I don't understand enough of Wikimapia to actually determine which
account has uploaded what when, but a cursory glance at the link (OSM
can be activated as a base map in tha layer switcher) seems to indicate
that buildings look similar to OSM but not the same (my guess - both
imported from same source?) while many parks, commercial areas, and
graveyards seem to have 100% identical geometries to OSM.
