If one performance can determine someone’s status, Joseph Mayanja (known to many as Jose Chameleone)’s performance yesterday at Roast and Rhyme clearly suggests that he’s the real definition of a music legend. The musician who is also aspiring to be a politician was the headlining artiste at the event where he performed to expectations.

Chameleone caught many by surprise when he kicked off his performance with songs that he cut his teeth in the industry with. ‘Maama Mia’, ‘Dorotia’, ‘Kuma Obwesigwa’, ‘Jamila’ and ‘Bomboclat’ were among the first songs he opened up with, sending the audience into wild cheers and lip syncing to each of the jams. On most songs like ‘Kipepeo’ given that it was the story teller’s edition, he narrated how the song came about. “Alongside Benon and Vampos, we were booked for a show in Mombasa and we had to take a ferry from Luzira to Mombasa. We took about 12 hours and immediately we reached, some boys started singing Chameleone Kipepeo, that is when I perceived the idea of coming up with the song,” he said.

The 40 year old went on for an hour, giving people endless memories of his over 20 years in the music industry. Before he performed the last couple of songs, his little brother Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel stepped on stage something that hyped up the crowd even more. The two did ‘Bomboclat’ together which made the crowd even wilder. Chameleone then put the fans to test by asking which brother they love more and this is where Weasel stole the show because the crowd cheered for him more than Chameleone.

It was however Mowzey Radio’s tribute that was the highlight of the night when Chameleone performed ‘Enyimba Zomukwano’ as the audience couldn’t help but sing along. He concluded his performance a few minutes to 10pm with songs like Valu Valu’ ‘Kiboko’ and ‘Wale Wale’.

Earlier on in the evening Sam Kimera, Salvado, Mr Mosh and Tamba performed but it was Red Banton’s surprise act that caught many off guard. Having rained half the day, it was expected that the event would be graced by a few people but that wasn’t the case as slay queens cared more for the fun than the mud and many didn’t mind sipping the cold bell lager and by 7pmthe venue was full.
