However, there are many imposters who get on stage as fake Chamara. There are fraudsters who take on shows promising to put Chamara on stage but instead put on stage a fake Chamara and have him sing original songs by the real Chamara.
The real Chamara has posted a comment on his FB page regarding this matter.
“I am not saying these things in anger or jealousy. I like others achieving higher levels than me and I will not obstruct them in any way, but due to certain incidents that happened recently, I felt I should say something.
It is true that I sang Weraliyedda’s songs at the beginning, but I did not sing only his songs. I sang his songs together with the songs of many others.
I would like to tell others who sing my songs that I don’t mind them singing even all my songs while being the lead singer in any permanent band.
I earnestly request the musical programme organizers to please have my songs sung by other artistes together with songs of other singers. Further, I request them to refrain from using my photos to promote the show promising to have me on the stage.”
