Alikiba’s love for football is only second to his love for music, the singer has confessed multiple times before that he would have been a football player if he hadn’t made it in music.
It seems Kiba is on the verge of realizing his dream of becoming a football player. The Arsenal and Young Africans Sports Club (Yanga) super fan will however sign to another club – Coastal Union F.C. as a player.
Speaking during an interview with E FM’s Esport, Coastal Union F.C. chairman Steven Mguto confirmed the club was in talks with Alikiba to sign him.
The chairman however couldn’t divulge more details until the deal is done. He explained the club understand Kiba is a talented footballer even though he has no experience playing in a professional league.
Kiukweli siku zimebaki kidogo lakini na sisi kama zoezi letu limefikia ukingoni nafikiri mpaka kesho tutakuwa kwenye nafasi nzuri ya kueleza nani na nani tumemsajili.
Kwa sababu kwa sasa ndiyo tunamalizia watu wengine maswala ya mikataba sasa sirahisi kuweza kumtaja mkataba bado haja saini mwisho wasiku anaweza akageuza nia na ikawa kitu kingine.
Kwa kiasi kidogo kuna ukweli wa kutaka kumsaini Alikiba lakini pia mambo haya jakaa sana sawa lakini wenyewe mnamuona naye ni mchezaji ingawaje si wa kiwango cha juu kwasababu hana mazoezi ya mara kwa mara ya kucheza mpira hivyo kuwa katika mazungumzo ni kweli
Alikiba only has clout in Kenya and Tanzania unlike Diamond Platnumz who gets media coverage in countries like Nigeria where foreign artists are rarely featured anywhere in their industry.
Bongo actress Suzan Michael alias ‘Pretty Kind’ reveals why she thinks Alikiba is not a big deal outside the boundaries of Tanzania and Kenya.
The actress stresses that Alikiba can’t be compared with Diamond Platnumz because of the influence the latter commands in foreign countries.
Popular artist not a global star
Pretty Kind claims that Alikiba has failed to have a global impact like Diamond because he has an inflated sense of accomplishment. She also says Alikiba is easily annoyed and likes ‘catching feelings’.
“Alikiba ni msanii maarufu wala sio staa, mimi nimekaa nje kwaio nimekuwa nikiona watu wanavyomfatilia diamond na kufatilia nyimbo zake lakini watu hawamjui kiba.wakati mwingine huwezi kujua ni wapi mtu anakosea lakini kwa Alikiba naona kama anatabia ya kuvimba na kujiona amemaliza kila kitu,” said Pretty Kind.
Alikiba married his Kenyan sweetheart Amina Khalef in colorful wedding that was held in Mombasa on April 19th 2018. The Bongo star held a separate white wedding in Dar es Salaam after the Muslim wedding in Mombasa.
Apparently Kiba and Amina Khalef are now expecting their first child together. The ‘Aje’ hit maker is however a father of four kids whom he sired with different baby mamas.
Alikiba caused mouths to wag when he posted a photo of his wife on his IG for the first time ever. The singer posed with his wife on the photo he shared.
Amina Khalef was dressed in a baggy camouflage jacket and netizens noticed a baby bump prompting many to send congratulatory messages to the couple.
Alikiba however ended up marrying a Kenyan beauty Amina Khalef after breaking up with Jokate who was very close to his mother and sister.
Alikiba’s sister Zabibu asserts that Jokate and her are still good friends despite her brother marrying another woman. Speaking to Over Ze Weekend at their home in Dar es Salaam, Zabibu praised Jokate saying she is a mature woman who didn’t end their friendship just because her brother broke up with her.
“Siwezi kuzungumzia kitu chochote kibaya kuhusiana na Jokate kwa sababu ni kama dada yangu kabisa ninamheshimu na ninampenda sana halafu pia tunaongea tu vizuri hatuna shida yoyote na ni msichana anayejielewa mno,” said Zabibu.
Diamond Platnumz and Alikiba’s beef dates back to early 2012. The two singers were about to work together for a collabo but something went wrong.
Back in 2012, Alikiba was the most sought after singer in Tanzania. Diamond was still struggling to establish his mark in the industry, he even reached out to Alikiba for a collabo just to gain mileage.
Speaking during an interview on Kwanza TV, Alikiba disclosed that trouble with Diamond started when Simba approached him and requested to be featured in his hit song ‘Single Boy’.
Alikiba dropped ‘Single Boy’ featuring Lady JayDee sometimes in May 2012. The song was however leaked before the video had been released.
Request turned down
Alikiba reveals that Diamond approached him and requested to be featured in the song after the audio was leaked. He further claims that Diamond disrespected him when he turned him down.
“There was a day he wronged me. I always support every artist in Tanzania and I don’t deny he (Diamond) sings well. Some new fans who don’t know the story will obviously side with Diamond, I never thought of doing a song with him but he called me after the song ‘Single Boy’ leaked. I had already collaborated with Lady JayDee on the song. He told me he would like to feature on the song, and that he already had a concept for the music video. But I told him I preferred the song to have a single boy single girl theme rather than two male artists,” Alikiba explained.
Alikiba claims that Diamond went on to tell bloggers that he (Alikiba) had deleted his (Diamond’s) verse from the song. Kiba says that he confronting Diamond about the issue and he denied going to blogs with the false reports.
“Around a week later, I hear from blogs that I had deleted his verses from the song when they were never there,” said Alikiba.
Diamond takes over
Alikiba says he is happy that Diamond went on to become Tanzania’s most successful singer. Kiba asserts that he is not a fan of Diamond though he admits that some of his songs are dope.
“I’m happy his music picked up. He is representing our country. He is very hardworking and sometimes I’m also a fan of good music. I’m not a fan of Diamond but I will say there are some songs he has done very well,” Alikiba said.
Alikiba’s baby mama moved to the Children’s Court demanding child support from the singer. Hadija Hassan claims her baby daddy has been slacking on his responsibilities of providing for their 5-year-old daughter.
Hadija is demanding so much from Alikiba. She wants her baby daddy to pay her Kes 56,500 for her daughter’s monthly upkeep.
Alikiba opened up about his predicament during an interview on Clouds FM. The ‘Seduce Me’ hit maker reveals that Hadija started frustrating him ever since she heard he was about to marry Amina Khaleef.
Kiba asserts that he has fulfilled all responsibilities as a father. He says Hadija demanded that he marries her or she takes full custody of their daughter.
“Mtoto nilikuwa namlea vizuri tu, kila wikiendi alikuwa anakuja nyumbani na kama kumuhudumia natimiza majukumu yangu, sijajua sababu ya mwenzangu kuniletea fujo ila sijawahi kupelekwa polisi. Mimi niliona kwenye gazeti, hayo malalamiko yapo Ustawi wa Jamii, haya yalitokana na mama yule alivyokuwa akitunyanyasa sisi sote familia yetu kuuhusu kukaa na mtoto ama kumuona,” said Alikiba.
The burial of Agnes Gerald ‘Masongange’ brought together Diamond Platnumz and Alikiba. The two arch rivals warmed up to each other during the burial.
Diamond and his entourage walked into the venue late when the burial ceremony was well under way, he walked to the dais where Alikiba was seated and shook his hands amid cheers from mourners.
Critics interpreted the handshake differently. Some people claim Alikiba was reluctant to shake hands with Diamond as he only extended his fist instead of palm when greeting his rival.
Different greetings styles
Alikiba explained the controversial handshake with Diamond Platnumz during an interview with Clouds TV. The ‘Seduce Me’ hit maker claims there are several ways to greet a person and that he chose a different style when he met Diamond.
“Kwangu hiyo ni salamu, zipo styel nyingi sana za salamu wengine wanasalimiana kwa mabega na wengine mikono nyuma na pia hata kwa mke wangu ambae ameolewa hivi karibuni huwezi kumpa mkono kawaida. Tatizo watu wanataka kuweka mambo yaonekana sio ya kawaida lakini hiyo ni salamu na mimi nimeona ni ya kawaida,” said Alikiba,
Hadija Hassan moved to the Children’s Court demanding child support from Alikiba. She claims her baby daddy has been slacking on his responsibilities of providing for their 5-year-old daughter.
Hadija’s timing of her case against Alikiba has however made many suspect ill motive. Critics claims the woman only sued Alikiba because she is jealous the singer married another woman Amina Khaleef.
Furthermore Hadija is demanding so much from her baby daddy. She wants Kiba to pay her Kes 56,500 for her daughter’s monthly upkeep. She also wants the singer to clear arrears for the months he didn’t pay child support. (Note that Alikiba was staying with the girl until Hadija took her away and went on to sue him).
Hadija claims that she decided to take her daughter from Alikiba because she was not satisfied with the environment her daughter was being brought up in.
She told Tanzanian daily Risasi Mchanganyiko that several other family issues also prompted her to get full custody of her daughter.
“Siyo kweli kwamba nilianza figisufigisu baada ya kusikia Kiba anaoa, bali niliamua kwenda kumchukua mwanangu kwa sababu nyingi sana. Hakuna anayeweza kujua na siwezi kuzungumza sana maana ni mambo ya kifamilia na familia zina mambo mengi sana.
“Isitoshe mwanangu bado ni mdogo hajafikisha umri wa miaka saba bado ndiyo maana nikaona ni vyema kukaa na mwanangu kwa kuwa nilikuwa siridhishwi na malezi aliyokuwa akipata, nikaongea na baba yake, nikamchukua mtoto wangu na hapo ndipo mambo yalipobadilika,” said Hadija Hassan.

Shortly after launching Wasafi TV yesterday, the now popular music TV on Channel 122 on the Azam Decoder left many talking after playing Kiba’s song.
Diamond Platnumz reveals his reasons for supporting Kiba
Well, having beefed for years; this came as a major surprise to fan who quickly went on to share screenshots on Instagram. This comes shortly after Diamond Platnumz told Times FM’s Playlist show;
Fighting with Ali does not help me in any way and I don’t gain anything. It does not add or reduce anything so why would I do it… We need to show young artistes that we got the chance and we used it well and not to create hate
However, Wasafi also played one of Nikki Mbishi’s songs who went on to thank them by writing to say;
Nikki sent out this message to Wasafi TV “Asante #WASAFITV nyie mmecheza wimbo wangu #NIMEKUMISS bila hata mimi kuwaletea,najua ndio mnaanza ila msisahau kuendelea hivi hivi.Hakuna kitu kinachojenga na kuimarisha misingi ya sanaa kama ushindani wenye usawa ‘Fair Competition’ hii inamaanisha anayestahili na apate na asiyestahili akose japo #FITNA zipo tu…Kila la kheri kwenye hii ligi ya mbuzi kuna siku daraja litapanda tutacheza ya ng’ombe na mpaka tembo nini simba.
Diamond Platnumz, a person who the world believes hates fellow Tanzanian singer Alikiba, shared that the two have never been enemies and it’s just people talking and trying to start something between them.
“Fighting with Ali does not help me in any way and I don’t gain anything. It does not add or reduce anything so why would I do it,” said Diamond in a radio interview Times FM recently.
Media fueling hate
There might be no beef between the two but tension between their camps has always been crystal clear. Though the two have always tried downplaying it, the media has always followed the drama and capitalized on it fully.
