Rajabu Abdul almaarufu Harmonize or Konde Boy Mjeshi, a well-known Bongo Fleva artist, claims that in the year 2022, he will surprise people with what he will do.
Harmonize says he wants to make Bongo Fleva music more accessible to people all over the world, but he’s discovered that language is a barrier, as people don’t understand what they’re singing because English is spoken by the majority of the world’s music listeners.
Konde Boy, speaking to the Friday newspaper during the premiere of his new album High School in Palm Village, Mikocheni, Dar, says that while they have done a lot to promote the Kiswahili language, they need to alter in order to compete in the international market.
“Today, Nigerian musicians appear to be doing well because they sing in a world language and their music is received swiftly; however, we need to perform songs in a foreign language to gain more listeners, and that is exactly what I will do this year (2022),” he says. Konde Boy has stated that he intends to release an album in simple English.
