Parody accounts have been in existence since the emergence of social media. With some with the motive of promoting their favorite stars are others are also of the view of milking the hard earn reputation of the brands in questions.
The Sarkcess family, cannot be excluded from the effects of parody accounts on their brands. Ghanaians especially Sarknation who are happy for the Sarkcess family who recently arrived in Ghana after months of being locked out abroad.
Prior to the arrival of the Sarkcess family, fans were hopping that either Sarkodie or Tracy would inform them about their arrival.
Netizens were on the lookout only for an account on twitter which resembles that of Tracy Sarkcess “@TracySarlcess tweeted “Welcome to Ghana. @sarkodie and myself with Titi have arrived in Ghana. Thank you for travelling mercies.” This post of course drew the attention of Ghanaians on the possible arrival of the family.
Tracy Sarkcess upon seeing the tweet, quoted the parody account expressing her displeasure with the tweet made about her and the family pretending to be her.
She tweeted “Can you stop this nonsense and fake account please?! Impersonating someone is a crime! If it’s a parody account fine but let it be known and stop deceiving people. It’s my name your playing with. Thank you & good morning.”

Although this may not be the end of the road for parody accounts. I guess this minimizes the operations of Parody accounts to tarnished the images of brands or celebrities.
