A-list star Kuame Eugene has issued a strong warning to his lookalikes never to make money off his sweat.
He said in as much as it’s intriguing to have people look like him and do everything to aspire to be like them, it’s equally worrisome that most of them have started representing him at public events.
The Rockstar made this known in a recent radio interview conducted on YFM. According to him, it is criminal for someone to take advantage of other people’s work and intellectual property.
“It’s just beautiful to have almost every young boy growing up wanting to be like you. People want to sound like me and dress like me but the only problem is when people start going in for money and impersonate me. When someone goes out there to make money off your hard work or sweat, that’s when it’s illegal,” he stated.
His admonition is closely on the heels of a viral video of two guys who look so much like him and his label mate KiDi performing at a private event.
The striking resemblance the impersonators share with the two mainstream stars made it difficult for some people at the party to actually believe they are not the real artistes.
