Earlier, Medikal made a video expressing anger at the media buzz surrounding individuals who have described themselves as celebrity lookalikes in the country, describing them as impersonators and asking media houses not to promote them. However, this did not sit well with the two young men who have become social media sensations due to their striking resemblance to popular musicians.

Speaking out against Medikal's comments, the lookalikes of King Promise and Kuami Eugene questioned the rapper for criticising them and argued that they, too, deserved attention and recognition. They pointed out that Medikal himself had enjoyed media attention when he was coming up in the music industry and argued that they should be given the same opportunity.

They argued that they were simply fans of the artistes and enjoyed dressing like them, adding that there was nothing wrong with that.

The lookalikes went on to say that they were not trying to take anything away from the real musicians but were just trying to have fun and enjoy themselves. They called on people to be more understanding and accepting of their harmless hobby and to stop spreading hate and negativity online.

Medikal's Approach Was Not Right- Chris Tsormanah

Chris Tsormanah, a music expert and pundit, spoke to YEN.com.gh and reacted to Medikal's comments on the viral celebrity lookalikes. He felt the musician's approach was not right but harsh on the young men. He said:

The public is already on his side. As a big brand, as he is, he has to go through the right channels. He could have hit them up in their DMs since their social media handles are out there. He could have reached out to them and shared his grievances.

Chris Tsormanah Criticises Lookalikes

Chris also criticised the approach the lookalikes also used and said they could have done better.

I will equally speak against what the lookalikes also did. I realised some of the things they do is born out of ignorance. I have seen some of their interviews, and it looks like some of them do not understand the legal implication if they try to do shows or make money using the names of the artistes. He said.
