Wasafi (WCB) owner Diamond Platnumz has invited his longtime musical foe Ali Kiba for a concert organised by WCB.
Diamond reached out to Kiba on Monday, November 5, when he was launching Wasafi FM at the firm’s headquarters in Mbezi Beach, Dar es Salaam.
“Wasafi Festival will be for all the Tanzanian artistes and community. We want to ensure that any musician willing to work with us ahead of and on the day of the concert is given the opportunity. We’ll really be happy to have Ali Kiba on board. The event will be purely a Tanzanian affair,” said Diamond Platnumz.
“We wish to show people outside Tanzania that our music industry is huge. We want to send that message to our colleagues in Europe, the US, and Nigeria. I will really be happy to have Ali Kiba as part of the performers on that day,” said Diamond.
The “Nana” hit-maker says Wasafi Festival will incorporate talent search, road shows and tours of different parts in Tanzania, including Mtwara, Iringa, Morogoro, among other places.
Ali Kiba, in a satirical Instagram post, suggested he was not ready to accept Diamond’s request.
