Man on Afghan Talent Show Becomes Star Because of Justin Trudeau Looks

A contestant on an Afghan talent show has become a star thanks to his uncanny resemblance to Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Singer Abdul Salam Maftoon has been competing in Afghan Star, which claims to be Afghanistan’s number one ‘music talent programme’.

After surviving a series of elimination rounds, the aspiring musician has been dubbed ‘Salam Trudeau’ and ‘Afghan Trudeau’ thanks to his resemblance to Canada’s 47-year-old premier.

Afghanistan’s Khaama Press said Maftoon, who has a full head of black hair and similar facial features to Trudeau, is a folk singer from the country’s Badakhshan province.
