"Someone may not have heard my songs in a long time, and perhaps they chanced on a lookalike on social media and they started to stream my songs. It has some positive vibes," he told MzGee on the show.

He stated that it is one of the positive sides of having someone impersonate you.

However, he urged him and other clones not to be showing up at shows that the celebrity they are impersonating has been billed to perform.

"My lookalike has not performed at any show yet. I love that about him, but he should enjoy the fame but keep it calm."

Lookalikes can be counted as content creators - Ameyaw Debrah

Celebrated Ghanaian blogger Ameyaw Debrah was of the view that celebrity clones could be counted as content creators.

Explaining further, he noted that it would only be possible if they create their unique content around their persona as a lookalike and people buy into the idea.

"It all depends on how they present themselves and their content. Foster Fomanus often mimics Samini perfectly on stage, and that is great content. Impersonation and mimicry is an art on its own,” he said in an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh.

He added that being a look-alike does not automatically mean that the person is impersonating.

However, he added that when they start acting or performing like the celebrities they happen to clone, then it could be said that they are impersonating them.
