Mr Drew blames the media for look-alike trends

Ghanaian musician, Andrew Nii Commey Otoo known by the stage name, Mr Drew is blaming the media for the soaring popularity of look-alike figures.

Speaking on DGN TV recently, Mr Drew noted that it was quite interesting to see artistes struggling for media attention to promote their works. Yet, these mirror images enjoy such rare opportunities on a silver platter.

Mr Drew accused the media of fueling their “illegitimate works” by interviewing them on their various radio and TV stations.

“If we stop giving these lookalikes attention all these will stop. For now, there is nothing I can do since we are still giving them attention and making them feel what they are doing is right. If we stop giving them attention they will put a stop to impersonating us,” Mr Drew said.

Earlier in April, three young men caused a stir on social media with their striking resemblance to popular Ghanaian music stars Kidi, Kuami Eugene and King Promise. The trio, who identify themselves as the lookalikes of the famous musicians, went viral after a video of them surfaced online.

The resemblance of the three young men to the celebrities was nothing short of remarkable. From their hairstyles to their fashion sense, the lookalikes seemed to have nailed every aspect of their idols' appearances.

The video went viral drawing huge attention from both traditional and social media users. Interestingly, their presence has caused differing reactions from the artistes. On the part of Medikal who warned them in a video he posted online, the look-alikes were just impersonators feeding off the sweat of hardworking.

King Promise, however, thinks that they are not impersonators but just their way of showing them love.
