Diamond Platmunz’s Wasafi Classic label have ended their interest in bringing fellow Tanzanian singer Ali Kiba to their Wasafi Festival.
They were reportedly desperate on bringing the Aje singer on board to perform at the festival which is scheduled to take place on Nov. 11th and Nov. 12th.
Diamond’s manager, Babu Tale was responding to Ali Kiba’s recent post that they should leave him alone after trying to make him attend the show.
“Before going to the US, Babu Tale reached out to Ali Kiba to ask him to be at the festival. Music is about competition, but when it comes to big things like this, people come together,” he said.
He added that WCB trying to push Ali Kiba to attend the festival has no personal ties to it and was based on improving the industry and having tried to work out a deal, they have stopped talking about him.
“These things are not personal, no wonder Nigerians are going far. We should not accept to be split apart by people who just want to hate. By doing that, we are killing the industry.Amesema unikome, na mimi nimemkoma, hata kumzungumzia, tumemkoma,” he said .
Following the recent departure of Harmonize, Tale confirmed that he has a busy schedule but they hope he’ll change it to fit theirs so that he can perform.
“Festival ni yetu sote, Harmonize, huku ndio nyumbani kwake. He has his own schedule but we believe he will reschedule it, so that he will come for the festival,” said Babu.
