The Afrobeats sensation, Michael Adebayo, who goes by the stage name Ruger, has disclosed his thoughts on Kenyan fan who’s been leveraging his image and songs to generate income and amass followers.
In a viral video online, a man who would easily be mistaken for the singer, was seen wearing the same eye patch and pink hair, performing to an eager and excited crowd.
The fake Ruger was also singing the Nigerian singer’s songs all through his shows. He also seemed to have studied Ruger’s method of performance and had dancers on stage with an entire team at his beck and call.
During an interview with the British digital radio station BBC Radio 1Xtra, Ruger was grilled about his thoughts on the imposter’s performances of his songs.
In his response, Ruger acknowledged that he had been alerted to the situation through messages from concerned individuals, who urged him to put a halt to the imposter’s acts.
However, Ruger expressed that he doesn’t view the imposter’s performances negatively, instead, he considered it a means of promoting his music.
He emphasized that he genuinely wishes the imposter success in his endeavors.
