That's because there's not a single "brazilian" look. however if you go to bahia i'm sure you'll find many people resembling them.

Here's clip by bahian band Ara Ketu about beninese kingdom of Dahomey

Either way, the brazilian part of them is not so much phenotypical or even genetical but rather cultural.
Carneval, catholicism, brazilian food (feijoada) and brazilian familynames are some of these brazilian cultural elements which still can be found in Nigeria/Togo/Benin/Ghana.
