BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,11TH MAY 2018-In the recent weeks fans of two bongo artists have Diamond platinumz and Alikiba been treated to what looked like differences in greetings when the two met at a burial ceremony .Fans feel it was not the best style to greet each other.Especially the way Ali Kiba extended his hand towards Diamond intending to greet him.
The two had met at the burial of Agnes Gerald ‘Masongange.
Diamond and his entourage walked into the venue late when the burial ceremony was well under way, he walked to the dais where Alikiba was seated and shook his hands amid cheers from mourners.
Critics interpreted the handshake differently. Some people claim Alikiba was reluctant to shake hands with Diamond as he only extended his fist instead of palm when greeting his rival.
Alikiba explained the controversial handshake with Diamond Platnumz during an interview with Clouds TV. The ‘Seduce Me’ hit maker claims there are several ways to greet a person and that he chose a different style when he met Diamond.
“Kwangu hiyo ni salamu, zipo styel nyingi sana za salamu wengine wanasalimiana kwa mabega na wengine mikono nyuma na pia hata kwa mke wangu ambae ameolewa hivi karibuni huwezi kumpa mkono kawaida. Tatizo watu wanataka kuweka mambo yaonekana sio ya kawaida lakini hiyo ni salamu na mimi nimeona ni ya kawaida,” said Alikiba,
