This music knows an immense popularity due in particular to Tanzania which the media strives to promote. Although the Bongo Flava has been a success in the United States, this sound is incomparable. The Bongo Flava has its own rules and its interpreters / writers, they have nothing to envy their Black brothers of the American continent, because they know particularly what they are and what they do. Bongo Flava is rooted in Rap, R n B and hip hop from America.

Ali’s net worth is estimated at around 4$ million. Most of the money comes from his songs and music performances.
He has also tried acting and songwriting. He seems to be a very talented young man who can turn everything he touches into profit.
Ali Kiba is a very popular singer and actor in Tanzania and he has many endorsement deals with large companies there. This allows him to earn a massive profit yearly and we can expect his net worth to rise in the future.so far he is still working with music, but he has plans of venturing into the business world.
He is very active on his social media and posts photos and videos from his personal life, but also from his performances. Being such a huge star gives him a large platform to call upon some social issues. He tries being involved in the community and listening to the voices of people who follow his music.
Ali Kiba has many followers and subscribers on his social media platforms, and the number only seems to be growing larger. In his big career, he managed to receive many nominations and awards.
He was nominated and won awards on the Tanzanian Music Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards, Watsup Muusic Awards and Nafca.
All of these recognitions are simply a motivation to work even harder and to keep surprising his fans with new music and projects. Until he does that, we have his older hits to listen and enjoy.
A few months ago Abdul Kiba, his youngest son and AliKiba, was quoted negatively by the media that he was ready to join the label of the WCB Diamond Diamond Diamond statement which brought problems to AliKiba’s fans and his team. The singer who does well with his video song yo Bayoyo ’has told Bongo5 that the statement made him appear a traitor.
“AliKiba felt bad because he knew if his brother had been a traitor or were people who had another definition and it is something that is impossible but I could do interviews and put things right,” said Abdul Kiba.
Explaining his speech and misinterpreted Abdul Kiba said “On the day I did the interview they misunderstood my conversation, you know when you hear that there is no free work, any work should be paid, I agreed that if the WCB will need me for a colony or show I can do it work but I did not give you the statement that I could go label them because even I have my label,”.
The singer also thanked the team members for Kiba by continuing to support their artists and their work.

Ali Kiba seems to be a true heartbreaker because he continues going from one omen to another. Three children to three different women is proof enough that this 32-year old still hasn’t found his soul mate. The reason behind the break up with his partners seems to be the lack of respect and understanding, because his partners seem to be jealous of other women who adore his songs and him.
Ali Kiba is a very private person so there aren’t many information about his personal life or romantic life. We can only assume that he is settled for now, and that he seems to have found love with his current wife. He hasn’t announced any new projects, but we can assume that he is going to be releasing something new pretty soon. Until he decides to treat us with something new and exciting we can enjoy the songs he released few years ago.
