One more of Jose Chameleone’s dreams has been finally achieved after the legendary Afrigo Band revealed that he is the only artiste featured on their new music album.
Joseph ‘Chameleone’ Mayanja has often expressed his gratitude towards the Afrigo Band members as part of his inspiration and the people who gave him guidance as a young artiste growing into the industry.
