Australians take note: Don't get your rappers mixed up.
Former Fugees singer and Grammy award winning musician Wyclef Jean gave one Australian journalist a lesson today after her newspaper mistook him for the frontman of rival band - The Black Eyed Peas.
A reporter wrongly said yesterday that Jean, who is in town to host the MTV Australia Awards, was part of hip hop outfit the Black Eyed Peas.
At a press call ahead of the awards this weekend, Jean was keen to set the record straight.
Jean called out to the crowd of reporters and stepped down off the stage and sat next to a reporter from the publication.
"Did you say I was (Black Eyed Peas singer) will.i.am (will.i.am)?
"Listen baby I'm going to tell you something, look at my face right - do you think all black people look alike?
"We always do get mistaken for each other ... but no one has ever said Wyclef Jean, frontman for Black Eyed Peas.
"I can't manage two supergroups."
After having a laugh, Jean let her off the hook.
"I'm just having a tease, I'm just taking the piss out of you.
"Look at me girl, I look much better in person. Now you know the difference right?"
Other international celebrities who will attend the event including Mischa Barton, Eve and Juliette Lewis and her band The Licks, joined local pop duo the Veronicas, as well as Lyndsey Rodrigues at the press call.
Lewis will perform with her band Juliette and The Licks at the MTV Australia Awards this Saturday, along with Eve and 50 Cent, while Barton will present an award.
Rapper 50 Cent, or Fiddy to his fans, was absent from today's press call.
Other high profile guests will include The Vines, who will debut their new single, Leona Lewis, Kim Kardashian, Brian McFadden, Rogue Traders abd Ian Thorpe.
The MTV Australia Video Music Awards are on this Saturday in Sydney.
