Jose Chameleone huskily roared into the microphone at 9:20pm. His signature roar, too familiar enough to force people to abandon whatever they were doing and get vantage positions where they could watch the star perform. The maestro band at this point, had already taken their positions at the back of the now blacked-out stage.
The band first played the national anthem before Chameleone’s musical journey was briefly played on the screens. It took him about five minutes to emerge on stage shortly after a brief fireworks display. By this time, everyone was on their feet, especially those who were comfortably seated in the VVIP section.
Kuma Obwesigwa was the first song he sampled before jumping onto Wale Wale.
The first session of Chameleone’s performance had Kipepewo and Nekolera Maali. At the sight of the mammoth crowd, he had to make an assurance to the naysayers.
