Cape Town – You may have seen and assumed Rihanna posted a young version of herself on Instagram yesterday, but the photograph is no throwback. 

"Almost drop my phone. How?" Riri posted on Instagram, with an image of Ala’a, a kids model, according to her bio

Instagram users were convinced Rihanna found her doppelganger, a long-lost daughter or she must be ageing in reverse. 

"What in the Benjamin buttons..." commented one user, another said, "I thought this was Arihanna for a sec!"

"The government is cloning people," joked some, while Global Fenty make-up artist, Priscilla Ono added, "I thought this was the start of the face app young challenge."
