Videos of Medikal, Kuami Eugene, King Promise, Black Sherif, Fameye and other artiste lookalikes have flooded social media.
These men who resemble these artists have revealed they intend to mimic the artists as their full-time jobs.
These men parade themselves as musicians because they look like some of Ghana’s A-list artists.
Some of these celebrity lookalikes are making money off celebrities’ hard-earned fame.
Medikal, Shatta Wale, Fameye, Quamina MP, Stonebwoy and other artists have spoken against this lookalike craze and advised the young men involved to put a stop to it.
Veteran Actor, Fred Amugi during a discussion on UTV’s United Showbiz show shared his 2 cents on the lookalike craze.
Fred Amugi advised Musicians or entertainers to try and put an end to it before it goes out of hand.
According to Fred Amugi, some people might not have any ill intentions with the claims of being a lookalike of a particular artist but others might have ill intentions.
He stressed that if a particular lookalike has ill motives against a particular musician and he decides to go to a group that is about to put an event together for money to come and perform and he/she fails to show up, it is the original musician who will face the consequences of such actions.
The ‘Borga’ movie actor used himself as an example and revealed that growing up, he was seen by many people as the late, Paul Victor Obeng KSG well-known as P. V. Obeng.
Fred Amugi added that even though he worked closely with him at the Castle back then, there was not a single instance he accepted the fact that he was PV when people even approached him with things meant for the latter.
