Leone Island singing Doctor Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone and his brother Pius Mayanja aka Pallaso have officially joined the Democratic Party.
In May this year, Chameleone joined People Power Movement while attending Democratic Party [DP] Reunion held in Jinja town and attended by Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, the founder of People Power pressure group.
The AfroBeat artist declared his intention to contest for Kampala Capital City Authority Lord Mayor seat currently occupied by Erias Lukwago.
Speaking during DP- UYD reunion, Chameleone who was clad in a red shirt and beret, said he is now part of the group.
“I’m in Opposition, stop pushing me to NRM. I’m the only person who had not yet joined you. This is the time for youth,’’ he said.
He added: “Tell Lukwago that he should hand over the keys to me. Some thought I was not serious, I am educated, I’m not in drama, I’m very serious.”
His brother Pallaso wants to run for MP Kawempe South.
Pallaso, a recording artiste, songwriter, producer and videographer, sings in Luganda, mixes with English and sometimes Kiswahili.
His music genre specialty is Afrobeat, Hip hop, Dancehall, Afropop, and RnB.
The brothers from Mayanja family now join other musicians who have turned to politics like; gospel singer Judith Babirye, comedian Kato Lubwama and singer Daniel Kazibwe aka Ragga Dee.
