Tanzanian Bongo star Harmonize has found himself in trouble with the government over his new song Weed language featuring Jamaican Dancehall Artist Konshens.
The singer was summoned by the Commissioner General of the Drug Control and Enforcement Unit, Gerald Kusaya and Baraza La Sanaa la Taifa over the song which has violated Tanzanian ethics and traditions.
DCEA Chief Commissioner Gerald Kusaya warned that strict measures will be taken against musicians who compose songs promoting the use of drugs.
Posting on his social media, the singer said he is sorry for releasing the song which is against the morals of Tanzania.
Harmonize also said that they have decided to remove the song from all music platforms and will strive to release songs that are compatible with Tanzanian traditions.
“Kutokana na kadhia iliyosababishwa na maudhui ya wimbo huo tunaomba radhi na tunaahidi kuuondoa wimbo huo kwenye mitandaoyote ya kijamii. Pia tunaahidi kuboresha nyimbo zetu ili ziendane na utamaduni wetu pamoja na miongozo ya mamlaka ya serikali.”
Before releasing the song, the singer had claimed that it was his greatest project so far.
