Elephant Man Shares His Views on People Who Imitate His Voice

In an interview with Yardhype, Elephant Man was asked the question, “What’s your reaction to people who imitate your voice?” His response was interesting as he accepts people who use it in a positive and uplifting way, however, he strongly resents people who use it in a negative “bring dung” manner.

A part of his response was, “Well i don’t have problem with it enuh, but if you ago use my voice just have likkle respect!.. don’t try feel like seh yuh ago try bring dung my thing with my voice… How does it look fi somebody a try bring dung your thing with your voice? That nuh mek nuh sense… Dont try clown-out my thing with my voice.”
