At 7am, some people are actually on their way to offices, other are still sleeping while many are just getting prepared for work. But Tanzanian singer Alikiba was busy exchanging his vows with his wife at 7am on Saturday.
The musician decided to do this in order to dodge the paparazzi and other gate crushers and indeed he succeeded because the ceremony which was a private ceremony one was successful with only a handful of invited guests including close friends and family members.
The Islamic ceremony started with an Ummullkthum Mosque ceremony before Alikiba got the consent to go receive his bride Amina for the evening ceremony after which a Nikkah went on throughout the night and then the official handing over happened at 7am.
23-year-old Amina had Mombasa Governor Joho as the guest of honor and later in the evening an indoor reception happened at the Governor’s mansion still with only a handful of people in attendance.
Alikiba is one of Tanzania’s biggest artistes and recently thrilled fans in Kampala at the Blankets And Wine. He also featured at a celebrity match organised for charity where he showed his silky skills. We wish him a happy marriage.
