Singer Harmonize forced to explain why he called Kenyans peasants 

As Kenyans continue to support Tanzanian artists and ignoring their own, it seems Tanzanian artists have a different views of their fans in Kenya.

Singer Harmonize, one of the most supported artists from Tanzania, was recently forced to explain his words after he ended up calling Kenyans peasants.

A quick history of Kenyans and the word peasants; Nigerian singer Burna Boy referred to Kenyans as the same a thing that angered many who demanded an apology.

He never apologized and Kenyans vowed not to attended his performance. But, that didn’t happen. Kenyans flocked his shows like nothing had happened.

Misunderstanding

Harmonize on the other hand, gave a rather eyebrow-raising explanation on why he called Kenyans peasants. He claimed it was a misunderstanding though in Tanzania, the word is usually used.

“You know Kenyan and Tanzanian Swahili is different. When I said Kenyans were peasants I did not mean it like that. You know in Tanzania we consider ourselves part of our fans so when I tell you that you are my fellow peasant I think you can be able to understand but Kenyan language is different. There are some phrases which might be interpreted differently,” said Harmonize

    In TZ 255 if one asked you ” unashida Nate”? It loosely translate to do you have an issue to discuss. Interesting in KE 254, it strictly means you have a problem with someone.

  2. Wakenya hawakumuelewa basically harmonise used a humble language ‘maskini wenzangu’

    i blame the media who often air TZ music more than Kenyan..it’s sad because we dont need to beg anything from TZ as the world is big enough with good music.

      We should not force him to apologize just let him be ..the only thing we need to do is to boycott his music and start embracing Kenyan music,muacha mila ni mtumwa.
