Harmonize is one of us- Diamond’s sister Esma says

Esma Khan, sister to Bongo singer Diamond Platnumz, has said there is no bad blood between her brother and Harmonize. Speaking in an interview, Esma accused fans of forcing the two into a nonexistent industry-based beef.

According to her, the two share a very cordial friendship. She went on to add that Harmonize is like Diamond’s child insinuating that a father can never be jealous of his son.

“You are the ones who force the beef. Not them, in fact, they are very much okay,” she said.

Esma went on to add that the entire Wasafi family longs to see Harmonize prosper in his musical career as he is still part of the larger family.

“We long to see Harmonize prosper because he is one of us. We are very happy when we witness his success in the industry. Nothing hurts us because he is one of us. Diamond can’t compete with his son,” she added.

Esma’s sentiments come barely a week after Harmonize won three awards in the recently completed Tanzanian Music Awards. However, Harmonize surprised his fans when he dedicated one of his awards to Diamond.

“This means a lot to me. This goes to my brothers and sisters who haven't received an award," he said, adding, “This one is for you, Diamond. It wouldn't sound good if I took an award home, yet Diamond doesn't have one.”

It will be remembered that last year, Harmonize opened up about what forced him to leave Diamond-owned record label Wasafi Classic Baby (WCB). According to the singer, Diamond created a hostile working environment that forced him to exit.

“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,” Harmonize said.

In an emotional interview, the Uno hitmaker went on to accuse Diamond of paying people to tarnish his name through fake stories that painted him on the wrong.
