Here are Kenyan celebs who were caught with fake designer outfits or attires
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko who is known to have an insatiable appetite for trendy fashion, was caught pants down with a fake designer outfit.
While hanging out with Starehe MP Charles Njaguar aka singer Jaguar with his two kids, Mike Sonko shared a photo that did not escape the keen eyes of fashion fans on his wall.
The fans spotted that he was not rocing Louis Vuitton but Louis Yutton, which is definitely not the original.

Known for rocking deluxe and expensive designer clothes, shoes and almost everything, Vera Sidika is such a rich socialite to adore.
