Nigerian Afrobeats singer, Asake has finally met a young man who paraded himself as him during a show early this month.
When Asake was in Manchester, UK for his concert in December, the fake Asake appeared at Wizkid’s show in Ghana and pretended to be the real one.
The ‘Organize’ crooner had been listed among the performing acts at the music event in Ghana but he was abroad at the time, so rather than say he could not show, the organisers decided to use a lookalike to perform in his place.
The duo finally linked up in Ghana on Thursday during Afrochella and it happened that while Asake was performing his song, Joha, he brought the fake version on stage.
A video making the rounds online shows when the YBNL signee was singing while his doppelganger danced to he entertainment of fans.
He eventually sent the fake Asake off the stage and continued with his performance.
