Manager ditches ‘arrogant’ bongo star Harmonize
One of Tanzania’s top talent managers Joel Vincent Joseph, popularly known as Mr Puaz, has parted ways with WCB Wasafi after falling out with his client Harmonize.
Tanzanian media report that Mr Puaz parted ways with Harmonize after failing to agree on new contract terms, with claims that the manager feels exploited after engineering the musician’s rise of fortune.
However speaking to Nairobi News, Mr Puaz clarified that he could no longer work with Harmonize due to his ‘bad attitude and arrogance’ that developed after his recent success.
“Hapana sio suala la hela, sema tumeshindwa kuelewana kikazi kutokana na ujeuri na kiburi alichonacho Harmonize. Hivyo nikaona bora tuachane kwa amani kila mtu afanye yake,” Mr Puaz told Nairobi News.
Mr Puaz was conspicuously missing during the Wasafi Festival held last Monday at Uhuru Gardens, Nairobi.
Harmonize angered fans at the concert when called Kenyans poor and went on to disrespectfully throw the Kenyan flag to the ground.
Previously, Mr Puaz managed Tanzanian rapper Shetta before decamping to Wasafi where he facilitated the signing up of Harmonize as the label first artiste.
