Diamond sets record straight on long time beef with fellow singer AliKiba

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.

Diamond said that the media has been trying to fuel hate between them which is wrong.

We need to show young artistes that we got the chance and we used it well and not to create hate,” he said.

Joho’s influence over Alikiba evident as Tanzanian star cancelled German tour to perform at Nasa rally

Nasa’s final public rally was held at Uhuru park on Saturday August 5th, the same day Alikiba was supposed to perform in Frankfurt, Germany. But he cancelled the tour anyway.

Alikiba and Hassan Joho are best friends forever, the Tanzanian singer and Willy Paul composed campaign songs for the flamboyant Mombasa governor.

Joho was the force behind Alikiba and Willy Paul’s performance at Uhuru park. Sultan pulled strings to make sure ‘Aje’ hit maker was at Nasa final rally even when he was supposed to perform in Frankfurt, Germany the same day.

Alikiba performs at Uhuru Park

On Wednesday Alikiba apologized to fans who were waiting for him to perform in Frankfurt, he didn’t state the reason why he cancelled the tour but after Saturday’s performance at Uhuru park the reason was clear to everyone.

“To my dearest fans in Germany. I am sad to announce that due to reasons we can’t control, I won’t be in Frankfurt, Germany this weekend on the 5th August. I will make it up to you in near future… you will get to turn up with the King. Thank you. Ich liebe dich. King Kiba,” Alikiba wrote on social media.
