Tanzanian artiste Harmonize is one of the fastest growing artistes in East Africa at the moment and is becoming a household name in his country.
The talented singer is signed to Diamond Platnumz’s music record label, WCB Wasafi in Dar es Salaam. He rose to fame with his single, Ayiola, which received positive feedback from fans and topped the charts on its debut.
The down to earth and soft spoken singer is also known for his song Bado featuring Diamond Platnumz and his recent track, Matatizo, which has garnered 3.3 Million views on YouTube and still counting.
Well, it looks like Harmonize is keenly following in his bosses footsteps and if he keeps up with the discipline he might end up replacing Diamond Platnumz with time, just saying.
He was among nominees contesting for the Best Newcomer Africa award category in the just concluded African Musik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) 2016, which were held in Dallas Texas on Saturday 15 October.
To the surprise of many, the singer bagged the award, beating the likes of Reekado Banks, Falz and Humblesmith all from Nigeria and Nathi from South Africa.
Harmonize was overjoyed at winning, a milestone he never thought he would attain at such a short time after joining the music industry. The up and coming singer shared a short video of the trophy, with caption that read; “Tanzania Mungu ni mwema siku zote 💪 (Tanzania, God is good all the time)”.
Diamond Platnumz, who took home the award for Best Male Artiste Africa, could not hide his joy after Harmonize won the award and took to social media to congratulate him, revealing how Harmonize would ask him whether he would win an award one day at the AFRIMMA’s.
Diamond shared a picture from last year, where Harmonize had come to receive him after winning three awards, with this touching caption;
I remember last year you came to receive me at the airport when I was coming from @afrimma awards with my trophies…and you asked me “do you think one day I will even be nominated on any international Awards” then I told you “If you work hard, Praying hard, Believe in God, respecting everybody then God will make a way…. and today we are here celebrating Your BEST NEW COMER AFRICA Winning🏆… congrats @harmonize_tz and thanks a lot to our beloved fans and @Afrimma for keep supporting African talents…
