Why Harmonize left Wasafi Media
Not too long ago, Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) records announced its biggest festival in Tanzania. While at the same time, it released the names of its performing artists. And that’s when netizens realized Harmonize, one of WCB’s leading artists was missing.
Rumors on social media had it that Harmonize was ‘left out’ of the festival because he and his boss, Diamond Platnumz had fallen out. The WCB boss has however refuted the claims, stating that everything is fine between them.
“The advantage or blessing of WCB is that we are overly booked. For example, I’m going back on Monday. Tuesday I have a show in Uganda, Saturday I have a show in Mwanza, Sunday I have a show in Burundi. So, we have different shows, and getting us together is difficult, Diamond said.

Diamond further explained they are at no liberty as an organization to cancel any of the artists booked shows just so they can attend the Festival.
“The Festival is for everyone not only for WCB. You can find we were booked even months prior so it means we will not be there sometimes. We cannot cancel anyone’s show unless they themselves cancel them.
“For example in Mwanza, Mbosso will not be there, Rayvanny will also not be there. In other regions even I won’t be available so….” He concluded. But, was everything as it seemed? Well, you’re among the witnesses of what transpired next. The formation of Konde Music Worldwide (aka “Konde Gang”).
