Kenyans have poked fun at an image comparing controversial gospel singer Ringtone Apoko with Jay-Z

Taking to his social media pages, the singer shared a picture of himself rocking a similar outfit recently worn by Jay-Z.

The Walionicheka hit-maker bragged shopping at the same place as the rapper.

“Birds from same feathers shop same shop ask Jayz (my friends the son of God is on top not below, ahead not behind),” read his caption.

Kenyans immediately started trolling him:

“Unashikana na marafiki ambao hawajaokoka kwanini ama unataka kuwa mutu mudunia?” Dj Shiti asked.

Comedian Mulamwah wasn’t left behind either as he questioned the material of the coat Ringtone had on.

“Rangi hatukatai lakini material ndio tofauti.

Another follower @zyaadthuo said, “Yako inakaa ya githurai na sio chuki”.

“Looks like Jayz before and after fame,” @papa_africa_254 commented.

@turis_beauty asked “Where does God come in?”

Ringtone is not new to fuelling controversy about himself as last year, he revealed that he was looking for a wife in the most unique way.

“Now that Kenyan ladies are ignoring me we are going to go out to the road.  There’s something I have been doing secretly. I’m surprised no one has noticed yet,” he said

In the segment, Ringtone drove to Runda and parked his car on the side, stood in the middle of the road and raised a placard with his future wife’s qualities.

“If in those 30 minutes a lady sees me and inboxes me we talk, I’m ready,” Ringtone explained.

"We are happy that you're now one of us. We are however not pleased that you are rearing cows. Karen is not a farm but a residential community,” read part of the letter alleged to be from the association.

"I got those cows when I was wooing Zari, but when she refused to take up my offer, I decided to keep them.” he narrated. “Now they have multiplied and are also a source of milk which I am able to sell.”

Then there was the publicized hunt for entrepreneur Zari
