Ginuwine says he’s glad his unauthorized impersonator has been stopped. Minnesota resident Ronrico Madison was indicted January 2 in New York for posing as the successful R&B singer, as well as Jodeci member DeVante Swing.

Ginuwine spoke about Madison backstage at the American Music Awards. “Well, I’m just glad it’s over, you know what I mean? He caused a lot of problems for about a year and a half, so I’m just glad that it’s over. And hopefully, he’ll get what’s coming to him. He contacted a lot of people that I knew, and he was acting like me, so I know that it left a bad taste in people’s mouth, but it wasn’t me. But hopefully, they’ll get over it,” he said.

Ginuwine was nominated for the AMA’s favorite soul/R&B male artist, which was won by Luther Vandross. Ginuwine’s “Differences” is Number Nine on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks charts, where it peaked at Number One. He is also featured on Missy Elliott’s “Take Away,” which is Number 13.
