Internet personality StevoTheMadMan succeeded in cheating. West Ham Fans made him think he was a new signing for the club.
The 37-year-old real name Kevin Stephens was recently mistaken for grime artist and MC Skepta, so he decided to have some fun with his supporters.
To make his schtick even more believable, Stevo, in West Ham tracksuit, pulled over to several Hammers on the roadside near the club training ground.
He told them he was an impending rookie and “rookie captain,” and took pictures with four other fans who had no clue.
Before departing, Stevo said his signature would be announced later.
He filmed all the cool exchanges for his followers, and the video has garnered over 500,000 views on Facebook.
Stephens is a huge West Ham fan and has collaborated with the club on several occasions.
He is a former footballer who played for Leyton Orient, Newport County, Enfield Town and Boreham Wood.
After that, Stephens started working as a recovery driver, and through his comedies and online content, he went viral and achieved huge followers on platforms like Snapchat and Vine.
It was only in March that an excited fan saw the UFC event at the O2 Arena and thought he was Skepta.
Ironically, Skepta’s JME brothers’ hit ‘That’s not me’ exploded out of the speakers, and Stevo played along.
Looking forward to seeing what he will show.
