Bongo flava veteran Ali Kiba has responded to an invitation from his perceived rival Diamond Platnumz to be one of the performers in the upcoming Wasafi Festival.

Diamond on Monday appeared to extend a hand of friendship to King Kiba and requested him to participate in the inaugural festival in Mtwara set for November 24.

One of Diamond’s manager, Sallam, is said to have had a sitdown with Ali Kiba’s RockstarAfrica and a deal was struck despite fears that Alikiba would turn down the request due to their rivalry.

However, Ali Kiba has stated that he is willing to be part of the Wasafi Festival as a sponsor and not a performer. If the offer is accepted, Alikiba will sponsor the event through his energy drink brand MoFaya that was launched in April.

“Baada ya subra ya muda mrefu hivi karibuni nitawatangazia bidhaa yetu pendwa ya Mofaya inapatikana wapi na kwa kiasi gani. Pia ndugu zangu Wasafi tumepata salamu zenu, nashukuru kwa mualiko wenu ila bahati mbaya sitoweza kushiriki kwa sasa kutokana na majukumu ya kuzindua Mofaya katika nchi zingine.

“Hata hivyo tusingelipenda kuwaacha hivi hivi, tupo tayari kuwapa support kwa kudhamini tamasha lenu kupitia MofayaEnergydrink ili kuweza kusukuma mbele gurudumu la maendeleo ya sanna yetu Tanzania na Africa,” Alikiba.

He added that his management will keep engaging Wasafi in actualizing the partnership.
