Top Tanzanian musician Ali Kiba and his girlfriend identified as Amina Khaleef have fallen out bitterly over pictures, which surfaced online, showing Ali Kiba enjoying the company of another woman, identified as Carlo, in Mwanza.
A source close to Kiba and Amina told Tanzania’s Amani newspaper that the singer’s flame often feels insecure, when she sees her lover in the company of other women.
“All is not well between Ali Kiba and Amina. They recently argued bitterly!” the insider intimated.
“You know Amina stays in Mombasa, and given the distance factor, she feels that the Mwana hit-maker could be cheating on her every time she sees a picture of him getting cozy with another woman,” added the source.
“It has since been clarified that Kiba and Carlo have nothing going on between them, but Amina would not hear any of it. She has literally refused to listen to her boyfriend, Ali Kiba.”
Amani reached out to Kiba on phone for comment, but he did not pick up the calls.
When one of Kiba’s managers, who sought anonymity, was reached for comment, he confirmed that Kiba and his lover were undergoing relationship issues, but expressed optimism that the couple will manage to iron out their differences.
“When it comes to matters love, issues here and there must arise. It is normal. He (Kiba) and his lover are currently facing problems with their relationship. It is not the first time. Just like previous cases, I believe they will find solutions to their problems,” said Kiba’s manager.
Kiba was, previously, rumoured to be dating Tanzanian model-cum-businesswoman, Jokate Mwegelo, but none of the two came out to deny or confirm authenticity of the reports, with Kiba maintaining they were “good friends”.
Ali Kiba was last week spotted in Mombasa in the company of the county governor, Hassan Joho, who is the singer’s close friend.
Besides checking on his buddy, the Mombasa county chief, Kiba seemingly traveled into the country to bury the hatchet with his lover, Amina.
