I am not dating Ali Kiba, top radio host denounces claims


Tanzania’s Clouds FM stunning presenter Diva the Bawse has refuted claims that she is dating the country’s top music talent Ali Kiba.

Reports which have linked the two romantically spread recently when one of Tanzania’s gossip tabloids published an article claiming Kiba and Diva are an item.

The sassy radio queen early this week took to her official Instagram handle to come out clean on the rumours.

“There’s a newspaper which published an article claiming Ali Kiba and I are dating. Without even a shred of shame, they used a photo of Kiba and I in the studio. Really? Since when? Ali is my good friend,” wrote Diva.

“I can swear I have never been in a relationship with Kiba; even once. I am now focusing on my work and I have a lot of plans. I don’t want to be linked with relationships,” firmly stated the presenter.

Diva observed the local media prioritises sensational news as opposed to constructive information which should often be highlighted, if not applauded.

“I conduct interviews which trend in Africa and beyond; why are they not writing about that? I have Diva Beauty Products from the United Kingdom; why are they not publishing that? Come on now!” retorted the media personality.

“I urge you (media) to write about my ‘levels baby levels (great)’ interviews. That is what matters to me; I will appreciate,” said Diva.

The radio host says it is not the first time publications have romantically linked her to men she is not dating.

“Well about GK too you have written! (King Crazy) GK is such a great heart; a very special man. I am going to cherish him forever.”

Ostensibly furious, she added: “My main focus is to get on my grind and pursue my career. You all leave me alone!”

Kiba kisses Diva on stage

In March, 2015 Tanzanian showbiz was fraught with claims that Ali Kiba and Diva are an item after the radio girl kissed the singer on stage.

Diva seemingly enjoyed Ali K’s kiss and even went ahead to share the video on her Instagram page.

It is believed the respected Bongo artiste was prompted to kiss the popular radio girl by fans who were present at the event hosted by Diva.

A section of the fans questioned the act; however, the popular radio presenter had no apologies, but appreciation for the kiss with a post which read: “Having Fun with @officialalikiba. Massive show… Thank you guys for coming. Kiba thanks for the kiss, you are such a good kisser. It is going to kill me. Lol #Joking.”

Diva is also a recording artiste who has featured in a collabo with Diamond Platnumz in their song, Piga Simu.
