Harmonize Seeks Help To Recover Unpaid Royalties From Diamond Platnumz and Other Music managers

Bongo Flava superstar, Harmonize, may be feeling a glimmer of hope after Tanzanian President Samia Suluhu appointed rapper Mwana Fa as the Deputy Minister for Culture, Arts, and Sports. The timing of the appointment couldn’t be more perfect for Harmonize, who has been struggling to collect his royalties for over seven years.

Despite his numerous chart-topping hits in Africa, the music distribution and publishing companies he’s currently working with have failed to pay him a single cent.

In a bold move, Harmonize took to social media to publicly express his excitement about Mwana Fa’s appointment and to ask for his help in recovering the money that rightfully belongs to him. “I need 5 serious royals from Wasafi and Mziiki. They have partnered to play with my life, and I did nothing wrong to them,” he said. “You can’t sit on someone’s money that they’ve been fighting for three years, and you’re not afraid of God’s curse. Mwana Fa, congratulations, and I ask you to start with this issue.”

In addition to his plea for financial justice, the Konde Gang CEO also issued a warning to Diamond Platnumz’s die-hard fans, known as “chawa,” who have been bad-mouthing him on social media. “I respect you, my brothers and sisters, but when you speak on social media, especially when there are issues, you stand against me and convince others that what you see is right for your own benefit,” he said. “Sometimes you insult me and say that I am not a good human being. I am hurt, but I tell God that this is the path that you have chosen for your people to earn their livelihood. My supporters give me their all, but it’s not enough.”

earlier last week, harmonize, In a series of Instagram stories, he revealed that he has not earned a single dime from his music in nearly seven years, despite releasing over 100 hit songs during this period. He owns the master rights to his music but has no idea who has been collecting the money. He expressed his frustration at the disrespect and insults he has received from the industry players responsible for collecting his royalties.
