Smooth sir, very smooth.

Aprilia Nurohmah   03 October 2016 12:14 - Bandung Mayor Ridwan Kamil or Kang Emil is a star for the people in West Java's Capital, but we also know his finesse on social media plays a big role in making him the loved mayor that he is. 

Last week, the mayor with more than four million Instagram followers posted a photo on his personal account with a caption "soulmates tend to look alike. *but, knock on wood, hopefully not like this."

Reposted from Instagram user @farishuma, the photo shows the mayor himself standing by a lady in a kebaya with his exact facial features, an image that appears to have been hilariously photoshopped from an original picture of him and his wife, Atalia Praratya Kamil, attending the city's anniversary event.

Ridwan even went on to cross-post the photo to Facebook, drawing comments from horrified but entertained followers. 

"Hahaha.. what a horror," said @ruft09.

"Knock on wood Kang Emil... You are handsome [as you are], no need to try and be pretty... not good :p," commented @curie_felfaz.

"Perhaps, he is one of the funniest, most sociable, greatest leaders. He remains close to his people, even when he is busy, he can still make us laugh. No distance between him and us...! Kudos for Kang emil, we love u akang!!" wrote Peor Wana Az.
