Konde Music Worldwide CEO failed to perform at the NRGWave Mombasa Edition on Sunday. Word has it that Hamonize did not perform at the event because the event organizers failed to honour their MOU Memorandum of Understanding.
According to his Manager Jembe ni Jembe, The event organizers did not pay the remaining balance as earlier agreed making it hard for Harmonize to perform. The event organizers were actually collecting money from fans at the entrance in order to pay him.
Was not paid in full. Am very sorry…The fans wanted Harmonize. They messed. Hawakuwa wamejipanga, they were collecting from the gate to come pay us the balance. Am at the airport tunaondoka to start Tandahimba for show Kesho,” reads a number of message from Jembe ni Jembe.
Artists that performed at the event were Burna Boy, Khaligraph Jones and Nameless. It is said that Burna Boy also had some misunderstandings with the organizers before stepping on stage to entertain his fans.
This is the second time Harmonize fails to perform in Kenya. In 2018 he failed to perform at the Chaget festival due to not being paid in full and the promoter not sticking to the MOU. It is said the promoter of the event showed up saying that he had cash which was not true yet they had agreed that he would pay in USD.
NRG has not said anything yet about this.
