Ugandan singing doctor and East African music legend, Dr Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone, was once again given a military escort in the neighbouring Congo.
Chameleone was in Congo over the weekend to attend the Amani Festival held in Goma, the capital city of North Kivu province in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.
“Just in case you missed what happened through the weekend, I was in Goma – Democratic Republic of Congo and what I witnessed was the unstoppable power of my music that has sold me Border to Border,” the legend said on return.
“I deeply thank everyone who has believed in me from day one. Just know you part of my story as Great Joseph of this generation. We have together been through stiff challenges but with the mighty blessing from God much more is to be overcome.”
Chameleone said his editing team prepared the full Goma experience for fans’ eyes to witness the unstoppable power.
“Thanks my dear fans for the Love that inspires me to reach out for the skies and more.”
The Leone Island Crew boss asked God to bless Congo, a country with many wonders.
“Not only are you rich with minerals but good hearts. Am so happy we made history together. I am signing out back to the pearl of Africa – Uganda,” Chameleone suddenly turned poetic.
While leaving the city back to Uganda, Chameleone was accorded a military convoy all the way to the airport.
In 2015, the legendary singer caused a stir in Congo when he was surrounded by military police as he was making his way from the podium he had performed on.
Chameleone then held an energetic show in the city of Goma to a mammoth crowd which was thrilled by the artiste’s performance of his repertoire.
As he was heading to his car, thousands of fans followed him but were time and again pushed away by the heavy security which was manning him.

This did not stop the fans from singing at the top of their voices to Chameleone’s famous Kipepeo hit.
Video recordings of Chameleone’s performance in Goma made their way to social media, prompting Kenya’s Victoria Kimani to applaud the seasoned singer.
Evidently impressed by the turn out too, Chameleone patted himself on the back by taking to Instagram.
