“It is good for business,” says Cape Verdean Tour Guide who looks just like Barack Obama | See Photos

In Cape Verde, off the Northwest coast of Africa, is a 43-year old Tour Guide Jose Oliveira who looks just like the 44th and first black president of the United States of America, Barack Obama.

“Ever since Barack Obama was made president I have had people stopping me to tell me I look like him, so it has been happening for almost 10 years now. Some people even ask me if I am his brother,” he told The Sun UK.

“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.

President Obama is a good man, so I like it when people compare me to him. It is also good for business.

I never try to dress like Obama or copy him in any way, I am just myself, but people still stop to tell me how much I look like him.

I have never thought about working as an Obama lookalike before, but maybe I would if given the opportunity. If it was an honest and respectful job that allowed me to support my family I would think about it.

I have never said I look like Obama, people tell me I do, and it’s cool. But personally I say Barack Obama looks like me,” he added

      To protect his eyes! When water enters the eye, it causes soreness and discomfort hence the need for shades.

      Haven’t you noticed that professional swimmers wear shades in the Olympics.

      He can be a double in real life and movies. maybe Obama papa did double duty in Cape Verde. @Darius, those are shades not swim goggles. I think he was just goofing. those shades would not prevent water from entering his eyes.
