Why Ally B Family Requested His Music To Stop Playing Posthumously

The late Ally B was laid to rest in Mombasa, marking the end of a life that had resonated with many through his music.

The late singer was given an Islamic funeral service before being interred at the Maziara ya Cobra cemetery in Mishomoroni, Mombasa County.

Among the mourners were celebrities, politicians, fans, family, neighbors, and friends, all gathered to bid their final farewell to a beloved artist.

However, what stood out during the funeral was a heartfelt plea made by Ally B‘s brother. He made a humble request to radio stations, DJs, and entertainers, asking them to refrain from playing Ally B’s songs posthumously.

“Tunaomba news anchors, radio presenters, ma-DJs, tafadhali naomba, nyimbo za Ally msicheze. Tafadhali naomba,” Ally B’s brother expressed.

The reasoning behind this request goes beyond a mere preference. It is rooted in the family’s desire to let the late singer’s soul rest in peace.

They believe that playing his songs after his passing may not be in his best interest. Instead, they ask those who want to celebrate his memory to offer prayers for him.

“Msicheze miziki yake tena. Naomba iwe anayetaka akimkumbuka amtilie dua. Lakini msipige miziki yake, tafadhali. Twaomba,” he further emphasized.

The family, through Ally B’s brother, sought the support of the media in passing on their message to ensure that their wishes would be respected. “Nyimbo zake tosha. Muombeeni lakini msipige miziki yake. Mimi kama ndugu yake nimesema,” he concluded.

The decision to halt the playing of Ally B’s music posthumously has its roots in Islamic teachings.

According to Islamic beliefs, music, especially secular music, is considered haram (forbidden, inviolable, and sacred). The request made by the family is in line with their understanding of these teachings.

Ally B burialIslamic tradition holds that once a musician passes away, their songs and musical creations should be eliminated.

This is due to the belief that playing the music of the deceased, particularly for purposes contrary to Islamic morals and teachings, may result in punishment for the departed, even in the afterlife.

“For a Muslim, if they used to make music, once they pass, it is advised to get rid of all their recordings and any other secular things they might have produced because every time the songs are replayed or watched, and someone sins by listening to the deceased person’s music, the deceased will be severely punished by the angels and thus won’t have peace in his afterlife,” explained a source familiar with Islamic customs.
