fter Ali Kiba came out blaming Diamond and his team for his poor performance in the recent hyped Mombasa show concert, Diamond, through his manager has fired back saying the singer messed himself up while trying to show he’s a bigger artist than Wizkid.
“First of all let me make it clear that I wasn’t there when he performed,” said Diamond’s manager Salam Mendez on mambo Mseto hosted by Willy M Tuva.
“Everyone saw that, All cameras were focusing on me. And they saw me leave. What happened is that After Venassa Mdee, Ali Kiba was supposed to come on stage but 30 minutes later he wasn’t there. He wanted Wizkid to perform before him and we were on a tight schedule. That’s where all the trouble started.”
Ali kiba claimed that Mendez was standing right behind him when he was performing and suddenly things started going wrong. Kiba says the manager wasn’t supposed to be there but Mendez had an explanation for that.
“I was there not only for the show but to make connections. Plus Wizkid’s managers is Diamond’s manager in West Africa. Everything about Diamond in West Africa he handles it. So I was also meeting him and Chris Brown in the event. So Ali Kiba is misleading people saying we messed the sound and should apologise for that.”
