It seems that singer Rajab Abdul Kahali aka Harmonize has a hard time keeping his mentor’s name off his lips. His mentor for those in the know is Diamond Platnumz.
The latest salvo in their lukewarm relationship is the “Uno” singer calling out Diamond for neglecting his biological father.
This happened while he was performing his latest release #Wapo in Zanzibar during the climax of the Mapinduzi Cup, Konde Boy accused Chibu Dangote of only taking care of his mother while ignoring his Dad.
“…Baba na Mama ndio nguzo ya Dunia, watunze!! Sio Baba Dangote Analia, naye Mama Dangote Anacheka Cheka, oooh, kuna watu na vitu duniani,” sings Harmonize during the performance.
This is not the first time Harmonize is throwing shade at his former Boss. In November 2020, via his song “Ushamba” Konde Boy insinuated that the WCB President has a tendency of bragging about women he has slept with, an act he termed as being primitive.
The interesting thing about this latest diss is that it comes a few weeks after he dedicated a wonderful new year’s message to Diamond.
Harmonize said that everything he has down was to make him proud. He also thanked him for changing his life.
“Speaking this from the bottom of my heart, I love you bro. It’s a new year 2021. Thank you for changing my life. Peke uliona dhahabu kwenye mchanga na giza jingi sanaa.
You’re the legend one. Stay cool. Konde Boy and all Kondegang team, we love you. Happy New one Chibu (Dangote), big brother.” the post read.
What is going on in Harmonize’s coconut? I have two theories.
Firstly, I think that Harmonize wants Diamond to recognise him and his talents. Hear me out. A back and forth between him and Diamond shows that his opinion/music matters and as such is a recognition from his mentor of his talent and his place in the industry.
This one is all about ego for Konde Boy-Sort of the way an unfulfilled child will always seek validation from a parent.
Secondly, anyone who disses Diamond in the Bongo scene gets a lot of clout and press as it is a sure-fire way for your song to get the publicity it needs.
Thirdly, maybe Harmonize is just an impulsive and emotional person who can’t maintain a linear course on a decision he had made. His quick turnaround from praising Diamond in his New Year’s message to now attacking him because of the relationship Chibu has for me is highly illogical.
Lastly, jealousy. That one’s self-explanatory.
But I could be wrong…
