When you bear an uncanny resemblance to the ex-president of the United States of America, then you should be used to the constant fuss and attention. That’s the case of a tour-guide and 43-year-old father of 5, Jose Oliveira, who revealed that he cannot go a day without people mobbing him for selfies due to his resemblance to ex-President Barack Obama.
Jose, from Sal in Cape Verde, says people even ask him if he is Obama’s brother. ‘I find it very funny and I don’t mind posing for photographs,’ Oliveira said.
“I 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.”
Jose has never worked as an Obama lookalike but says he would consider it if given the opportunity.
Obama and his wife Michelle have been spotted on several holidays since he was succeeded by Donald Trump as president in November. In March, the former First Couple were seen enjoying the rays on their vacation to the French Polynesian islands.
