Why Alikiba has postponed honeymoon in Venice
Newly wed Bongo flava star Alikiba has put on hold his honeymoon plans in order to close some business deals including performance at a concert on Friday night in Nairobi.
Alikiba tied the knot with his Kenyan spouse Amina Rikesh in an elaborate union which involved two weddings on April 19 in Mombasa and another on the April 29 in Dar es Salaam.
The couple was scheduled to fly to Venice, Italy for their honeymoon immediately after the second wedding.
However, Nairobi News understands that the Aje hitmaker has now shelved the honeymoon plans to a later date to attend to some unfinished businesses.
One of the said businesses is a performance at gig that he had signed with Safaricom on Friday night in Nairobi.
The artiste secretly jetted into the country on Friday morning for the invite-only gig, just like his rival Diamond Platnumz did twice early this year to perform in private concerts.
“Alikiba hasn’t yet gone for his honeymoon, he has postponed it for a later date. And as we speak he’s already in town. He landed at the Jomo Kenyatta international Airport at about 11 am in readiness of the Safaricom concert which happens tonight (Friday night),” a source told Nairobi News.
It’s is also understood that after the Safaricom gig Alikiba could be heading to South Africa to close up a deal with energy drinking company MoFaya.
The company is set to officially launch the product in East Africa with Alikiba as the head of its regional team.
Alikiba is understood to have purchased a majority of shares in the South African company making him one of the leading shareholders and the agreement between the two parties is to use his image to sell the products in East Africa.
Of late Alikiba has been promoting the Mofaya product that has his face on the can of the energy drink.
However, the agreement between Alikiba and the company is yet to be concluded and this could be one of the main reasons for him to shelve his honeymoon plans for now.
