Why Raila has dispatched chartered jet for Alikiba

By THOMAS MATIKO September 5th, 2017 1 min read

Opposition leader, Raila Odinga, has reportedly chartered a jet for Ali Saleh Kiba to join him in thanksgiving celebrations.

The Seduce Me hit-make will get the rare opportunity to hang out with Raila, or Joshua, as his supporters have recently nick-named him.

It’s not by chance, however, as it is well-known that AliKiba, a crowd-puller, played a critical role in galvanising support for Nasa for his close ally (and may we add, former heartthrob before ‘Chilobae’ unseated him) Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho.

The two have been spotted severally in Dar es Salaam enjoying each other’s company.

You will remember that Alikiba also accompanied Governor Joho when he went to collect his certificate of re-election.


It is understood that after the Supreme Court nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s’ win, Mr Odinga’s camp was full of praise for all who supported their cause.

Attempts to reach Alikiba for a comment over the issue have been futile but his assistant manager at his recording label Rockstar4000, Aidan Charlie Sleeve, confirmed the reports.

“Ni kweli (Alikiba) ameitwa Kenya lakini nisingelipenda kulizungumzia hilo kwa udani. Kikubwa niwashukuru Watanzania na niwaombe tuendelee kuisapoti muziki mzuri kutoka kwa Kiba na wanamuziki wote wa Rockstar,” Aidan Charlie said.

(“Yeah, its true Alikiba has been invited to Kenya but I wouldn’t want to talk much about the visit. But all in all I would like to thank all Tanzanian and ask them to continue supporting great music from Kiba and all artistes signed to Rockstar.”)
