Singer Rajab Abdul Kahali, popularly known by his stage name Harmonize, will now take the lead in championing a cleaner Dar es Salaam city.
This comes after the Tanzanian artiste was appointed the campaign ambassador, thanks to his growing popularity among the youth.
The campaign dubbed ‘Safisha Pendezesha Dar es salaam’ is an initiative launched by Dar Es Salaam Regional Commissioner Amos Makalla, who ordered immediate rehabilitation of all dilapidated state and private buildings in the city.
Speaking shortly after the campaign launch, Harmonize promised to support the initiative fully and actively play his role in ensuring that others also take up responsibilities for maintaining a clean environment.
“Ningependa kuwahimiza vijana kwamba usafi ni suala letu la msingi, na najivunia kuwa kati ya vijana wanaohimiza usafi kwani ni haki yetu ya msingi,” he said.
His new role comes barely a week after he revealed what forced him to leave Diamond-owned record label, Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB). In a candid interview, Harmonize accused Diamond of picking a fights with him.
“I met with Diamond at a hotel and I asked him why we were being incited by other parties to fight. He dared me to compete with him, saying that I can never beat him, be it musically, financially, through the justice system and even witchcraft. I was shocked, and he got in his car and left,” he said.
He said efforts to iron out things with Diamond were not fruitful as he faced challenges when he approached Diamond’s mother to intervene.
“All I wanted was peace. So, I followed Mama Dangote and told her Diamond and I were like brothers, and we had come from far and helped each other in many ways.
I just wanted to make him ?proud that he helped make me succeed. While I was confiding in her, she was scheming on me. Her mentality was that my aim was to be bigger than her son,” said Harmonize.

It’s All A Lie: Huddah Takes A Shot At Davido Donation Claim
Popular Kenyan Socialite Huddah Monroe has taken a swipe at Nigerian rockstar, Davido after the latter announced he will donate over N250million to orphanages across Nigeria.
Huddah Monroe has criticised the recent donations declared by Nigerian singer Davido.
She took to social media to say that some celebrities do these things for clout.
According to the socialite, she said some of the donations reported by celebrities are lies orchestrated to push their brand visibility.
Sharing a screenshot of Davido’s recent donation, the founder and CEO of Huddah Cosmetics claimed it was a lie, saying that Davido does not intend to donate the money he collected during his birthday drive.
“Big cap but okay,” Huddah wrote.
Huddah said evidence must be produced after celebrities donate large amounts of cash, otherwise, it could easily be dismissed as a PR stunt.
“We are yet to see the saved children or schools built, or shelters, maybe there is. I just haven’t heard coz $14 million is not small change,” she added.
Justifying her claims, Huddah admitted that folks lie but challenged celebrities to a minimum of do the bare minimum, then shout about it rather than promising to try and do it and so vanish through nullity.
“Donations are a way to just lie. We all lie but just do the bare minimum, show us then talk,” Huddah wrote.
Her bold statement around donations came when Davido revealed that he had donated the cash given by his fans to orphanages in Nigeria.
Through social media, the award-winning singer revealed that he had raised over NGN 250 million (Sh68 million) through the drive that lasted just over two days.
He said he is passionate about giving back to society, and that he received Sh54 million from friends. Davido pledged to top it up with around Sh14 million and selected a team to oversee the distribution of the funds.
“The committee will compile a list of orphanages across Nigeria. They will determine the number of children and their needs at each orphanage and then divide the funds accordingly.
To maintain transparency, the committee will make public names of the beneficiary orphanages and how much each will receive,” wrote Davido.
