Taking to his Instagram alongside Byzzo, the pair explained that they had not received any formal communication from Harmoze’s management to use the line. Their management is however following up the matter.

“Hata mimi nimeshinda kupigiwa simu natumiwa matexts mafans wanasema ngoma yetu ya ‘inauma but itabidi uzoee’ imeibwa na Harmonize bana. Na kutoka si tu upload hiyo ngoma hakuna mtu yeyote amewahi tuomba ruhusa kutumia hiyo ngoma hata tumeongea na management yetu tumewauliza kama kuna communication imefanyika but wamesema hakuna tho wanaendelea kuchunguza. So venye si tuko hapa hatujui anything na hakuna mtu alituomba ruhusa,” said Byzzo.
