As 2016 takes the final lap, it is surely a year that will leave everlasting memories for songstress Knowless Butera. After walking down the aisle, the diva is expecting her child.

Why did Wizkid and Ali Kiba fight during Chris Brown’s concert?

Wizkid and Ali Kiba are some of the big artistes who performed at the Mombasa Rocks concert. However there was a supremacy battle between the two.

Normally in a concert where a big artiste is set to perform, the line up usually starts from the least famous and the most famous perform much later during the event. According to reports, Ali Kiba was set to perform before Wizkid but he wasn’t happy with this arrangement.

Ali Kiba felt he was a bigger artiste than Wizkid in Kenya so there was a standoff. In the end he won and got to perform after Wizkid.

However, things went wrong for Ali Kiba since he was only able to perform three songs to pave way for Chris Brown.
