Bongo artiste Alikiba could be among players in the new season of Tanzanian Premier League which kicks off next month.
The singer is set to sign for Premier League outfit Coastal Union which was promoted last season.
The club’s chairman, Steven Mguto, revealed to a radio station that they are currently in talks with the musician to sign him as their new player.
“To be honest we are left with very few days to complete our transfers and I guess we will know that in the next two days or so. We are finalizing the contracts of other players but we can’t say the same for him (Alikiba) because he is yet to sign anything. What if he changes his mind? But to some extent we are interested in signing him, if all goes well,” Mguto said
The chairman said they wouldn’t mind having the singer on their side despite him not training.
Speculation is rife that the Coastal Union is more interested in Alikiba’s image to help market the club rather than his services on the pitch.
In the recent, past Alikiba has been involved in several friendly matches.
The singer is yet to comment on the matter
