Chameleone performs at a NRM rally.

Has Jose Chameleone finally put his past behind him and dumped the NRM with it? A video making rounds on the internet shows him chanting ‘People Power’ slogans which belong to the opposition supporters.

To many, this does not come off as a surprise but to a few, it is a shocker for a man who showered the ruling party NRM with praises just last year to be rooting for the opposition’s ‘People Power’ force.

In 2015, Jose Chameleone spearheaded a group of celebrities to rally behind president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s ruling party, National Resistance Movement ahead of the 2016 general presidential elections.

The group of artistes included Chameleone himself, Bebe Cool, Radio and Weasel, Pastor Wilson Bugembe, Mun G, Rema Namakula, Annet Nandujja, Judith Babirye, King Saha, Haruna Mubiru, Iryn Namubiru, among others.

They joined their talents to compose the ‘Tubonga Nawe’ song which was used as an anthem during the campaigns for the president and the artistes performed on other NRM functions.

The team was greatly criticized by the general public, especially the opposition party supporters who said the artistes had used their God given talents wrongly and to mislead their fans. Others vowed to boycott their concerts, a thing that never bared fruit as the concerts were successful.

Jose Chameleone has now shifted sides and set up camp in support of Bobi Wine’s ‘People Power’ campaigns. The Leone Island Music Empire CEO has been a force to reckon in the Free Bobi Wine campaign which sought that the Kyadondo East MP is freed from jail after he was arrested and charged with treason.

Chameleone appeared in a video which showed him chanting ‘People Power’ slogans amidst his performance at a local hangout. This sent mixed reactions with people asking if he had really ditched the NRM to side with the opposition.

Well oh well, his name could be his defense. He is Chameleone!
