American gospel singer Don Moen and President Uhuru Kenyatta share a fashion designer.

Designer Carol Pulei, who designed the president's red and white African shirt, last week did the same design for Don Moen.

Moen was in the country last week for a worship concert held at Christ is The Answer Ministries (Citam) church in Karen.

He spotted a shirt similar to President Kenyatta's save for the color.

Designer Pulei took to her Facebook to share her joy to dress the celebrated gospel musician.

She wrote: "One of my most humbling and emotional moments styling and dressing one of the biggest gospel musicians in the world. #going global.💪🏽"


Pulei shot to fame during the Jubilee Party's National Delegates Convention in May when the president's shirt became top in the news.

She had made President Kenyatta's shirt based on random sizing and it was Mike Sonko who offered to present it to the President.

Not surprising, the president liked the unique design and that is how she ended up meeting him in person and designed many more of his shirts.

For Moen's look, Pulei chose the same embroidery, but this time in a blue color, staying away from Jubilee Party's red color that she uses on the President's shirts.

She was in attendance at the concert and watched Moen perform while wearing a shirt she designed and made.
