Upon being handed N500 note, the masquerade rolls on the floor like someone being delivered of a demon by a pastor in appreciation and to further draw sympathy.

Masquerade that looks like Nigerian rapper Phyno
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a masquerade that looked like rapper Phyno had caused stir on social media.
A tweep had stunned the internet with a funny looking picture he stumbled upon. The picture captured a masquerade alongside some followers.
However, the masquerade was not just any random one but one that looked just like a popular indigenous rapper, Phyno.
It donned a mask that was painted just like the rapper’s face and it also had ‘Highway’ boldly written on the forehead. Highway is Phyno’s hit single with DJ Kaywise.
Sharing the photo with his followers, @drdakonxept hilariously noted that the rapper has been elevated to the status of a god in Igbo land.
