Over the weekend, President John Pombe Magufuli brought together nemesis Diamond Platnumz, Harmonize and Alikiba at State House during a special lunch that had been organized by the ruling party in Tanzania Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM).
During the special lunch, Magufuli made sure that the three (Alikiba, Harmonize and Diamond) are sharing one table in the quest to iron out their difference in the music industry.
In his speech, Magufuli mentioned that he was happy to see the three who are always pitted against each for the crown of the Bongo Flava King share a Table, because it proves that CCM is bigger than their individual differences.
