Ghanaian singer Kuami Eugene’s lookalike, Steve Quamz has expressed his affection for his celebrity replica though refuted any claims of him being obsessed with the award-winning musician.
Speaking in an interview on Delay Show aired on July 16, Steve Quamz disclosed that he had never seen Kuami Eugene in person before but hopes to perform on stage with him someday.
“If I meet him in person, I’ll give him a tight hug. I haven’t tried meeting him but I believe because I’m also an artist, one day we will meet on stage,” he stated.
When asked why his hair was the same as his celebrity lookalike, he explained that the Afrobeat singer challenged him in a viral video and he took it up.
“Kuami Eugene asked me to do his hairstyle. He did a video asking his lookalikes to replicate his new hairstyle. I was in a car returning from a program in Cape Coast and Robert (King Promise’s lookalike) showed it to me. So immediately I reached my destination, I called my hairstylists and told them to change my hairdo as Kuami Eugene has thrown a challenge to his lookalikes. So the next morning, I took a video which was a reply to his challenge,” he clarified.
Expressing how he felt about his celebrity lookalike, Steve Quamz indicated that he really loved the musician and was one of his biggest fans.
“I love Kwami Eugene. I do love him a lot. I am not obsessed with him. I love his music and his personality. I am a die-hard fan,” he shared.
He further added that he believed he was the original replica of Kuami Eugene, unlike the other lookalikes all over social media. He also mentioned that though he doesn’t learn songs from the musician in question, he is able to sing them within the shortest possible time.
“He has other lookalikes but I am the original and he can attest to that. I don’t study Kuami Eugene but the moment he releases a song and I hear it, automatically, I know how to sing it,” he pointed out.
