Leone Island singing doctor Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone and his brother Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel TV have ganged up against Gagamel singer Moses Ssali aka Bebe Cool, insulting and trashing his 2018 hit song list.
The controversial list names top songs of 2018 including musician Bobi Wine’s “Kyarenga” with Fik famaica and Sheebah Karungi getting special recognition.
The list evoked ill feelings in the Leone Island camp with Chameleone questioning its credibility while Weasel even termed it “work of foolish people”.
“Anyway we gwaan somewhere!!! Good morning Grate Make. They make lists we are the listened ones,” Chameleone said on social media while capturing himself in a live Facebook video where he trashes the list.
“Some people must become music analysts and fans. They should let musicians do the job so they sit and wait to levy. Any how we didn’t learn to do what we do. We are born like this,” he said in calculated attacks on Bebe Cool.
“Who has more fans?” Chameleone asked as his crew jeered and laughed. He then acted as a presenter on his [TV] and started interviewing his brother Weasel.
Chameleone: Are you on the list made by big size [Bebe]?
Weasel: I want to be on the list of that fool. It doesn’t even make sense.
Chameleone: what number are you on that list?
Weasel: I don’t even know the number.
Chameleone: okay, send greetings.
Weasel: I send greetings to all those fools and their foolish lists.
Chameleone then returns to his [viewers] and explains that the list is good but it only reflects Bebe Cool’s level of understanding.
Chameleone is number 17 on the list with his songs Champion and Mateka.
He congratulated those who made it to the list: “I send greetings to Bebe Cool. I love him very much. Thank you for buying me chicken and helping me get where I am now today.”
He went on: “I want him to know that I appreciate. That list has become a list. We can also make our own list. Like the bible says, you don’t judge others.”
Chameleone said the Ugandan industry is very young and there is need to give credibility.
“Lists are not important; we have more important things to talk about. Those who the list, love the list. Those who want the beast, love the beast and those who want the rest, we are still the rest.”
