In 2017, Ally B—real name Ali Khamisi Mwaliguli—tried his hand at politics by running on a Jubilee Party ticket for a seat in the County Assembly in Kisauni, Mombasa County’s Junda Ward. Nevertheless, Musumba Raphael Bwire of the ODM party prevailed over him. He was a gifted musician whose music was widely played in the entertainment scene in Kenya, the Coast, and even outside our boundaries.

Over the years, Nyota Ndogo, Cannibal, Jay Crack, Mchafuzi, Dhilly Dhilly, Producer Nova, Sha Biggy, Chikuzee, and Susumila had developed a tight working relationship with Ally B.

As friends and partners, they had traveled widely and shared the stage at about a thousand performances together over the years. The burial for Ally B would take place today, on Thursday, November 2.
