A Nigerian lady has hilariously explained how she met a Brazillian footballer, Marcello, at a mall where she saw a movie without knowing his identity.
The young lady, Wuraola shared on Twitter that she saw a celebrity and took pictures with him without the knowledge that he was a football legend.
She explained that after seeing a movie, people crowded a celebrity, so she joined the bandwagon and then took pictures with him. She posted the pictures on Twitter and asked social media users to help identify the superstar.

Football fans could not hide their excitement at her opportunity of meeting one of the football legends and immediately informed her that he is Marcello.
The naive lady apologised and explained that she isn’t a football fan which explains why she couldn’t recognize him. She added that she introduced herself to the footballer and even asked him what his name is.
I almost deleted the pictures
“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,” she said.
“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”
She added that “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.”
