The relationship between Tanzanian singers Harmonize and WCB Wasafi Founder Diamond Platnumz seems to officially be headed south.
This comes following months of speculation about Harmonize ditching the Diamond-founded record label to start his own.
Diamond, during a performance in an undated video recently posted on Instagram by Urban News 254, altered the words to his 2018 hit song ‘Baila’ to fire shots at Konde Boy, as Harmonize is popularly known.
“Siunajua wanamuziki vitabia vyao wamejawa tamaa…hasa wale, kina Harmonize, wamejawa tamaa,” sang the East African heavyweight.
[“As you know musicians by nature are greedy…especially those like Harmonize, they are full of greed.”]
The two superstars have long tried to dismiss the allegations of Harmonize’s exit but, as they say, “what is hidden in the dark always comes to light”…or, according to Swahili folk, “Palipo na moshi, hapakosi moto.”
Reports of the exit recently gathered weight after the ‘Never give up’ hitmaker officially changed his Instagram bio.
Harmonize removed the ‘Signed under WCB Wasafi’ tag that is common with all artists signed under the label – including Rayvanny, Mbosso, Lava Lava, and Queen Darleen – leaving only ‘East African Young Star’ and ‘#WCB4Life.”
Harmonize was also left out of the Wasafi Festival 2019 tours before, most recently, missing out on the ‘One Africa Music Fest’ under which he was booked while still signed to Wasafi Records.
Tanzanian music pundits have since opined that the silent split between the two began after Diamond, in a song, intimated that Harmonize’s Italian girlfriend cheated on him with the his (Diamond’s) then bodyguard, Mwarabu Fighter.
Mwarabu was fired from the label and has since established his own private security firm.
