Despite having a disastrous encounter in Eldoret several few weeks ago, Tanzanian singer Harmonize is still willing to work with Kenyan promoters.
“Kenya is one of the countries where I enjoy a large fan base. I, therefore, can’t say I will stop performing in the country,” the singer told BBC Swahili in an interview.
“I will only perform in Kenya if the promoters are ready to work, and are ready to bring me on board. Kenya is one of the countries where I enjoy a large fanbase. I, therefore, can’t say I will stop performing in the country.”
On November 3, the singer angered Eldoret fans after failing to take stage due to a squabble with the promoter of the show.
Fans ended up protesting and damaging property in the venue demanding a refund.
The promoter was later arrested and Harmonize had to solicit money from friends and family to clear his hotel bill and pay for flight back home.
Harmonize, who has another show lined up in December, said that promoters need to adhere to the contract if they want to work with him.
“I, however, say it depends on how the promoters will approach our agreement,” he said.
“Away from that. I’ll headline a show in Mombasa penciled in for December. I want to continue working with the Kenyan people.”
