If Nollywood Actors Were Cartoon Characters…


September 4, 2015


We know Nollywood actors. We grew up with them. Some of them are so typecast in our minds that seeing them in other roles would almost literally kill us.

I mean, imagine Patience Ozorkwor as a good person. That is not a pretty picture.

But have you ever tried to imagine these actors as some of your favorite cartoon characters? A Zikoko community member, Kolapo Oladapo (@kpmy_), tried it and sent them in. It’s a hoot:

Phineas and Ferb vs Aki & Pawpaw

 1

Same level of mischief and an almost unshakeable commitment to making every day of their lives fun.

Cinderella’s Wicked Step Mother, Lady Tremain vs. Bukky Ajayi

 2

Yup. That’s the horrible mother figure with attitudes that make you just want to bitchslap them through the entire movie. Terrible, those two!

Wonder Woman vs Genevieve Nnaji

 3

Genevieve has never been a superhero, and she does not have super powers BUT she is beautiful and has a super perfect, fit body. If that’s not wonder woman, I don’t know what is.

Uncle Ruckus vs Mr Ibu

 10

Do you even need words for this? Not only do they look alike, they both are characters that are usually annoying in appearance, behavior, and attitude. And they’re usually anti-heroes! But they got jokes!

Crying Alice vs Nkiru Sylvanus

 5

Alice usually goes back and forth between crying and scolding herself, but Nkiru’s characters’ sole identification is usually the stream of constant tears, till the end of the movie when she marries a prince, or a rich man.

Ursula vs Patience Ozokwor

 6

In a movie, if Patience Ozokwor is the mother in law, the wife is done. She cannot make it again. And if Ursula has her tentacles in you, well, consider yourself royally screwed.

King Triton vs Pete Edochie

 9

Regal, powerful and full of wisdom, he rules the kingdom – or his family – with an iron fist.

Rafiki vs Peter Fatomilola

4

Old, frail, wise, knowledgeable witch doctors. Really old, really bent. They might not look like it, but they usually know what they’re talking about. And they’re not shy to tell you their minds.

Prince Charming vs Ramsey Noah

 8

Knight in shining armor. Handsome prince. Suitor extraordinaire. Always looking for a fair maiden.


Are we wrong? Aren’t these comparisons spot on? Share with your friends to get their opinions too!
