Miami, FL – The celebrity lookalike business can be a lucrative one — just ask Snoop Dogg’s doppelgänger Eric Finch who gets paid to portray the D-O-Double-G at a variety of events.
Drake also has a celebrity lookalike who almost resembles Drake more than Drake does these days, especially with the distinguishable Certified Lover Boy heart shaved into his head (which Drake has ditched in recent months).
The bootleg version of the 6 God was spotted at a crowded Miami nightclub over the weekend wearing a OVO Sound tracksuit and dancing along to the music, fooling plenty of people along the way.
The Instagram caption read, “@champagnepapi In Miami acting bad tonight.”
The 22-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Izzy, did an interview with No Jumper last November and claimed he got Drake’s stamp of approval through a professional Las Vegas gambler who knows Drake.
“He got in contact with Drake and Drake was just like, ‘It doesn’t bother me, it doesn’t affect me. Let the guy get his bag. It’s not affecting me. If you think it’s gonna go wrong if you’re posting him on your [Instagram Stories] and everything, just keep the peace,’” he said. “He didn’t really give a fuck, you know? That was the whole thing. I’m just being humble, I’m doing my thing. I got kids – I’m doing this shit for my family.”
Izzy said he’s started raking in money for the gig, even getting flights and places to stay covered.
“I’m touring, I’ve got some music events I gotta show up to,” he said. “People DM me like, ‘Hey, you wanna come to my event because I can’t pay Drake – he’s too expensive. I’ll pay you $5,000.’ $5,000 just to show up. They pay my Airbnb, they pay the flight, they hook it all up.”
In October, “Fake Drake” was filmed performing the real Drake’s actual songs at another Miami club, including “Trophies” and the Certified Lover Boy No. 1 hit “Way 2 Sexy.” Check out the video below.
