him to lime light and most of his close friends call him Vuga.
He has also played a lead role in a movie titled Gentle Jack.
The movie which was directed by Simisola Ogbeluwa and produced by Uzor Ikpechi is about a hero who went ahead to get back what belongs to him. He played the lead character called Gentle Jack which is a double kudos for him as the title of the movie and his real name are the same.
For those watching Gentle Jack in movies, his macho physique is one invaluable asset he has as his stock in trade. Depending on what the producer wanted and the kind of film that he would be used for, the macho actor is capable of altering his shape to suit the dictate of the film.To him, keeping a particular shape would not be too appropriate for a actor whose role varies from hard ones to some he has to play a gentle and good fellow in films.The Kalabari-born actor who has this notion at the back of his mind would do all within his means to ensure that he not only remain relevant in Nollywood but also be able to negotiate good term with those who need his services as an actor.“As an actor who does the kind of things I do in movie, you don't have to keep yourself in a particular size. You have to adjust your shape from time to time so as to fit in.”Stressing on how this can be achieved Jack said, “I can get my size bigger if a producer wants such size for the film he intends shooting provided we strike a good bargain.”

To the left is Ayo Makun AY


Today, Wednesday, August 19, is the birthday of Ayo Makun, aka AY, the Comedian, MC, Actor, Director, Producer, and incredible Enterpreneur.


There are a few things we know about AY, like his regularly sold out comedy show, AY LIVE, but here are a few other things you didn't know about the 36-year-old.


1. He is from Ondo State:


Contrary to popular opinion, Ayo Makun is not an indigene of Delta State, although he was born and bred there. His upbringing probably influenced him into finding his funny bone, considering a huge chunk of comedians in Nigeria have links with Delta State, especially Warri.


 


2. It took him nine years to graduate from University:


Ayo graduated from Delta State University after a whopping 9 years. But even at the time of graduating, he already made a mark among his friends as a comedian and entertainer.

3. He used to be a P.A to Ali Baba:


Generally seen as the Godfather of Nigerian Comedy, Ali Baba employed AY as a Personal Assistant and Event Manager. The skills Ayo acquired working for his former employer was probably what shaped his approach to the comedy industry.





Alibaba is regarded as one of the greatest entertainers to come out of Africa.
