Konde Gang’s frontman, Harmonize, is not just making waves in the music industry; he’s on track to potentially become the next King of Bongo Flavor. But did you know that this rising star once dreamt of a completely different path?
In a recent tell-all interview with Clouds FM, Harmonize unveiled a surprising revelation: he initially aspired to be a soccer star. “Music wasn’t my first choice. I dreamt of being on the football field. But music chose me,” he shared. This unexpected twist in his journey has fans and critics alike wondering: Is Harmonize destined to wear the crown of Bongo Flavor?
Since his debut in 2015, Harmonize’s meteoric rise in the music world has been undeniable. Mentored by the renowned Diamond Platnumz, he quickly established himself as a force to be reckoned with in East Africa. His songs, which he describes as “a reflection of my life,” resonate deeply with fans, making him a household name.
However, the road to success wasn’t without its bumps. Three years into his collaboration with Diamond’s Wasafi label, Harmonize made the bold decision to branch out on his own, launching Konde Music Worldwide. This move not only showcased his entrepreneurial spirit but also gave him the freedom to steer his musical journey in the direction he envisioned.
Delving deeper into his time with Wasafi, Harmonize highlighted some of the challenges he faced. “In my 10-year contract with WCB, they took a 60% cut of my earnings,”he revealed, shedding light on the financial dynamics that often go unnoticed behind the scenes.
But it wasn’t just about money. As Harmonize’s star began to shine brighter, tensions arose. “Friction began when I started gaining traction. Diamond’s manager portrayed it as if I was trying to overshadow him (Diamond),” he commented. This friction eventually led to a strained relationship between the two music giants.
Today, as Harmonize continues to make headlines and churn out hits, the question on everyone’s mind is clear: With his unique blend of talent, determination, and business acumen, is he poised to be the next King of Bongo Flavor?
Only time will tell, but one thing is certain: Harmonize’s journey from the soccer field to the music stage is a testament to his versatility and passion. And as he continues to break barriers and set new standards, the throne of Bongo Flavor might just be within his reach.
