Nigerians have risen to the defence of content creator, Tiago Ishola popularly known as Unique Tiago, over his recent skit mimicking the late legendary comic actor, Babatunde Omidina aka Baba Suwe.

Unique Tiago, born in Portugal to a Portuguese mother, is reportedly the son of a prominent Yoruba man from Oyo State.

Popular on TikTok and Instagram, the light-skinned content creator first caught the attention of many Nigerians for his fluency in the Yoruba language.

In his skit that has now gone viral, Unique Tiago recreated a movie scene between Baba Suwe and another popular actor, Bolaji Amusan popularly known as Mr Latin.

To make his recreation more believable, the content creator painted his face black, as Baba Suwe did in numerous movie appearances.

However, that singular action pitched him against some netizens, who accused him of cultural appropriation.

However, many Nigerians on X, formerly known as Twitter, took to the social media platform to defend the Nigerian-Portuguese content creator.
