Top Tanzanian musician Harmonize has showered praises on Kenyan women, saying “they have created an identity, which is unique to them, to an extent a non-Kenyan would automatically spot them in a group comprising women of different nationalities”.
“Kenyan women are beautiful. I like how they have created an identity unique to them. They know how to take care of themselves, they know how to dress their bodies, they are sophisticated and are good at embracing modernity,” said Harmonize in an exclusive interview with eDaily on Wednesday, April 12.
Harmonize, who is in Kenya on a media tour, also spoke briefly about his relationship with compatriot, actress Jacqueline Wolper, who some time back was rumoured to have dumped him after he showed selfish tendencies in the relationship.
“It is true that we had fallen out but we managed to reconcile. Yes, it could be true that Wolper gave a lot in the relationship than I did, but again newspapers too, sometimes, do lie,” he said.
Harmonize’s popular music include: Matatizo, Bado featuring Diamond Platnumz, among others. He is currently signed under Diamond Platnumz’s record label, Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB).
Harmonize is a second non-Kenyan artiste to praise Kenyan women on their unique identity.
In February, 2017, celebrated Nigerian actor Mike Ezuruonye waxed lyrical about the beauty of Kenyan women, saying in the whole world he has not seen women who ooze confidence in their natural beauty than Kenyan women.
Speaking exclusively to eDaily on February 3, Mike Ezuruonye said he arrived at that conclusion after keen observation during his past and recent visits to different countries across the globe.
“Kenyan women are natural. I have been to lots of places across the world – and I have travelled all over Africa, but what fascinates me most about Kenyan women is how they embrace their identity.
“And what I mean with identity is that it is so fulfilling to see people or women who want to identify with their own. From how they (Kenyan women) rock their wrist bands, clothing or necklaces…something speaks Kenyan about them – beyond their attire and accessories. That really fascinates me about them. And when you talk about natural Africanness, in regards to female beauty, then Kenya scoops position one in the whole world,” said Mike Ezuruonye.
Mike Ezuruonye was in Kenya for the premiere of a movie titled Brother Jekwu.
