Tanzanian music star, Harmonize arrested in Kenya
Popular Tanzanian singer Harmonize has been arrested in Kenya and is currently being held at Kileleshwa Police Station.
The singer is said to be enmeshed in a performance row with Melamani Limited who are reportedly not satisfied with his performance in the country.
The show promoters who reported him to the police, accused him of skipping a number of shows despite being paid.
Harmonize was reportedly scheduled to perform at Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC), Captains Lounge, Volume 001, and Cocorico Club among others on Saturday April 30.
At Captains Lounge, he was reportedly scheduled to perform for one and half hours but instead allegedly performed for five minutes, a development that didn’t sit well with the promoter. He also reportedly did same thing at Cocorico club despite being paid.
Cocorico’s director Joe Barsil also confirmed that he paid Harmonize’s promoter for him to show up. Barsil told K24TV;
“I paid Ksh.450,000 to Melamani Limited for Harmonize to come to the club for a party and to be with the fans for one and a half hours, but when he came he only stayed for not more than five minutes.”
Harmonize’s bodyguards are reportedly claiming that Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi took all the money and that the clubs are unfairly blaming Harmonize.
Eric Omondi and Harmonize are currently at the station, with the bodyguards trying to intervene.
