Have you ever met your doppelganger? You’ve probably heard that out of the over seven billion people on earth, chances are there is someone who looks like you. In Kenya, we’ve seen a couple of people who resemble celebrities but have no relations. A good example was yesterday when a photo of a man resembling President Uhuru Kenyatta went viral. The photo was shared by one Twitter user identified as ‘The Prophet’. Let’s take a look at Kenyan celebrities and their look-alike;
Margaret Kenyatta and Grace Elizabeth Mkabili
The First lady Margaret Kenyatta shares a striking resemblance with Grace Mkabili who hails from Voi. The two not only look alike but also have a similar skin tone, same height and both of them wear glasses. While speaking to The Standard, the 51-year-old activist revealed that people stop to ask her if she is related to the First Family.
Ann Waiguru and Ann Mvurya
When Ann Mvurya first came into the limelight after winning the UoN student’s election, several Kenyans mistook her for the Kiringaya Governor’s daughter. The two share the same name and even skin complexion. At one point, Governor Waiguru acknowledged their resemblance when Ann Mvurya visited her office.
“It is said that everybody has at least one person whom they strongly resemble: Had an intriguing meeting with newly elected UNSA Chair Ann Mvurya,” said the governor.
Bien (Sauti Sol) and JB Smoove of USA
First, both of them are in the entertainment industry and even met at 2015 during BET awards. Bien Baraza is a singer in the popular Kenyan group Sauti Sol while JB Smoove is a comedian in the United States. The two not only look alike but also share the same complexion and wear glasses.
Gaylyne Ayugi and Lupita Nyongo
These two have so many things in common, aside from looking alike. Both of them are models, have the same body type, keep their hair short and neat, share the same skin tone, and even smile. Gaylyne was crowned Miss Universe Kenya 2014 while Lupita is an award-winning Hollywood actress.
