Bongo star Ali Kiba will play in this season’s Tanzania premier league following a confirmation by Coastal Union Football club.
We had earlier reported that the bongo sensation could be signed by the team but it was still in discussion at the moment.
On Wednesday, the club announced, via its social media pages, that they have acquired the artiste’s services as a professional footballer.
“Welcome to Coastal Union,” the message from the Tanga based club read in part, complete with the musician’s photo in the team’s official jersey.
However, the 31-year-old singer, songwriter, is yet to officially announce or comment on this transfer leaving speculation that this development could in fact be a marketing stunt.
Alikiba plays has previously played as a striker for local amateur sides in Dar Es salaam and is also known to be an ardent fan of record Tanzanian league champions Yanga.
