Nigerian youth are set for a weekend of fun as the nobel initiative, 'Celebdouble', organised by MTN ambassadors, climaxes with a club invasion in Lagos, Benin and Enugu, on Friday, 4th of April, 2014. The 'Celebdouble,' which began a couple of weeks ago, is a search for the telecommunications giant's brand ambassadors and musical superstars look-alikes; and, interestingly, thousands of youth from different parts of the country have been sending their pictures in hope that they match their favourite artistes.

The closest spitting images will, however, be hosted and treated to a great night of fun and music with a rare opportunity to parley with the artistes at the party; asides that, a special VIP arrangement is in place for the two most striking look-alikes of each of the artistes. The artistes are Davido, Wizkid, Iyanya, Don Jazzy, Kcee, Harrysong, Tiwa Savage, iMike and Praiz.

Meanwhile, these artistes have been talking about the initiative. In a recent interview, Praiz, the winner of Headies Best R & B artiste award for 2013, said “the idea behind 'Celebdouble' is to bring Nigerian music fans closer to their favourite artiste, parley and also share a rare moment of fame with the superstars”.

“It sure will be a good time for me and the fans out there”, he enthused.

Also, 'Kukere Master', Iyanya Mbuk, sounded excited at the prospect of meeting someone who most likely looks and probably behaves like him. He mentioned that he had been discussing this possibility with the other artistes and looked forward as well to completing a most memorable night of high level entertainment with his fans.

With the Nigerian music industry taking giant strides in registering its presence on the globe, indigenous artistes have been coming up with different initiatives, of which the 'Celebdouble' is one, to ensure there is a stronger affinity between the industry and its fan-base.
