Harmonize on the spot after ‘flopped’ US performance

Tanzanian singer, Rajab Abdul Kahali, popularly known as Harmonize, is facing backlash from his fans after his recent performance in Indianapolis, USA.

The concert, which cost fans $100 (about Sh13,000) per ticket, reportedly lasted for only 20 minutes, leaving many feeling shortchanged.

Harmonize is currently on a tour of the United States and is scheduled to perform in Seattle on May 13th, London on May 20th, Dallas Texas on May 26th, and Boise on May 27th. He is also set to perform in Australia in June.

Videos of Harmonize’s Indianapolis concert have been circulating on social media, with many criticizing the low turnout. Despite the lack of an audience, Harmonize appeared to give his all on stage, delivering an energetic performance to those in attendance.

However, some of his fans were not pleased with the concert, taking to social media to express their disappointment. One fan tweeted, “I can’t believe I paid $100 for a 20-minute concert. Harmonize really let me down.”

This is not the first time a Tanzanian artist has faced criticism for a low turnout at a US concert. Last year, Diamond’s signee Zuchu also had a similar experience, prompting her to admit to crying over the show.

“Ila Namshukuru kila Aliejitokeza Kwa ajili yangu (I thank everyone that came out to see me) I love y’all,” she said. Despite the disappointment of the underwhelming show, the artist expressed gratitude to those who showed up to support her.

“As I’m crying and sobbing right now ila Hii leo Imenipa Hasira ya kufanya zaidi,” she continued, explaining that the experience had given her the strength to do more.

In a message to her fans, she shared words of encouragement, reminding them that failure is a part of the journey to success. “Kina Simba wanawezajae Yarrabi well in their stories kuna A lot of failures Ndo pengine zinawafikish Walipo. I ACCEPT FAILING AS A PART OF MY SUCCESS,” she said.
