Impersonation has been a problem in the arts sector for many years. It frequently occurs when a fan is extremely fascinated with a star.
However, there is now a crop of young males who imitate celebrities in order to steal money from event organisers.
Jamal Wasswa is the most recent victim of the escalating sin.
Jamal mentioned on the NBS KURT show on Saturday afternoon how someone in the Nansana area is destroying his brand through imitation.
The soft-spoken artist stated that the individual in issue accepts money from promoters and mimes his songs, but he does it so badly that it is destroying his image.
Jamal intimated that he had already filed for an arrest warrant and that the man ought to be detained for impersonating.
In Nansana, there is a man who impersonates me. He impersonates my music. What I don’t like about him is that he calls himself Jamal and steals money from people. He was recently in Masaka and charged Shs5 million to perform.
He’s short and has bleached his hair to look like me. He frequently appears in Kwempe and Nansana. There is an arrest warrant out for him, and I will arrest him for impersonating
DJ Nimrod acknowledged seeing the aforementioned imposter and also stated that there are many young people mimicking many other artists.
“I know a few of other youngsters that impersonate Jose Chameleone, Bobi Wine, and David Lutalo.” “I assumed they were simply performing humor, but stealing money from people is wrong,” DJ Nimrod remarked. (Jamal Wasswa obtains a warrant for the arrest of a Nansana imposter – celebrity jazz ug)
