Loft Story, Star Academy, Secret Story, the Ch'tis, the Marseillais… He is a real encyclopedia of reality TV. He is also a fan of sports (particularly football and Paris Saint-Germain) and music. He listens to everything and his playlists surprise more than one! Fresh La Peufra has been buzzing since winning New School, Netflix's rap contest starring SCH, Shay and Niska as jurors. His piece Chop, thanks to which he won the 100,000 euros at stake, is a real hit. But recently, the rapper was surprised to learn that someone was impersonating him in Spain and was even doing paid showcases! He reacted on Twitter…
He caught it! Since his victory in Nouvelle école, the Netflix rap competition, Fresh La Peufra has been a hit with the song Chop. The clip already has more than 12 million views on YouTube! But, while he's only just erupted, the rapper got to see some amazing sides to stardom.
Indeed, Fresh discovered that he had a look-alike – who goes by the pseudonym Stockno, and that he pretended to be him in Spain. The impostor, on vacation on the other side of the Pyrenees at the time of the events, even had fun doing a showcase in a nightclub in his name, which obviously went cream! Yes, no one would have realized that it wasn't Fresh that was performing.
A lookalike not so similar, but which ensures the show!
And the worst part of all that is that the resemblance is really not phew! The impostor even had fun on Twitter. “Basically it was a holiday blast, I'm done with the robbery of the century 😭” he wrote, as the buzz about him was mounting.
For his part, Fresh, who was made aware of this story, also reacted and it seems that he took it all with a lot of humor. “Hello, so the guy who pretends to be me in the club, how much does he charge for the show? That I adapt” he tweeted.
On the other hand, not sure that the usurper's answer will make him laugh for very long. So that identity theft is obviously a crime, the famous Stockno revealed that he had “took more than 100k from NEW SCHOOL“. wouldn't be surprised to see a few lawyers in on the case.
The funniest thing is that the young man who posed as Fresh is himself a rapper! and released a project called Mariah, available on all streaming platforms. So will Fresh La Peufra offer a feat to her doppelganger or tell her “go outside“? Case to follow!
