Members of a community Facebook group in Sydney’s western suburbs went into a frenzy on Wednesday after one of its users spotted a man in a Granville park who looked remarkably similar to DJ Khaled.
A photo originally shared to Snapchat – which featured an unidentified bearded man wearing tracksuit pants and Nike sneakers – was reposted to the Auburn_2144 group.
The image was captioned, ‘Spotted in Granville, DJ Khaled’, in reference to the fact the man shared eerily similar proportions and facial features to the American record producer.
Seeing double! DJ Khaled’s fans went into a meltdown on Facebook after his ‘lookalike’ was spotted at a Sydney park – so do YOU see the resemblance?
Several Facebook users were quick to comment on the post, with one writing, ‘Could this be true?’
Meanwhile, many hundreds more simply tagged their friends in the group thereby helping make the photo go viral.
Although the man looks very similar to the hip hop artist, the real DJ Khaled is actually in Miami promoting Ciroc’s Black Raspberry flavoured vodka.
It is unclear if the multi-millionaire businessman has ever visited western Sydney.

Back in October, DJ Khaled made headlines after hiring out the 36,000-seat Miami Marlins baseball stadium for his son Asahd’s second birthday party.
The New Orleans-born musician filled the venue with fairground rides, including a personalised Ferris wheel.
He also announced via Instagram that the party would also double as the launch of the Khaled family’s new initiative, the We the Best Foundation, which aims at helping children worldwide.

While no specific figures were given, thousands of dollars were said to have been donated to the foundation at the event.
Given the fact the party was held at the home of the Miami Marlins baseball team, it was fitting that one of the organisation’s owners was present, Derek Jeter.
Jeter, who played for the New York Yankees for his entire 20-year Major League Baseball career, was part of a group that acquired the Miami Marlins in 2017.
