Zambian musician General Kanene lied about being “Tupac Wa Mu Zambia” because the real Zambian 2 Pac has been found.
The man who is the spitting image of the late American Hip Hop artist Tupac Shakur has caused a stir on social media.
Like the legendary United States rapper, the Tupac double has a clean-shaven head, a distinct goatee with a little moustache, and a couple of makeshift tattoos that have left people rolling with laughter.
The tattoos look like they were imprinted on his torso with a whiteboard marker.
The Zambian Tupac even goes around with a bandana, Tupac Shakur’s signature headgear, and a nose ring.
The lookalike, Fred Thole, also known as Legaah or Zed Tupac II, currently resides in Lusaka, Zambia.
Thirty-seven-year-old, Legaah, was born on June 7, 1985, in Ndola, Zambia, and later relocated to Lusaka, according to Zambian media.
He is married to Zondile Chirwa, and they have a six-year-old son.
Zed Tupac II even decided to maximize his popularity and venture into music.
Legaah reemerged on Facebook, and the lookalike has since gone viral across Africa.
In one of his trending pictures, he has a homemade tattoo inscribed with words like “2Pac”, “Thug Life” and many other characters like music notes and little cartoons.
