Gone too soon

Alikiba and his Father

Tanzanian Singer Ali Saleh Kiba aka Alikiba is mourning the death of his father.

The sad news of the death of Mzee Saleh Kiba was shared by Clouds Media Group, indicating that Mzee Saleh passed on, while undergoing treatment at Muhimbili Hospital in Dar es Salaam.

“Tanzia: Baba wa msanii AliKiba @officialalikiba (Mzee Saleh Kiba) Amefariki Dunia alfajiri ya leo katika Hospitali ya Taifa Muhimbili alipokuwa amelazwa. Taarifa Juu ya Mazishi zitatolewa baada ya ndugu kukaa kikao. Inna lillahi wainna ilayhi rraajiun. Pole sana kwa Familia ya KingKiba” reads a statement from Clouds Media.

For a longtime, King Kiba has managed to keep his family low key and they only meet the public eye on special occasions.

Last year, the Seduce Me hit maker surprised many of his followers after he shared photos of his father, as he rarely talks about him.

In an interview with East African TV (EATV), Kiba mentioned that his mother played a very big role in nurturing his singing talent unlike his father who was always travelling, and that’s why he rarely talked about him. He added that he respects the privacy of his family members.

“Baba yangu kiukweli alikuwa ni international driver, alikuwa anasafiri mara kwa mara nchi tofauti tofauti yaani kuchafua bara la Afrika zima. Kwa hivyo alikuwa yupo busy sana muda mwingine alikuwa anaweza kukaa nje ya nchi hata mwezi mmoja au hata mitatu,” said Alikiba.

The Kings Records CEO, is a brother to Musician AbdulKiba and Zabibu Kiba.
