There are tons of people we see on television on a daily basis, and it seems like we know them so much. Just by watching their movies, we pick their faces so well, that we can recognize them wherever we see them.
Unfortunately, the sad truth is that looks can be very deceiving. Social media and television appearances can be packaged so well that you could mistake people for something else. From lights, to makeup, and the camera angle, you could easily miss key details of your favourite celebrities.
This is why some people meet these celebrities and realise that they look nothing like their pictures. One particular thing you can miss, is their height. Sometimes our wonderful celebrities are really short and cute, instead of tough and hot as you have been made to believe. This is not to show the shortest celebrities – Not like Aki and Pawpaw; but to show the ones who are just shorter than they are generally perceived.
While MI has continually told us about how comfortable he is with his height, it still gets tough ignoring it, when you actually see him in person. While he is rumoured to stand at 5ft’2, the truth is that he is short. In any case, he regards himself as a “short black boy”, so no hard feelings.
- Annie Idibia
This one might be quite surprising, but the wife of our dear 2Baba, is shorter than you think. If she has passed beside you before, you would be amazed at the power of the big screen. While Annie isn’t ordinarily so short, she sends of the illusion of being taller that she actually is. This picture with MI should put it in perspective.
Another short superstar, is one Nigerian-International act, Wizkid. Even from watching his performance and videos on the screen, you can tell that he is not a tall person. However, his height can also easily be miscalculated. Wizkid is short and he is even shorter in personal. Good thing he has the money and swag to work with it.
- Samantha Walsh
This single mother is one of those that could completely confuse you when it comes to her height. With a son, it is clear that Samantha is no small child. However, while people keep picking on her for her weight, the truth is that she is generally a small person. She could literally pass by you and you completely miss her! Television and its deceit though.
Finally, we have our young music diva, Chidinma. Rumoured to be around 5’1 or 5’2, she is part of the shortest folks on this list. But does she look like she’s the same size as Kevin hart? Nope. Thanks to heels, a lot of the women on this list do not always look as short as they actually are, but we know the truth. Chidinma has a strong voice, but she is so short, it almost gets surprising.
