Diamond finally addresses Harmonize and Rayvanny’s ‘colonial’ contracts

Diamond Platnumz has responded to rumours that he asks for too much money when one of his signees wants to leave the label, hence beef with Harmonize and Rich Mavoko.

Since their departure from the label, the two former signees don’t see eye to eye with Diamond. Rayvanny recently left the label as fans speculated that he left on good terms.

In a recent interview with DW, Diamond said it is business and that he also needs to make a profit as he invested in them.

“When we take in these artists, we make them a business. We teach them different things and when they become big, they want to have the money for themselves yet we invested in them as a business. You can’t just leave the label just like that. It is business. If not, I would have taken the money and gone to buy maize.”

After I had just dropped my first hit and people could recognise my music, I got a feeling that I had to empower more youth and that is why I started the Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) record label,” he said.

Asked whether his contracts are colonial, he said;

“There’s nothing like that. We at Wasafi are leading in money. If the contracts are colonial then why do we make the money? When big money comes their way, they want to eat alone. Myself, I don’t eat the money I make by myself, it is shared among other people, it is business.”

Diamond went on to say that the artistes that have been under his wings are superheroes.

“I have introduced many artistes but I have not just introduced artistes but superheroes. So now they are role models to other youths and that is what I want to do. I want to use my platform to empower more so they can also empower other people. As Africans we need to empower others.”

“We have to be very professional. If you see someone unleashing bedroom affairs out at the dining table, they are not well taught,” he said.

“I have been in the industry for many years and when I speak, I speak that which I know and understand, but we are transforming from music to business.”

Diamond is currently in France for a show.

REVEALED: Why Kajala is madly in love with Harmonize

Tanzanian actress Frida Kajala has for the first time revealed why she is deeply in love with her fiance, Harmonize.
Kajala shared a photo of her and Harmonize from the day she was engaged to the Konde Gang CEO with a caption stating why she loves him.


She wrote, “I love him because the entire world is against us.”

Touched by her sweet words, Harmonize wrote,  “As long as God is with us that’s all that matters.”

While many loved the captioned and wished them long life of love in their relationship, many found the caption a little dramatic.

Some were quick to remind her that the entire world doesn’t know about them and that only Tanzanians would be against their relationship.
Check out some of their reactions,

Bwise TZ:  Sio entire world useme Tanzania tu

Mommy:  Naona hubbaa la kutoka moyoni

Emma Blessed:  Ikawe heri na mema kwenu @kajalafrida na brother @harmonize_tz

Mlela:  Tunawapenda

Mabati:  Kaaaaay wa Rajab

Mgodini:  Time Will tell

Harmonize proposed to Harmonize back in June during an luncheon courtesy of the two lovebirds which took place at Serena hotel in Dar es Salaam.

The ‘Happy birthday’ singer was rocking an all white suit and went down on one knee taking Kajala by surprise.

Kajala promised to love her now fiance ‘today, tomorrow and forever.’ 

“Rajabu… Nitakupenda Leo, Kesho, Hadi Milele(I will love you, today, tomorrow and forever,” Kajala said.

Speculations are rife on what this will mean to them since Kajala is a Christian and Harmonize is a staunch Muslim, but like they say love knows no boundary.

Kajala’s beautiful daughter, Paula was among those present to witness her mom’s special day and she wore a beautiful blue gown which complimented her mom’s blue and orange dress.

The engagement came as a surprise to many given that the two just got back together less than a month ago following a nasty breakup.

Since Kajala came back into Harmonize’s life, he has been making headlines for the number and type of gifts he has been showering Kajala with.

A while ago, Kajala flaunted a number of gifts Harmonize had endowed her with.

The mother of on shared a short video of the gifts Harmonize bought her which she captioned, ‘Thank you, baby, with a love heart emoji’

They included expensive chocolates, designer sunglasses, perfume, a cap, and a Burberry bag which retails for around Ksh 100,000 in online stores.

When Harmonize was working hard in trying to woo his heartthrob back by buying her the two Range Rovers, a very humble Harmonize opened up on how she changed his life revealing that she once housed him for months, something that the public had no clue about.

 “I miss you so please come back and let us pick up from where we left . Don’t be worried by people who’ll say that you took me back because of these gifts. Nobody knows I have lived in your house for months and nobody knows that you have supported me so much and I didn’t even buy you a bicycle,” he said.

Fake love: Harmonize did not buy Kajala a Mercedes

Tanzanian musician Harmonize lied to the online fans that he had acquired expensive Mercedes cars for his now fiance Fridah Kajala.

Harmonize has been showing off a fleet of Range Rovers he acquired for Fridah Kajala, to woo her back in May this year.

A businessman-car dealership owner who spoke to an actor/comedian known as Mr Pimbi said the three Range Rovers- 2 white ones and a black one were borrowed.

The man named Athman said Harmonize was given the Range Rovers to advertise them but has misused them instead.

Mr. Pimbi added that Harmonize only owns a Toyota V8.

“Those cars are not his. It’s not a secret to insiders, we know, only you guys are fooled,” he said.

“He was given the cars to impress that woman – Kajala. He was made to sign a deal. that said I want you to promote those Range Rovers.

Harmonize had told his fans that he chose that Range Rover model since it is Kajala’s dream car. He added that he bought the car as a way to apologise to his ex but not to bribe her.

“Even if it was Kajala 1 to 10, it cannot rub off the hurt I caused you and your family,” he wrote.

“It cannot be a reason enough for you to get back to me. This only goes to show how remorseful I am. All I am asking is for forgiveness from you.”

It is also alleged that he and Kajala started living together early this year, contrary to what the two have been sharing online.

Maina Kageni defends Harmonize’s poor English, says parents speak Portuguese

For years Tanzanian star Harmonize has been trolled over the fact that he cannot speak fluent English.

During the Morning Conversation, Maina Kageni finally revealed why.

Maina says Harmonize’s parents are very close to the border of Mozambique thus they speak Portuguese.

“Harmonize parents speak very fluent Portuguese.

They are close to the Mozambique border, It’s interesting to listen to them speak.” Maina shared

According to Wikipedia Mozambique and Tanzania have had cordial relations since Mozambique got its independence from Portugal. 

After independence, civil war broke out between the ruling party, the Front for Liberation of Mozambique(FRELIMO), and the Mozambique Resistance Movement (RENAMO), which were backed by Rhodesia and South Africa. 

Portuguese is the most popular language among Mozambiqueans.

Harmonize hails from Mtwara which is closest to Mozambique.

In a past interview Harmonize stated that as long as people understand him, he doesn’t care whether his English is fluent or not.

 “I am not a professional when it comes to the English language but when someone speaks I understand them. 

English is not our first language, the most important thing is believing in yourself.”

Adding,

” I come from the ghetto, I dropped out of school in class 7, and I have not been to any English course.

According to him, his girlfriend has helped him perfect and master his English more than his ex-Italian girlfriend who also struggled with the language.

My girlfriend Briana has been helping me a lot unlike Sarah because her English was also not good)” he said.

Harmonize not giving up on getting ex-lover Kajala back

Bongo superstar Harmonize has proved to his fans that he is yet to give up on ever getting his ex-lover Kajala back.

A few days ago, Kajala reacted to constant calls by her ex-boyfriend Harmonize to rekindle their lost love.

This is after Harmonize has bought expensive gifts to try and lure her to come back.

In a series of posts, Kajala talked about how people who exited your life will always try to come back to test you or even mess up your life more.

Her sentiments were interpreted by her fans as a direct jibe at her ex-lover Harmonize.

In one post, she advised the importance of people knowing their worth.

“Don’t be someone’s sometimes. First, know your worth, second control your emotions. Third Never settle,” she wrote.

“Don’t get attached remember what happened last time…You can’t change everyone. just move on… Don’t let anybody play with you, even if you love them.

“It’s very easy to find A new one. But it’s hard to find A True one.”

Harmonize first put up a huge billboard with their photos. He spent almost Sh500k on the billboard although Kajala ignored him.

He then shared a long public apology to Kajala and her daughter Paula Kajala adding that he has been lonely and even not being able to eat.

Harmonize later bought an expensive chain for the actress and two Range Rovers fully customized with her name in vain.

Well, recently, Harmonize shared a video of himself standing next to Range Rovers with Kajala’s name as the number plate.

In the video, he apologized and begged Kajala to come back.

“Do not be afraid that people will say you came back to me because of all these material things I have bought you all the cars. No one knows us and our relationship, no one knows how we used to live together and all the support that you have shown me, and I did not even buy you a bicycle. You housed me for months.”

Harmonize wanted to see if I was still stupid-Kajala

Fridah Kajala Masanja is an ex-girlfriend to Harmonize. The singer has been begging her relentlessly to take him back but his plea has landed on deaf ears.

The Tanzanian singer even went as far as to put up a billboard written ‘Lovers’ to beg Kajala for forgiveness. But it seems Kajala has been throwing shade at the singer.

In a recent post, she hinted that Harmonize is back to see whether she’s still stupid.

“Sometimes people come back into your life just to check if you are still stupid.”

In another post, she warned people about getting attached.

“Don’t get attached remember what happened last time…..”

She also asked fans to know their worth, control their emotions and never settle.

“Don’t be someone’s ‘sometimes’ …Don’t let nobody play with you, even if you love them…”

Harmonize broke up with Kajalla after being accused of seducing Kajala’s 19-year-old daughter Paula. 

Before Kajala, Harmonize was married to an Italian woman, Sarah Michelotti.

In a past interview, Sarah said she split with the singer over his alleged infidelity. It is not yet clear if the two officially divorced as they have kept quiet over the issue since then.

He later dated Australian woman Briana but split as the singer could not handle long distance relationships.

The Italian girlfriend later shared what seemed to be a breakup message where she said that because of the disrespect, she will be focusing on her life alone.

“I loved you for the person I thought you were, I gave you all the happiness which you failed to reciprocate. You’ve revealed to me you are a man with no respect, a liar, someone who doesn’t know how to keep a wife like me,” she wrote.

“I’ve been through a lot in this fake relationship/marriage. If I reveal everything, everyone will be shocked. You are two-faced. You didn’t even appreciate what I did for you and now it is too late. Life will teach you the lessons you deserve for what you’ve done and now I will be focusing on my life.

She is still in the healing process and in a recent post she wrote;

‘When someone lies to you, it’s because they don’t respect you enough to be honest , and they think you are too stupid not to know the difference..,WE LEARN , WE HEAL , WE GROW.’
