In 2018, Harmonize revealed that the meaning of the lyrics behind his massive song “Kwangwaru” were very explicit. While many would have guessed as much, one would be hard-pressed to explain word for word what the singer was saying.
That brought up the question? Which other popular songs do people enjoy but have very different meanings from what we think they mean?
Some of those songs are below:
Like A Virgin – Madonna
The song shocked many when it was released. Unlike what many may think, the song is not about virginity but about a bad relationship.
Billy Steinberg, the writer of the song was left “emotionally battered” after a failed relationship. The like a virgin reference was him getting into a new one and feeling anew for it.
TLC – Waterfalls
The song may have a very catchy chorus but the subject matter that it relates to is very deep. The song’s lyrics (particularly the verses) tackle issues such as promiscuity, HIV/AIDS, and the illegal drug trade.
John Lennon – Imagine
One part of the Beatles released this song to near global acclaim. The song which had idealistic lyrics about a better world had an esoteric meaning behind it.
The song itself is an ode to communism. Lennon himself said about the song:
Because it’s sugarcoated it’s accepted. Now I understand what you have to do—put your message across with a little honey.
The Weeknd – Can’t Feel My Face
While most may think this song is about the love of a woman, the deeper meaning behind it will show you the The Weeknd’s great song-writing skills.
This song itself is about the singer talking about cocaine. The subject of the song is the artist’s love for the drug.
Lady Gaga – Poker Face
Lady Gaga has had many songs that have been long been debated about. Poker Face was definitely one of them. The singer herself clarified the meaning behind the song in an interview.
She admitted that “Poker Face” was written about her personal experience with bisexuality – where she was with a man, but fantasizing about being with a woman, hence the poker face.
There She Goes – Sixpence
For those of you who like soft rock and this song in particular, the meaning behind it is not about a man chasing a woman but something more sinister.
What could it be? Heroin. If you look closely at the lyrics, the “she” in question is actually heroin and the song tells of the rush of using the drug and how fleeting the high is.
Celebrities are always trying to widen their spheres, musically and also in the way that the public perceives them.
One of those ways can be in their fashion and style. Hairstyles are a wonderful way for a celeb to show off their uniqueness and individuality to the watching public.
But there are times when the celebs go wrong in the hairstyle that they choose. Some of those celebs are below;
This singer is the one who has caused me to write this article. The abomination on his head is not only terrible to look at, it is also a crime against humanity!
This is another celeb who cannot stick with one style and should be on this list several times as a serial offender. The fake locks epidemic have been popularised by East Africa’s most popular singer but they just don’t work on him.
I don’t get how he has been able to keep them despite the many women he has around him who can advise him against the style!
I think you are noticing a pattern here. Fake dreads are bad! Bahati decided to try out a new style when he went to Dubai with his wife Diana Marua.
The backlash he received was so bad that even his wife Diana campaigned for that ugly mop of hair to be removed. Bahati acquiesced and a toddler somewhere smiled.
The singer put one of most egregious hairstyles I have ever seen with his blonde noodle hairstyle. Again the fake dreads make a comeback.
The crooner is often recognised for his blonde hair but there are times that he has tried to forego the style in favour of Ghanaian lines that he wore at the Wasafi festival late last year.
I am torn on this one I must say.
The ‘Haleluyia’ singer loves dying his hair, with blonde and white being a favourite for him. The singer also seems to be copying a lot of the styles that Diamond has tried out. It isn’t like Diamond has a stellar record at choosing wonderful hairstyles.
As you can surmise the common thread among all these hairstyles is that the celebs who are trying them are stitching fake hair onto their sculpts, a result that is not pleasant to the eye.
It was no holds barred when Harmonize returned from his American tour and told about the tribulations Diamond Platnumz put him through.
Konde Music Worldwide CEO Rajab Abdul Kahali alias Harmonize shared details of his contract with former record label, WCB Wasafi and why he parted ways with them.
Harmonize claims Diamond Platnumz never appreciates musicians who become more influential than him. Harmonize said this is the reason why he left Wasafi Records. “Yeye akikutengenezea uadui, mashabiki wake wote wanakukataa na kisha unapotea.” he said.
He also told of a difficult contract as a signee ‘I was signed into a 10-year contract at WCB. Any money I earned within the contract, Diamond would take 60%, leaving me with 40%. I would have to add my own money to my share in order to push my music’
He also added that Diamonds mother Mama Dangote feared he would overshadow Diamond.
Kiba has now weighed in on the drama, advising Harmonize that it is what it is.
‘Mwambie Kondeboy aache kulia aulize wakubwa tunaishije na yule wa tandale’ He laughed off the comment
Diamond Platnumz has pretty much kept off from responding to Harmonizes accusations, but as we know the singer, he does so after much time of reflection. So may be soon he will open up?
Tanzanian singer Harmonize has finally unfollowed Diamond Platnumz. The singer took this step after being in a feud for over two years. But Diamond on the other hand still follows Harmonize on Instagram.
Harmonize and Diamond’s relationship scattered after the ‘Ushamba’ singer left Diamond owned label WCB to form his own, Konde Music.
Since then, the two have never seen eye to eye and at one point, Harmonize said he had to sell some of his property to pay WCB as compensation as he left the label before the contract had ended.
2015 was the year that Diamond took Harmonize under his wings as his mentee and signee and was introduced to the World.
Harmonize is just about concluding his tour of the US.
He landed in Los Angeles on Saturday October 9th, much tot he delight of his fans to mark the Uganda independence celebrations.
He has written a note celebrating two years since he launched his own record label, after leaving WCB.
He captioned a picture of artwork
“Happy…!!!! Happy …!!!!! Anniversary ❤❤ My Dream Team KONDE MUSIC WORLDWIDE @kondegang 🏁🏁🏁🏁 I can’t believe that we are (2) years Old Now 🥲🥲😭😭 it was Dream of Young Boy From Mtwara …!!! Ikagusa Watu wengi I can’t thank Everyone Enough But Trust Me this is Jus Bigging of So many things 🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁 Siraha Yeyu ni Watu na Watu Ni wewe Unaesoma Hapa …!!! Now You Made Verry Big Team in The East Africa 🏁🏁🏁🏁🏁 Siku Kama Ya Leo Ndio Niliitambulisha Rasmi @kondegang WE ON TOP OF THE F***** GAME ”
Harmonize is currently so bulked up that we didn’t see it coming.
He is rocking such a solid body that he captioned “ready for the summer” to show he is in the shape he always wanted.
We know that the singer goes had in the gym and below is proof.
Harmonize is currently trending after he was accused by a singer of trying to force her to love him adding that she met Harmonize at a club over the weekend and he demanded that she join his table. She refused and Harmonize reportedly went to her table with his bodyguards before throwing verbal assaults at her.
Harmonize’s ex girlfriend Fridah Kajala shared a video in a tattoo parlor covering up a regrettable tattoo of singer Harmonize.
This comes months after Harmonize also covered up her initial tatooed on his neck.
Kajala and her daughter Paula can be heard in a video discussing hoe she is finagling getting rid of that ‘dirty’ tattoo from her neck.
Paul, the daughter says the words as Fridah the mother agrees.
When Harmonize and Kajal started dating hey got coordinating tattoos H and K on their necks with each others initials printed. But after the fall out over intimate video leak, Harmonize rushed to get rid of Kajala’s memory.
It seems that there is never going to be a dull week in the life of Konde Music Worldwide CEO, Harmonize. The muscular musician is in the news again after covering up a tattoo he got of ex-girlfriend, Frida Kajala.
In a post seen by Classcic105, the “Birthday” singer replaced the tattoo he had of Kajala’s name initial ‘K’ with ‘Konde Gang’.
Konde Boy and Kajala had gone public with their affair and the two got matching tattoos of their name initials; ‘K’ for Harmonize and ‘H’ for Kajala.
Funny thing is that Harmonize and Kajala only dated for 2 months and got the tattoos when they had been together for a few weeks! They famously broke up after news emerged that the “Kwangwaru” singer had hit on Kajala’s 19-year-old daughter, Paula.
Yes, you read that right! The singer got a tattoo of a woman he barely knew after just knowing her for a few weeks! But this isn’t the only time Konde Boy has shown a proclivity for bad tattoos.
In the past, he has also put a tattoo of his ex-wife, Sarah Michelotti and that’s not all. He had also put one of his former mentor, Diamond Platnumz.
Thing is, all these relationships have all ended on a sour note and each time his body shares indelible evidence of the failed relationship.
My suggestion to Konde Boy would be to stop getting tattoos of people that he is in a relationship with. It seems that he has poor personal relationship skills, something that keeps on baring out each passing month with each scandal he gets involved in.
At the end of the day, his poor tattoo choices show a man who lacks any form of impulse control, and is borne out by the manner in which all his public relationships have ended-with him looking like his behaviour caused them.
Even Kenyan comedian Mammito has done a skit making fun of it, and catching the attention of Harmonize who shared the hilarious video on his Instagram feed.
The fashion item also pretty much looks like what Michael Jackson often wore.
It appears that Harmonize may have paid homage to the late King of Pop who loved to embellish his outfits with anything from knives, forks and spoons to diamonds. One such outfit was a jacket with spoons and forks dangling in the front like military medals.
Jackson died in Los Angeles in June 2009 from an overdose of the surgical anaesthetic propofol, which he was taking to help him sleep.
While the song was always going to be a hit from the word go, there were some initial issues and eyebrows raised after the views upon release dropped from 900K to 700K.
In a statement seen by Classic105, Konde Boy asked his fans not to focus so much on YouTube views but instead enjoy the #Attitude Video.
“HELLOW KONDEGANG FC AND EVERBODY WHO SUPPORT MY MUSIC PUUZIA KILA MNACHOKIONA YOUTUBE DONT BLAME ANYONE ENJOY THE MUSIC PERIOD …!!!! #ATTITUDE I S S S A BLESSED SOUND OYAAA..!!! LINK PA BIO ft @awilolongomba & @h.baba_ 🐘” Wrote Harmonize.
The “Attitude” video dropped a total of 200K views (900K-700K) while the “Attitude” audio lost a total of 125K views from 642K to 517K within 24 hours.
The Attitude video had garnered 900K views within 20 hours before dropping. At the moment, the song has passed the 3 million mark.
But what does the man who originally mentored them think? For the past year, Diamond has been remarkably silent and well-behaved, nary being involved in any scandal starting to look a distinguished and experienced older gentleman.
The man has finally weighed in on the current hullabaloo involving former signee Harmonize and Next Level Music CEO Rayvanny.
In an interview, Chibu advised the two to focus on creating good music instead of getting personal with their beef. He said that they should emulate the competitive musical ‘beef’ with Alikiba with whom they have always been pitted against each other at Tanzania’s top dogs.
“Naskia mara sijui wanapelekana Polisi…sio kitu ambacho unaweza sema niliwafunza ama …ukitizama hata kwetu sisi kaka zao wakubwa Mimi na Alikiba hatukuwahi kuskia kuna mambo ya kupelekana polisi ama Mahakamani , tulikuwa tunashinda tu kwenye maswala ya kazi….washindane kujua huyu ana views zake sijui ngapi, huyu naye sijui subscribers ngapi, yaani ivo” said Diamond in part.
Konde Music Worldwide CEO, Harmonize desperately needs an intervention in his personal life. Yep, the musician seems to be in the eye of a storm very often, especially as far as his relationships go.
The man revealed that he had a daughter late last year, a disclosure that shocked not only his fans but also prompted the quick dissolution of his marriage to his Italian babe, Sarah Michelloti who dumped him.
And it seemed that the singer had moved on from Sarah months later, as he was spotted with Bongo actress, Fridah Kajala.
But the man is now crying about his ex, Sarah. Yes, a week after he was exposed for sliding in the DM’s of Paula, the daughter of his ex-GF, Fridah, he seems to have had a change of heart.
