Popular Ghanaian and Multiple award-winning singer and songwriter King Promise also known as Gregory Bortey Newman, has stated that he does not hate the young men posing as his lookalikes.
The 2023 VGMA Album of the Year winner said he admires that he has inspired many who want to be like him, including his self-proclaimed doppelgangers.
In an interview on UTV’s United Showbiz hosted by MzGee on Saturday, May 20, King Promise said he’s indifferent about the trending craze about lookalikes.
I’m a role model for many people, and if they like me or want to be like me or follow my path, it’s a blessing that I get to influence my generation. Even if it’s not my generation, if people like me for what I do, it means I’m doing something right. And whichever way they choose to show me, love, as long s they are not stepping on any toes or messing with my brand, that is cool,” he said.
The CCTV hitmaker admitted that handling the issue of persons posing as celebrity lookalikes is dicey.
‘Because if you go and show them love and they do something wrong, it’ll come against you. If you fight them or become upset because of them, it’ll be like, why are you fighting with these young ones who’re showing you love? I am indifferent and don’t hate them,”
