During an exclusive interview with this website in April, Team Good Music singer Pius Mayanja a.k.a Pallaso left hints that at one point he would venture into a political just like his older brother Chameleone.

Sounding skeptical, Pallaso revealed to us that he picks inspiration from Chameleone and Bobi Wine who have made artistes believe that they can go on and pursue their political ambitions regardless of their past.

It so seems like the self-proclaimed King Of The East was passing on a message that one day, he would be among the several musicians contesting for top political positions come 2021.


On Wednesday, his revelation came to life as he visited the Democratic Party offices together with Kampala Mayor aspirant, Jose Chameleone, as the latter declared his allegiance with DP.

A statement confirming Chameleone’s allegiance also revealed that Pallaso had joined the oldest continuing political party in Uganda ahead of the 2021 general elections in which the ‘Kilila’ singer will contest for the Kawempe South MP seat on the DP card.

The statement released read; “Joseph Mayanja aka Dr. Jose Chameleone and his brother Pius Mayanja aka Pallaso have officially joined the Democratic Party. Jose Chameleone coming for Kampala Lord Mayor then Pallaso for MP Kawempe South.”

The two were ushered into their new party amidst loud cheers from a few party members and they seemed ready to take on their new roles at the party.

Does Pallaso have your support come 2021?
