Alikiba renews rivalry with Diamond
For years now, Diamond and Alikiba have been pitted against each other for the title of “King of Bongo flavor” music. But on Thursday, Kings Music Records boss Ali Saleh Kiba aka Alikiba blasted WCB CEO Chibu Dangote after being invited to perform at the Dar es Salaam edition of Wasafi Festival. Instead of Kiba accepting the invitation, he opted to caution Platnumz from bothering him over and over again, when clear he is not interested in their Festival.
King Kiba added that if the "Sikomi" maker doesn't back-off, he will be left with no option but expose the bad things he (Diamond) has been doing to him.
“Usiniletee mambo ya darasa la Pili unaniiibia penseli alafu unanisaidia kutafuta .(UNIKOME) Mwanaume huwa anaongeaga mara moja tu sasa ukitaka nikuweke uchi watu wajue unayonifanyia hata kwenye hilo tamasha hatokuja mtu sasa tuishie hapo nakutakia tamasha njema @diamondplatnumz #KingKiba,” said Alikiba.
It will be remembered that this is the second time Diamond is inviting Kiba to be part of Wasafi festival, the first time being last year.
In the 2018 invite, they both showed good will and the spirit of working together, but no one knows what happened after all was left to their management to come to an agreement, on how they would work collaborate.

Each and evrry time nikiona hii gari nitakuwa nakumbuka I have to work hard, nitakuwa nakumbuka I have a reason to wake up every morning kutoka nje kutafutia mtoi wangu na wife wangu. God awainue sana”.
