Celebrated Tanzanian singer Rajab Abdul Kahali alias Harmonize is set to release a new music soon.
If you are his follower on his Instagram account, then you surely must have seen how the Konde Music Worldwide CEO is currently working hard to shoot the video of the song.
Harmonize is infact shooting the video in the USA, and he has infact been giving his fans some sneak peek of how it will look like.
For starters the video is being shot in Miami, Florida. According to videos that he shared online in the past few hours or so, the song will have a boxing match scene.
Even though Harmonize is yet to disclose more details like the name of the song, he revealed that the video has indeed costed him an arm and a leg to shoot.
If you are still wondering how much money it costed, then wonder no more because it costed him over $150k which translates to Kshs 20,602,500 and more as per he current rates.
Konde Boy even admitted in a caption that this is the first time that he has spent that much money in shooting a video of a song.
“My first time investing over 150k Usd into a music video ✌️❤️🔥🎼” He wrote.
Here are some photos of the scenes from the song.
The amount spent by Harmonize to shoot a new video is so much more, especially when you compare how much some of the other famous East African artistes have spent in the past.
For example in the hit song dubbed ‘IYO’ that was released by Diamond Platnumz in 2021 featuring Focalist, Mpara A Jazz and Ntosh Gazi, it reportedly costed him approximately Kshs 4.7 million to shoot.

Award-winning Kenyan rapper Khaligraph Jones also revealed that he spent less than Kshs 100k, on shooting the 2019 hit song dubbed ‘Leave Me Alone’.
The video of the song was infact shot in Dallas, Texa. Papa Jones even said in an interview that he had after the song was released that it is cheaper to shoot videos abroad, than in Kenya.

“I spent less than Kshs 100,000 because unlike Kenya, where if I want to shoot a video, I have to pass through so many limitations. But in the US, I did it freely, with no one asking you to pay for the places you are shooting at” Khaligraph Jones said then.
According to reports at the time, shooting normal music videos in Kenya costs around Kshs 300k.
