Konde Music Worldwide founder Harmonize has come under harsh criticism after he announced a show in Kahama a few days after Diamond Platnumz and his Wasafi crew had a mega event in the town.
Over the weekend, Harmonize and his Konde Gang team were in Mtwara while the Wasafi team was in Kahama. Both teams had amazing performances bringing the respective towns to a standstill.
After the Mtwara event, Harmonize announced that the Konde Gang team will be heading to Kahama for their next show.
“I love my Tanzania, I love my East Africa and I love Africa worldwide and I believe one day my music will be there. But trust me there is no place I feel comfortable like my home in Mtwara….I was born here….Next is Kahama, Kahama get ready I am coming to shut down I’m coming to collect…” he said.
Harmonize’s announcement did not augur well with a section of fans who felt that he was trying to compete and copy what Diamond is doing.
A section of fans claimed that by organizing a show in Kahama one week after Wasafi left the town, Harmonize hopes to send a message that he is capable of matching or even outdoing Wasafi's performance in the town.
This is not the first time Harmonize has been accused of copying Diamond.
A few months ago, Diamond was invited to perform during Simba Day and landed at the stadium in a chopper. On the other hand, Harmonize was invited for a performance at Yanga Day and arrived on a zip line, and struggled to make his way to the stadium. At one point, he almost fell.
