A man who tried to copy an outfit that popular radio presenter Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang’o was wearing five months ago but ended up getting a raw deal has every reason to smile.

This is after Jalang’o who recently announced that he will be running for the Lang’ata Parliamentary seat on an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket promised to gift the man for showing that he really tried to get a similar outfit as his.

It all started when the Kiss 100 presenter shared an image standing side to side with the man who is identified as MC Vuvuzela Kiplagat and hails from Baringo County, dressed in an outfit that resembles Jalang’os.

However, Kiplagat’s outfit is visibly faded and one can easily see that he must have gotten a raw deal when he visited a tailor shop hoping to get something similar to Jalang’os.

It was clear that Kiplagat’s outfit was way far to what Jalang’o had dressed in on June 1, 2021, during the 58th Madaraka Day held at the Jomo Kenyatta Stadium in Kisumu County and where the Kiss 100 presenter was the MC of the day.

The photo sparked a lot of reactions from Kenyans, who asked Jalang’o to link the man up with his tailor.

“Who has his phone number?” posed Jalang’o, adding that he wanted to gift him with a similar suit.

On seeing this, Liru Designs who are behind the tailoring of Jalang’os outfit also said that they will add him one more suit of a colour of his choice for free.

The suit is a black and red-shirt which also had a matching black trouser. According to Liru tailors, it costs Ksh 8,000 to make a similar suit.

On the day that he shared the image on his official Instagram account, Jalang’o captioned it as he praised the tailoring and design shop for a job well done.
