The National Unity Platform party president Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert alias Bobi Wine has today sent a warm birthday tribute to his fellow legendary music icon Joseph Mayanja largely famed for his stage name Chameleone.
Chameleone, an Afrobeat artiste today turns 44. The veteran artiste is married to Daniella Amin with whom they sired about 4 known children.
“Sending warm birthday greetings to my brother Jose Chameleone.
Thank you for your monumental contribution to the Ugandan music industry. Your talent and passion is and will be an inspiration for many generations to come. Big up and live up.
Happy birthday,” Bobi wrote.
Bobi and Chameleone have been close buddies though separated by the politics due to the latter’s inconsistencies. Though Chameleone sings songs that ridicule poir governance by the NRM government, he has lately gone ahead to express support for the incumbent Gen. Yoweri Museveni.
On the other hand, Bobi has since time been opposed to Museveni’s tyranny. He is the only celebated artiste who in 2016 declined to be part of the Tubonga Nawe project that brought musicians together to back Museveni’s fifth term bid.
