A revered figure in Tanzania’s music industry, Harmonize had an interview with the country’s local radio station, Clouds Fm with one story standing out about a deal he had with his previous record label.
After having rocked under Wasafi Classic Baby music label for several years, the Sina talked of his newfound freedom and pressing the eject button on his record deal.
Konde Boy revealed that he paid Tsh500 million to his previous label in order to be handed the exclusive rights to his music. However, he hasn’t finished paying it up after selling three houses to settle the debt.
He said : “Nilitakiwa kulipa million 500, Kiukweli kule sijaondoka kwa ubaya, tumefuata sheria na taratibu za mkataba! Nilitakiwa kulipa million 500 na baadhi ya gharama, kiukweli sikuwa na pesa lakini nimeuza baadhi ya mali zangu ili nifanikiwe kulipa hiyo pesa na kwa asilimia kubwa nimelipa bado asilimia chache tu ili niweze kutumia kitu chochote kinachomuhusu Harmonize .”
Asked about severing his relationship with his previous labelmates, he said he has cut ties with them but he has no beef with Diamond but the management.
“Sitaki kusema uongo, Mahusiano yangu na uongozi wangu uliopita sio kama zamani, na kuhusu wao kushindwa kuhudhuria ndoa yangu mimi niliweka nadhiri kuwa siku ya ndoa yangu ningependa wahudhuriaji wawe ni ndugu zangu niloishi nao vizuri kijijini .
Jembe ni mtu aliyekuwa akinisupport tangu kitambo, Baada ya kuvunja mkataba na lebo yangu ya nyuma! Jembe akaamua kuanza kunisupport japo watu wengi wamekuwa wakimtafsiri vibaya na kuhisi kwamba yeye ndio chanzo cha kunifanya niondoke kule lakini sio kweli, he added .
He revealed he is happy now that he has left the label since the Clouds FM radio station can now play his music. It is noted that the radio station does not play music associated with the Platnumz owned label.
