Tanzanian singer Harmonize is set to perform at Volume 1 in Mombasa at 11:00 pm today alongside other artistes.
After Harmonize was arrested and momentarily detained at the Kileleshwa police station, the former Nairobi Governor, Mike Sonko paid him a visit and revealed that he had not been arrested and that it was all a misunderstanding.
Sonko said Harmonize will still perform in Mombasa as it was planned and the whole situation with Eric Omondi was just petty. Sonko said;
“Tulimuita akuje a perform. Hii ingine ilikua communication breakdown. It is just a petty issue. He is a free man. Atawatumbuiza watu wa mombasa pamoja na wasanii wengine.”
When asked whether the claims against Harmonize were true, Sonko said that his management was in a better position to talk about that. He however said that Harmonize hadn’t signed any contract.
“They haven’t signed a contract. I am not a complainer. It is just a communication breakdown. He was summoned here after someone complained. The performance is still on.”
“We had already advertised. In Mombasa, he will perform from 11:00 pm alongside other artistes. Sidhani kwamba kuna vita ambayo imekua. Which Eric by the way? It was a small misunderstanding. These things happen in life,” Sonko said.
Apart from the issue with Harmonize, Sonko talked about his race for being Mombasa Governor come August. He said that he will implement the things that made Nairobi better in Mombasa. The former Governor claimed that the leadership in Mombasa has been poor in the last 10 years. He said;
“Mombasa kumekua na uongozi mbaya for 10 years. As we are speaking kuna water shortage. I have done some research and nitawasaidia. We are trying to purify maji ya bahari iwe purified.
“Once nimechukua office mambo ya water shortage will be a thing of the past. Jobelessness pia. The same way we did in Nairobi, tutashirikiana na polisi tupeleke vijana kwa rehabilitation cenetrs na tuwapatie kazi. I’ll also upgrade the hosptals.”
Apart from Sonko’s club, Volume 1, Harmonize was supposed to perform at Captains Lounge and Cocorico clubs in Nairobi.
