The popular singer has been taken to court by a businesswoman who claims he has been neglecting his responsibilities of providing for their five-year-old daughter since February 2017.
According to sources, the artiste has been taken to court by a businesswoman with the name Hadija Hassan, who claims Alikiba has been slacking on his responsibilities of providing for their five-year-old daughter.
Hadija moved to the Childrens’ Court in Kisutu, Dar es Salaam – the same court Hamisa Mobetto sued Diamond Platnumz on April 17, 2018 – demanding child support.
In her claims, Hadija say she leaves in Magomeni estate, in the Tanzanian capital and earns her living through the sale of second-hand clothes.
Hadija also claims she gave birth to her daughter with Ali Kiba in January 2013 Miko Hospital, Dar es Salaam and that the musician has violated the Tanzanian Children’s Act 2009 regarding child support.
“According to the Children’s Act 2009, the accused is supposed to cater for the child’s food (Tsh150,000), fruits (Tsh50,000), extra food (Tsh50,000), entertainment and leisure (Tsh100,000), clothing (Tsh60,000), medical expenses (Tsh50,000) which amounts to Tsh460,000 (Sh20,000) in total,” Hadija said while making her case before the court.
Hadija also claims that Alikiba has failed to pay for their daughter’s school fees of Tsh950,000 (Sh41,250).
She now wants the court to compel the artiste to pay a total of Tsh1.3 Million (Sh56,500) for the child’s monthly upkeep as well as the ‘arrears’ of the months accrued since he stopped remitting the money.
Alikiba, who postponed his honeymoon trip to perform at Safaricom Gem Awards over the weekend, is yet to respond to the claims.
