Gone Fishing: Woman Impersonates Bow Wow on MTV's Catfish, He Responds (VIDEO)
(AllHipHop News) While Pusha T is promoting My Name Is My Name, a woman was not following such a mantra on last night's Catfish on MTV. On last night's episode of the reality show, a woman, deceptively claiming to be Bow Wow, was revealed to have engaged in a duplicitous online relationship with another woman.
Keyonnah, the 19 year old young woman who was duped, began engaging in the relationship after she sent a message to a Bow Wow Facebook fanpage and had the gesture reciprocated. The online relationship lasted for four months and included the faux Bow Wow sending Keyonnah $10,000. The impersonator was eventually revealed to be a female rapper who goes by the name "Dee Pimpin'":
Bow Wow responded to the episode and saw it as a source of honor and free publicity:
I feel honored. It’s dope and it’s flattering when someone wants to be you. Not only do they want to be you, in their mind they are you. It’s crazy, but I like it. It’s free promo for myself, for BET, for “106 & Park.” Quite frankly, I would actually like to meet them both. So here’s a message out to the girl who got Catfished and to the person who was pretending to be me…I am opening the door here at my house and I’m inviting you to come to “106 & Park” to sit down so I can ask you two some questions.
