Well, to be fair, the man in the photo is Suleiman Abdulfatai, a graphic and clothing designer from Nigeria. However, it was not his designs which made the world take notice of him; it was his similarity with Boseman that made him famous on Twitterverse overnight.

Tweeple went berserk and was convinced that looks like the King of Wakanda and one even urged him to pose with Black Panther’s signature pose. While some fans started sharing juxtaposed images of the two men and how eerily similar they look, others started sharing memes and jokes.

While one wrote, “I sincerely thought this was a photoshopped picture of @chadwickboseman”, other Marvel movies buff thought it was a brilliant plan for Black Panther II or specially after what happened in Avengers: Infinity Wars.

And it was not just on Twitter, Black Panther fans have started commenting on his Instagram profile as well and it seems he is enjoying all the crazy attention at the moment.
