“When everybody was playing Brother Blueface for all of his amateur actions I kept saying ‘he’s just a kid that needs some guidance,'” Twitter user @AyeYoTina wrote. “Now look at him, dancing with President Obama.”

Another user was shook that Blueface got to meet Obama. The purported interaction even gave them hope.

“I know I can now,” they wrote.

Not everyone fell for it, though. According to BET, the impersonator’s voice is what tipped off some fans to realize that they were not looking at the real deal.
