Ali Kiba’s songs praised by Tanzanian government days after banning Diamond's songs

'Seduce Me' heavy hitter Ali Kiba commended

The Magufuli led government through its Assistant Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture Juliana Shonza have spoken well about the nature of Ali Kiba’s music works.

Shonza referred to Ali Kiba as a big international artist who represents Tanzania well and whose song doesn’t have ‘ratchet’ lyrics.

She further stated that the government of Tanzania not only want their music to grow but also prosper while preserving the Tanzanian culture.

Part of her statement read;

“Alikiba ni msanii mkubwa wa kimataifa, anaiwakilisha nchi vyema, lakini haimbi nyimbo lugha chafu wala video ambazo hazina maadili. Sisi kama wizara tunataka sanaa iende pamoja na ukuaji wa maadili ya nchi - tutoe burudani lakini tulinde utamaduni wetu. “Sheria hairuhusu wimbo wa msanii husika uliofungiwa hapa Tanzania kwenda kuifanyia show nje ya nchi. Endapo atafanya hivyo atakuwa anakiuka kanuni na sheria za nchi.”

The musician, who is Nairobi Governor Hassan Joho’s close friend has been in the music industry for a long time.

His relationship the Kenyan beauty who is identified as Amina Khaleef had ups and downs. The two quarreled last year after photos surfaced where Ali Kiba enjoyed the company of other women which made Amina uncomfortable and insecure.

Before he dated the Kenyan beauty word had it that he was dating Jokate Mwegelo who is a Tanzanian mode.
