A Nigerian lady has shared the funny story of how she met and took pictures with Brazilian football legend, Marcelo, without knowing his identity.
The lady with Twitter handle @OreluwainBrazil, revealed that she went to a mall in Brazil to see a movie when she noticed people crowding around a certain “celebrity.” She also joined the bandwagon and went to meet the celebrity and took pictures with him.
She took to Twitter to share the photo and inquired about his true identity, only to be informed that he is renowned professional footballer, Marcelo.
Oreoluwa felt bad about not recognizing the footballer, who is often regarded as one of the greatest left-backs of all time, and tendered an apology to him and his fans.
Read her hilarious narration below,
“I met a celebrity and I had no clue in the world who he is. I just went to take pictures because people were crowding him. I have never watched football in my life. How would I have known?
“HOW DID I MEET MARCELO WITHOUT KNOWING HE WAS MARCELO?? I went to the mall to see a movie, I went with my sister @hannexe but we separated because we saw different movies. Before my movie time I went to get yogurt and walked around the mall.
“I said “Wuraola” he replied with “Uh ohlaolala”. We laughed, I said nice to “meet you, bye”, collected my phone from his bodyguard only to realise that we didn’t take proper posing pictures. The guard took pictures of us talking instead
“For context….. I honestly had no IDEA I was asking a legend @MarceloM12 “what is your name” . Can someone please rewind yesterday for me.
“I just nonchalantly sat down with my ignorant butt filming them asking myself “who is he”? I don’t know what made me stand up to meet him that uncle lets take a selfie too.
“I almost deleted the pictures because we didn’t pose , just talking. I didn’t know some of you wouldn’t even mind I posted it here to ask “who is he” Let me apologise to @MarceloM12 and all his fans, I’m sorry next time I meet him I promise to represent you all WELL.”
