Tanzanian singer Harmonize could not contain his emotions on Saturday, March 20 after viewing late President John Pombe Magufuli’s lifeless body.
The singer was destroyed and dismayed after viewing the late president’s body and had to be consoled during Magufuli’s requiem mass held at St Peter’s Oysterbay Church.
As earlier reported by GOTTA.news, the singer released a heartbreaking video crying uncontrollably after learning of Magufuli’s death.
