Uti and Gbenro who are oftened confused for each other because of their striking resemblance and have carved a reputation as one of the few celebrity Best Friends Forever (BFF).
When asked about his absence from the ceremony by Reporters on Wednesday at the Industry Night gig celebrity JJC, Uti’s reaction was dramatic. Infuriated by the question, he sarcastically queried to his questioner, “‘what happened in Benin?”
The break down of communication between Gbenro and Uti was not hidden to some in the industry but the latteer’s absence at the wedding ceremony further accentuated the difference between the two friends.
