Kuami Eugene is not worried about people who look like him and try to sing his songs at events.
However, he says he would take action against such people if he finds out that they are using his brand to enrich themselves.
In an interview with NY DJ on Y102.5FM in Kumasi, Kuami said: “It’s just beautiful to have almost every young boy growing up wanting to be like you. People want to sound like me, dress like me etc. Not everyone gets that, so it’s a blessing to me.”
He said there are advantages to this trend because it also helps shore up the relevance of the main artistes.
“There’s only a problem when people start going in for money to impersonate me. When someone goes out there to make money off your hard work or sweat, that’s when it’s illegal. It’s always fun till you’re caught on the wrong side of the law,” he explained.
A few months ago, Kuami performed with one of his lookalikes at a show in Kumasi.
