Bongo News: Harmonize Quits Diamond Platnumz’s Wasafi Records

Fast-rising talented Bongo Flava singer, Rajab Abdul Kahali put an end to his time with Diamond Platnumz’z Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB) records in a controversial way that left many fans with unanswered questions.

Rajab, better known by his stage name Harmonize, allegedly signed a 15 long years stint with Wasafi records as the first Bongo Flava singer signed into the record label.

Harmonize reportedly handed a termination request to the boss and has since missed two consecutive Wasafi Festival Shows.

Many wonder what could make him look down on a label that took him in when he was no one, developed his talent and turned him into a superstar.

Harmonize was born in Mtwara, the capital city of Mtwara Region in Southwestern Tanzania. He discovered his hidden talent at a very tender age and attracted many producers in his country when he was barely ten.

He developed his talent while understudying his role model, Diamond Platnumz before being handed his career debut in 2011. Unfortunately, his first recordings didn’t go as planned.

However, didn’t stop the determined singer from releasing a bombshell in 2015 when he finally met Diamond Platnumz.

His hit song, Aiyola made a resounding success and welcomed the raw talent into the life of a superstar.

He eventually won 3 awards with this single in the same year; AEA Award in the USA, WatsUp TV Award and AFRIMMA Award. 

These are enough to bring the energetic singer with an outstanding command of voice to the attention of international music artists such as Yemi Alade, Mr. Eazi, Dully Sykess, among others.

In April 2018, Harmonize swept the whole of Africa with his hit song, Kwangwaru, featuring Diamond Platnumz.

The reception was unbelievable as the song became the first Bongo Flava hit to attract over 50 million views on YouTube alone.


This took Tanzanians by surprise and in turn, graced his tremendous fame and registered the superstar’s name in the history of the genre. Diamond Platnumz

Even if Harmonize is cutting loose, his ties with WCB records, his history will be incomplete without mentioning the impact of his role model, Diamond Platnumz.

Diamond Platnumz, is known as the father of Bongo Flava in Tanzania. His invaluable contribution to Bongo Flava cannot be overemphasised.

He is considered the most influential and most loved in the East and Central Africa, in fact the whole of Africa and worldwide.

Diamond has won many awards doing the only thing he does best and has served an inspiration to many superstars and upcoming artists in his native country and continent.

His debut album, titled Lala Salama was released in 2012 and had since then consistently exceeds the expectations of Bongo Flava fans.

Today, he has not less than 22 awards in his archive  winning all these distinguished awards from just 28 nominations.


Rumor has it that Harmonize’s reason for turning his back on his 15 years contract with WCB records could be Diamond’s disrespectful song that exposed an alleged relationship between his Italian girlfriend. Sarah Michelotti and Diamond’s former bodyguard, Mwarabu Fighter.

This is unconfirmed though as Sarah already cleared the air, saying she’s faithful to his boyfriend. We are yet to receive an official statement from any of the two of them, but we looks like the two had fallen out. 

We love both of both them and can’t wait to see them reconcile again.

K.Junior pioneers the fusion of Amapiano and Highlife on new single ‘Mansa’

We find ourselves in an era where there is a lot of experimental music coming from the new breed of artists who are young, gifted, and very bold.

Fearless in their pursuit of music, they do not shy away from trying out new things, and thanks to this class, music genres have gotten very spicy and the lines that categorize these genres keep blurring out. Listen/stream

K.Junior takes on this mantle very well. As a Highlife musician, his goal is to take this genre which originated in Ghana in the 19th century to the world.
Joining the likes of Ebo Taylor, Osibisa, and Pat Thomas, he has a master plan to attain this. Simple yet complex, he plans to achieve this feat by fusing Highlife music with more prominent and trending genres. 
For his first attempt, he jumps on Amapiano, a sub-genre of House music that emerged in South Africa in 2016 and is growing into one of the biggest genres making rounds with 80% of its listeners residing outside of South Africa.
K.Junior tackles this very well by seamlessly merging the two genres (Amapiano and Highlife) on his latest single ‘Mansa’ and earning him the title of Pioneer of this fusion of Amapiano and Highlife with excitement to see other artists/producers join in. 
‘Mansa’ starts with a Ghanaian traditional percussion pattern known to Kpanlogo that will get you bopping your head right from the moment you hit play.

More Entertainment News  & Updates

This is followed by a smooth piano melody and consistent synth which are key elements in Amapiano. Then comes the chorus, singing in the style of a Ghanaian traditional choir with all vocals harmonized beautifully. Somewhere along the line comes the jazzy saxophone which will blow you away.
The merger of these two genres is a mission that has been perfectly executed and K.Junior brought his own Ghanaian homegrown flavor to the well-received Amapiano.
By all the standards, the production of this song is top-notch and very well crafted.
The lyrics are easy to grasp and sing along and the rhythm and melody will definitely get you busting some dance moves wherever you find yourself. K.Junior deserves his flowers for the production and performance of this masterpiece.
We know you will enjoy ‘Mansa’ as much as we did and smacking it on replay will be inevitable.

First Jollof Festival in South Africa: Ghana tops, Nigeria Curates, Congo DR hosts — Africa wins

The Ghana-Nigeria Jollof Wars competition 2021 tagged #JollofWarsSouthAfrica was held at Karibu Wote Restaurant in Rivonia, Sandton, a place in South Africa’s largest city of Johannesburg. The Grand Prize winner was Florence Ansah of Ghana, she walked away with 8000 South African rands (R), the equivalent of about 560 US dollars.

Florence, who is based in Sunnyside, Pretoria became the winner of the first-ever Jollof Wars event in South Africa when she beat a field of four other chefs to win the grand-prize.

In her own words, she said “I am grateful for participating in the competition and grateful to God for also being the winner and I thank the Ghana High Commission for allowing me to connect with the organizers.”JollofWarsSouthAfrica competing chefs pictured left to right are Jumoke Ojetimi of Nigeria, Phyllis Qua-enoo of Ghana, the winner Florence Ansah also of Ghana, and Nigeria’s Jemie Ugwujide

Prize money for the chefs was sponsored by MTN South Africa, a mobile telecommunications company, with Afroruby South Africa also sponsoring a gift. Other prize winners included Phyllis Qua Enoo, also a Ghanaian who won the runner-up prize of R6500 ($455.79) with Nigeria’s Jumoke Ojetimi coming in third place to win  R5500 ($385.61).

Side attractions that spiced up the event

Runaway attraction in the mold of a young eighteen-year-old celebrity chef named Jemie Ugwujide whose dish came in fourth despite participating only for the fun of it won many hearts. Another activity that added to the excitement of this premier event was the poem presented by co-organizer Maleshane Makhale about South Africa’s ‘Youth Day‘ which coincidentally fell on the day of the program —

Full marks go to David, of Democratic Republic of the Congo (Congo DR) who sang his country’s national anthem with gusto and warmth, what made it peculiar was the fact that this was the only anthem sung in French.The South Africans in the room also harmonized their anthem which has multiple languages with great aplomb.

The shortest anthem at the #JollofWarsSouthAfrica was the Nigerian anthem with its first stanza that ends with the words ‘peace and unity‘ bellowed out loud by Nigerians in the hall of the event venue Karibu Wote, which by the way is owned by a Congo DR national.For a second there, one could have mistaken this for a choral contest given all the singing that set the tone to electrify the venue.

The event was graced by the presence of Madam Hilda Hinidza-Elluh, the Acting High Commissioner of Ghana to South Africa who was accompanied by the High Commission’s Trade Assistant Elizabeth Anku.2nd left is Elizabeth Anku — trade assistant from Trade Section of the Ghana High Commission in South Africa, 3rd left is Ambassador Hilda Hinidza-Ellun — Acting Ghana High Commissioner to South Africa, 2nd right is Phyllis Qua- Enoo — 1st runner-up, and extreme right is Adetunji Omotola — Co-Founder of African Solutions Express and #JollofWarsSouthAfrica Curator

By home advantage, most of the guests were South Africans, yet a chunk of the attendees was also from the Congo DR. Nigerians and Ghanaians present were also resplendent in their traditional attires, adding color and fashion with the colors of their dresses and shoes blending in with the multi-lingual conversations and well-garnished mouth-watering Jollof and other food items. African diversity was on full blast and well-displayed that day…

The winner is picked, the battle is ended, but the culinary war continues

Congo DR Chef Demolu and Palesa Ryan, a South African banker, were the two judges at hand for the event. As the chefs presented their dishes for judging the event went ahead with the exhibition of books, wines, and beers.

The judges spent quite some time before establishing the best dish as the competition was quite stiff, making it hard for them to quickly conclude on which of the Jollof tasted better since they were all good.Besides Jollof rice, there was lunch also, which was provided by Karibu Wote.

Lunch came in the form of pondu, tilapia and pap, other options were potatoes, rice and chicken with accompaniments. The various dishes were washed down by wines from Naked Bottles and some beers from the Tolokazi Range being exhibited as guests bought wines and beers that they had tasted earlier during the exhibition and networking session.A well-garnished and well-presented Jollof by competing Nigeria chef Jumoke Ojetimi (inset bottom right corner) at the first ever Jollof Festival in South Africa

In the end, Ghana came in best with Sunnyside-based Pretoria resident Florence Ansah making history in South Africa as the winner.

The dishes were great, the atmosphere was euphoric and the attendance no doubt was encouraging for a first-time event,” said Adetunji Omotola, the event Curator who went ahead to reveal to TheAfricanDream.net (event media partner) in a post-event interview that “planning is already afoot for the 2nd event.

We are so thankful to everyone who played respective roles in making this success a reality. Contact us on Twitter and Instagram where we can be found as @jollofwars_sa to talk about how you can be a part of the next event.“Highlights from The Jollof Wars South Africa will be aired across Africa on Saturday,
