Babu Tale buried his wife yesterday in a highly emotional affair at Morogoro, his ancestral home. And yes, I am not speaking about the scenes of Diamond’s manager weeping for his late wife, Shamsa Kombo Tale.
That was expected that Tale would be so torn after losing the mother of his children. The thing that left many in shock was the behaviour that Diamond’s manager Sallam SK unleashed on former WCB crew member, Harmonize.
This was seen on a video doing the rounds on social media where Sallam seemed to have pulled a petty move on the blonde-haired singer.
In the video, Sallam seems to avoid greeting Harmonize when the “Uno” singer extended his hand to greet him. The action received a lot of backlash especially considering that it was happening at a funeral which is considered sacrosanct for most battles.
Juma Lokole, Diamond’s friend decided to support Sallam’s reprehensible behaviour but fans were having none of it and told him as much.
In fact, his supportive comments unleashed a new torrent of emotion from them with Sallam getting some of the worst hate-mail he has ever gotten.
What the incident also shows is that there is still some ill-feeling left despite the relative indifference shown by the Wasafi crew after Harmonize left them in 2019.
Diamond and his crew have been silent on the issue and have rarely spoken about their former hit-maker. Funny thing is that Harmonize was the one who has thrown the majority of the shade at his former label.
He has gone on record complaining about the Sh. 22 million he had to pay WCB in order to break his contract with them. Not only that, but the blonde-haired singer has taken subtle digs at Diamond alleging that he is responsible for Rich Mavoko’s career stalling.
