Tanzanian singer Rajab Abdul Kahali, aka Harmonize, arrested in Nairobi for allegedly obtaining money by false pretense
The Bongo Flava is reportedly being held at Kileleshwa police station, a day after headlining the Afrika Moja Concert at the KICC.
Harmonize, who was supposed to leave the country on Sunday, was arrested after he reportedly failed to honour several appearances at various Nairobi clubs.
Kenyan comedian Eric Omondi has also been implicated in the brewing scandal, with claims that he collected money from bar owners in exchange for the star’s appearance at the bars.
Citizen Digital reported that a former Nairobi Governor cum club proprietor had already paid hundreds of thousands for the Tanzanian sensation to perform at one of his establishments.
Harmonize was detained at the Kileleshwa police station, for questioning over complaints from the show.
Police said they were investigating claims of obtaining money by false pretense. Several of his fans thronged the station when news of his arrest came out.
Kilimani police boss Mbogo Muturi said his officers were acting on complaints from some of the artist’s handlers.
