Meet Toheeb, the hilarious celebrity impersonator

Toheeb Adedokun Akorede who is known all over the internet as "Funny Toheeb" is a young Nigerian man who impersonates celebrities by recreating their looks.

Unlike the celebrities, he employs relatively cheap materials. He claims his main focus is to make people laugh and bring them out of depression. That is nice of him.

Below is a picture of him

In an interview with BBC he said, "Sometimes when I don't know what to do with the pictures, I just listen to music and go through the pictures. I then develop a strategy for making the work extra-ordinary".

"It is not a day job. I spend weeks on some pictures trying to replicate them. Sometimes we (he and his squad) work all night, sometimes the material will be around, you just have to look around for it", he said.

He has been famous all over the internet. Cardi B recognized him when he recreated her clothes sometime ago. She fell in love with his hilarious craft and posted it on her Instagram page. Toheeb is really going places, I feel happy for him.

He claims he wasn't born with a silver spoon and he actually wants to be the person who will change the story of his family. This is what motivates him to keep working each and every day.

"My mother is very supportive, she always tells me to think outside the box", he added

Toheeb is hoping to be a celebrity oneday.
