Guy Convinced West Ham Fans He Was A New Signing And Even Took Pictures

Internet personality StevoTheMadMan managed to dupe West Ham fans into thinking 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 and decided to have some fun with supporters.

Wearing a West Ham tracksuit to make his schtick extra believable, Stevo pulled up in his car to some Hammers on the side of the road near the club's training ground.

He told them that he was an imminent new signing and "new skipper" before taking photos with four different fans who did not have the slightest clue.

Before driving off, Stevo said his signing was being announced later on.

He filmed the whole brilliant exchange for his followers, the video accruing more than 500,000 views on Facebook.

Stephens is a staunch West Ham fan and has worked with the club on a number of occasions.

He is a former footballer himself, having played for the likes of Leyton Orient, Newport County, Enfield Town and Boreham Wood.

Stephens then began working as a recovery driver and gained viral fame through his skits and online content, achieving a huge following on platforms like Snapchat and Vine.

It was only in March when an excited fan thought he was Skepta while watching the UFC event at the O2 Arena.

Ironically, Skepta's hit with brother JME, 'That's not me' was blasting out of the speakers and Stevo played along with it.

We look forward to seeing who he's going to imitate next.
