Word on the street has it that Nasa flag bearer Raila Odinga chartered a jet for Ali Saleh Kiba to join him in thanksgiving celebrations.
According to reports, the ‘Seduce Me’ singer was flown private to hang out with Raila and company to celebrate the Supreme Court ruling.
The Nation reports that the Bongo singer played a critical role in galvanizing support for NASA for his close ally Ali Hassan Joho.
The Mombasa governor and Ali Kiba have been spotted together on numerous occasions in Mombasa and Dar es Salaam. The singer also accompanied Governor Joho when he went to collect his certificate of re-election.
Last month, Ali Kiba canceled his German tour to perform at Nasa’s final public rally at Uhuru park.
According to the unverified reports by the local daily, it is understood that after the Supreme Court nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s’ win, Raila’s Camp was full of praise for all who supported their cause.
Attempts to reach Alikiba for a comment over the private jet issue have been futile but his assistant manager at his recording label Rockstar4000, Aidan Charlie Sleeve, confirmed there is an invite.
“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 it’s true Alikiba has been invited to Kenya but I wouldn’t want to talk much about the visit. All in all I would like to thank all Tanzanians and ask them to continue supporting great music from Kiba and all artistes signed to Rockstar.”
