Several Nigerian celebrities who entered the limelight have won over the hearts of many fans with their talents as entertainers as well as their stunning looks.
However, most of these celebrities have their mother's strong genes to thank for their looks.
Legit.ng highlights six Nigerian stars who share a resemblance with their mother.
Check them out below:
1. Regina Daniels
Asides from sharing a strong passion for acting, Regina also shares a striking resemblance with her mother, Rita Daniels. The Nollywood mother and daughter have been in the news recently over Rita's reported wedding to her younger lover.
2. Tonto Dikeh
Tonto Dikeh is undoubtedly the spitting image of her late mum, Veronica Dikeh. The Nollywood star has done well to keep the memory of her late mum alive 30 years after she passed away in September of 1989 - when Tonto was only a kid.
Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) star Khafi Kareem is another Nigerian reality star who looks like her mother.
The reality star who lost her brother in 2020, has been very intentional about putting up family appreciation posts, especially about her mother.
Below is an example of such posts:
4. Burna Boy
The self-acclaimed African giant shares a stunning resemblance with his 'momager' Bose Ogulu.
Burna Boy, who does not play when it comes to family, appears to be very close to his mother who has contributed immensely to his success as a Grammy-award singer.
The DMW singer is another Nigerian celebrity who looks like his mother. Mayorkun's mother, Toyin Adewale, also happens to be a famous Yoruba movie actress who is pretty supportive of the singer and often promotes his songs via her Instagram page.
6. Mercy Aigbe
One does not have to look long and hard to see the striking resemblance between Mercy Aigbe and her beautiful mum, Abisola Grace Owodunni.
The Nollywood actress and businesswoman who rarely posts her mum on social media is undoubtedly a younger version of her elegant mother.
