Bongo flava star Alikiba has invited a former Head of State and a sitting governor as the VVIP guests during his forthcoming wedding, Nairobi News can reveal.
Alikiba has lately been a busy man finalizing preparations for the two weddings to his longtime Kenyan girlfriend Amina Rikesh this month.
The couple are set to wed in a Muslim ceremony next week (April, 19th) in Mombasa then hold another wedding the following week (April 29th) in Dar es Salaam.
Nairobi News has established that the two high profile guests on the invite list are Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho, who will grace the Mombasa wedding, while former Tanzanian president Jakaya Kikwete has been invited to the one in Dar.
According to close sources, just a day after he arrived from China, where he had gone to purchase luxurious furnishings to complete his posh home in Tabata, Dar es Salaam, Alikiba and his family paid a visit to Kikwete.
The nature of the visit is yet to be known, but word has it that it could have been meant to invite Kikwete to grace the planned wedding in Dar.
Perhaps to confirm the visit, on Sunday Alikiba posted on Facebook a photo of himself all smiles with the retired president at the latter’s home.
Governor Joho’s invitation doesn’t also come as a surprise since he is a close friend of the Bongo flava artiste.
Sources have also indicated that other than Joho and Kikwete, several top politicians and celebrities from Kenya and Tanzania will attend the two weddings.
