In an interview on YFM in Kumasi, he warned his lookalikes to desist from impersonating him.

Kuami Eugene stated that it is illegal for someone to take advantage of other people’s work and intellectual property to solicit funds.
“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 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.”
The 'Fire' hitmaker stated that there are perks to having young people aspire to be like him and that the presence of lookalikes may also likely extend the relevance of an artiste.
“It’s always fun till you’re caught on the wrong side of the law.”
