Over the years, the issue of why certain people who are not related by blood seem alike has remained unanswered. As far as I can tell, there hasn’t been any scientific explanation for this save chance and cognitive bias.
That is to say, because there are only a few types of structures that make up a normal human face, and there are billions of people on the planet, it’s not surprising that unrelated individuals end up looking alike by chance or otherwise. That is to say, we are biased into thinking the same way when people post pictures of their look alikes.
When it comes to celebrities, though, lookalikes are more significant. The following is a list of female celebrities that resemble each other so closely that one could believe they are related.
1. Jennifer Ibekwe and Destiny Etiko
Jennifer Ibekwe and Destiny Etiko are both Nigerian actresses. Although the later is more popular, quite a lot of persons mistake Destiny Etiko for Jennifer Ibekwe because of their striking resemblance especially as regards facial features.
However, Jennifer Ibekwe is a little fairer than Etiko. She also has a birth mark on her left cheek and this has indeed served to distinguish between the two.
2. Linda Osifo and Tolu Bally
These two have oft times been termed ‘unbiological twins’, because of their similar appearance both shapely and facially. Notwithstanding, the two have different lines of profession.
While Linda Osifo is an actress, model and brand ambassador, the later (her lookalike), Tolu is an award winning fashion entrepreneur and designer. Linda is however, one of the various patronizers of Tolu’s work.
Moreover, the fact that they are close friends and are often times seen together may have biased our minds into thinking they are related to each other.
3. Ini Edo and Queen Wokoma
Another set of actresses who have a striking resemblance to each other is Ini Edo and Queen Wokoma. Having almost the same body, one would even say that they are the same persons and not twins.
However, despite being called Ini Edo’s lost sister, there is a very thin line of difference between the two. While Queen has a little longer face, Ini Edo sure does have a round face and more hips.
