Watch out, Donald! You might just have competition for that red mic.

An artist hoping to break into the music industry sparked shock and confusion this week when he named himself after award-winning musician Donald.

The young hopeful took to social media to promote his new song, which shares similarities to a hit by his more famous namesake.

Twitter users, including celebs like Black Coffee and Euphonik, were shocked by the discovery and asked him if he was "also Donald".

While others responded by suggesting that the upcoming muso change his name.

"Donald" hit back by saying that he would not change his name to please people and that South Africa having two artists named Donald was "not a miracle".

Attempts to contact the veteran Donald for comment were unsuccessful but perhaps someone can organise a collab with the two.
