Days after Afro-beat singer Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone, announced that he had joined the Opposition Democratic Party, police have cancelled his scheduled concerts in Masaka sub-region. The Singer who recently expressed his intentions to run for the Kampala City Mayoral race come 2021 is always booked for weekend shows.
It seems like his schedule has started becoming a busy one as he has started turning down most of the shows on short notice.
Over the weekend, the singer was supposed to perform in Bukomansimbi but chose to attend Bad Black’s Birthday party over other shows. The show in Bukomansimbi was one of the first shows with another one in Kyotera and the last one in Mutukula.
Chameleone didn’t show up at the event that was supposed to take place at the main football pitch on Friday and this got the crowd rowdy. In a bid to scare away the people, Police fired several bullets in the air and everyone dispersed.
According to Mr Robert Nkuke aka Mutima, one of Chameleon’s managers, police told them to secure clearance from police headquarters in Kampala if they are to hold shows in the region. “Usually, it is local police and leaders who clear our shows. We really wonder why this time we are being asked to seek clearance from Kampala,” he said on Monday.
Police, according to our source blocked the other two shows and they said that they were cancelled because that they were informed that his shows have turned Political just like Bobi Wine’s.
