Ghanaian sensational singer and songwriter, Kuami Eugene, has recently disclosed that some young men from Fadama, a suburb in Accra, sought his permission to take down his doppelgänger.
The matter of lookalikes has garnered attention on social media, following the establishment of an association by a group of individuals claiming to resemble certain celebrities.
During an interview with Amansan Krakye, Kuami Eugene expressed concern for his lookalike, stating that “I’m scared for my lookalikes cos where I come from they don’t like that and the reason why they didn’t act in the first place was because I told them to leave him to have fun.”
He went on to mention that the young men had initially sought his permission to carry out the act but he advised them to refrain from it, saying “I told them if he’s not playing shows and he’s not doing so much but just showing love to Kuami Eugene then let him express himself but they told me super this guy make we mafia am.”
The artiste, who hails from Fadama, urged his boys to exercise restraint and cautioned them on the potential consequences of their actions, noting that “you guys should calm down so people don’t really like what’s going on and if you are enjoying it you don’t really see the negative aspect of it until the negative side comes in.”
