The 'Street Code' crooner stated that instead of bloggers, journalists and the media posting these clones on their pages and hosting them on their shows, they should rather promote the songs of the artistes.

"I drop songs every day. You lot overlook all of these things and then you go online promoting all of these people who impersonate other artistes," he bemoaned in the video.

Making suggestions for these clones, he advised his lookalike, Young Medikal, to go out there, work hard and look for money just as he does, if he truly wants to be like him.

"Why do you go live to ask for MoMo? Because Medikal does not go live to ask for MoMo. Make una grind. Make una hustle," he said in the video."
