Legendary musician Joseph Mayanja aka Dr. Jose Chameleone has in a viral video making rounds publicly announced that he has never left the National Resistance Movement (NRM) denouncing his membership from Robert Kyagulanyi’s National Unity Platform (NUP) party and Democratic Party to which he was National Mobiliser in the last elections.
Chameleone said this while meeting the NRM officials led by Museveni’s younger brother Michael Nuwagira alias Toyota who was reportedly hosting a birthday celebration for his wife Barbrah in Munyonyo.
The NRM officials on welcoming the celebrated singer back to the ruling party gifted him a brand new Black Range Rover Sport.
“My greatest witness can be Mr. Toyota, my friend, I am still your family, I have never left NRM. If you doubt that, put up your cameras and record me. I am still NRM,” Chameleone said.
He said that he had his issues and situations, but he is a prodigal son.
The singer’s speech must have moved Toyota who snatched him off the stage, held his hand, and led him to where his car, a Range Rover 2021 model was parked.
On reaching the vehicle, Toyota handed his keys to Chameleone and gifted him the car.
It is at this moment that the singer went down on his knees as a 'thank you' gesture.
During the run-up to the 2016 presidential elections, Chameleone was the lead singer in the popular Tubonga Naawe song that headlined President Museveni's campaign on the entertainment front.
However, in the just-concluded election, Jose Chameleone unsuccessfully contested for the Lord Mayorship of Kampala. He was said he represented the DP and that he was backed by the People Power pressure group.
