Deebo from “Friday” is providing his true blessing to “Deebo” from the 49ers — and also TMZ Sports has the video clip!!
FYI, “Deebo” Samuel — genuine name Tyshun — obtained the label by his daddy, Galen, when he was youngster as a homage to the motion picture badass played by Tiny Lister.
The label stuck as he ended up being a celebrity WR at South Carolina — and also he ACTUALLY exploded when he was chosen by the 49ers in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
So, when we saw Lister out in L.A. a few days ago, we asked him if he really felt the WR deserved the “Deebo” name.
“He gets the blessing man,” Lister informed us … “He’s one of the starting wide receivers for the San Francisco 49ers. I’m a big fan of what they doing up there man!”
And, obtain this, Lister claims he’s remained in talks with Ice Cube concerning a brand-new “Friday” motion picture — capturing can begin as very early as December — and also Lister desires Samuel to obtain a function!
“Hey, Ice Cube is gonna have to put Lil’ Deebo in the movie with Big Deebo, okay?! And, let’s rock it!”
Lister also has a message for Samuel — look into the clip!!!
