Singer-turned-politician Charles Njagua alias Jaguar wasn’t impressed with Tanzanian singer Harmonize’s move last weekend whereby he failed to take to the stage in Eldoret overpayment.
According to Jaguar, Harmonize should have first performed then followed up with the promoter later instead of refusing to perform despite getting a hefty down payment.
“Kama mimi ningekuwa Harmonize Saturday ningeenda kwa stage niambie watu samahani nimechelewa lakini kwa sababu mumenifikisha mahali nimefika saa hii mimi nitaperform lakini promoter hajanilipa…vitu zingine nitadeal nazo baadaye sababu bila nyinyi nisingekuwa Harmonize pale niko.
Unapata kuna fans wametoka mbali hadi Eldoret kwa sababu yake. Sometimes unafaa kuanglia mafans Kwanza,” he told Willy M Tuva.
The celebrated artiste failed to entertain at least 5000 revellers who had been anticipating to see him at the ‘Chaget Festival’ held at the Eldoret Sports Club grounds.
Fans went on a rampage afterwards leading to the arrest of the promoter.
Harmonize was also detained in his hotel for several hours over an unpaid hotel bill.
Jaguar insisted all this could have been avoided if he performed. He added that Kenyans support Tanzanians very much and Harmonize should have returned the favour.
“Ni tukio la kuhuzunisha lakini mimi namshtumu sana Harmonize…wakenya wamemsupport sana, wamesupport wasanii wa nje sana. Wengine wanatumia pesa zao kupiga simu, kurequest nyimbo zao. Mimi mwenyewe siwezi nikakosa kupanda stage sababu ya balance ambayo promoter amebakisha na ni kitu nilikuwa nafanya. Kwanza nadeal na mafans wangu,” he said.
