The police arrested the lookalike of Ghanaian afrobeat singer King Promise in a trending video, which is believed to be a publicity stunt.
Robest and his lookalike colleagues seemed to be recording the video before the police stormed their premises to arrest him.
In the trending video, Robest Jnr, the lookalike who has been branded as the leader of the "Four Kings," comprising the lookalikes of Kuami Eugene, Mr Drew, and Medikal, looked surprised when the police entered his room to arrest him.
Robest Jnr was seated behind a ring light when the police stormed his premises. In the video, the doppelganger, who had earlier lambasted celebrities who criticised him and his crew, pleaded with the police to allow him to explain the reason for the arrest but was to no avail.

We were only joking, I am a public figure, why are you arresting me?
