Singapore was delighted yesterday to learn that its very own Kanye West is cruising the streets – or at least someone with an uncanny resemblance.
It was a man on a bicycle with a similar look and style including beard, mustache, features, and chain that grabbed the attention of nearly half a million viewers yesterday after it surfaced on TikTok.
“[P]eople don’t believe that [I] met [K]anye 😔 here’s the proof,” TikTok user _R1yan wrote.

In the short clip, the Kanye-alike is all smiles and jokes with the TikTokker when asked to sing a track from the singer’s 10th album Donda.
“Sing a bit, sing. No, it’s OK, faster [sing] ‘Donda.’ Sing a bit, sing a bit,” _R1yan said.
Viewers reacted in shock at the resemblance and offered the man his own monikers including Kanye East and Kanye Southeast Asia.
Some played along and asked if ex-wife Kim Kardashian was there too.
