Tanzanian singer and Kings Music Records boss Alikiba has explained his long absence from the music scene.
Speaking to the press on Wednesday, King Kiba said that one of the reasons he does not release music every other time is because he values the quality of music he makes, which takes time.
He added that he also took time to concentrate on his Kings Music Records artistes who have not all released music.
Alikiba stated that as soon as they all release music, he will also release his own music, adding that he has a new artiste that he is set to launch in the next few days.
“Mimi always inakuaga hivi, tena hii ni afadhali na sidhani kama eti nimeshuka ama nimekuwa mzembe kwa kazi yangu. Mziki ndivyo ulivyo kila biashara ina season yake na nilikaa miaka mitatu before, na uliona. Ile nilikuwa na reason. Lakini nimerelease nyimbo mwaka jana inaitwa Mshumaa. Sema kama una kiu na ngoma usiseme ni uzembe ama nini. Mashabiki wanataka kila siku na inastahili wapewe. Miminikachofanya tu nikama wanavyo hitaji lakini nataka wanisamehe na waeewe lengo la mziki wangu na thamani ya mziki ambao naufanya. Ninafurahi Zaidi nikitoa ngoma ambayo inakufurahisha. Nachukua time yangu. Lakini vile vile wasanii wangu ilikuwa bado hawajatoa nyimbo so imepelekea mimi kupumzika kidogo na kuconcerntrate na wao mpaka wamalize kufanya videos na nyimbo zao zitoke zote. Sasa hivi amebaki msanii mmoja ambaye natakikana kumrelease hivi karibuni. Akisha huyu mimi natoa ngoma,” said Kiba.
The father of five spoke during the launch of Samakiba football tournament jersey in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
