He went on to ask people to refrain from sharing negative comments.
"Hakuna sababu ya kuandika negativity Ndio maana wanasemaga kutoa ni moyo na sio utajiri na ukiona mpk tunampost mwenzetu basi ujue tunahitaji nguvu ya ziada kutoka kwenu ili msije mkasema hatukuwaambia❤️."
Harmonize said he made a call to fellow singer Mwana Fa who is now the Deputy Minister for Culture, Arts, and Sports and was assured that the singer's medical bill will be sorted.
"Hongera sana bro, simu moja tu na everything is sorted, matibabu yanaendelea tena ya uhakika. Mambo ya kupaza sauti tunayasahau katika kipindi hiki cha uongozi wa mama. Get well soon, we love you."
