Jose Chameleone is one of the most successful artists in the history of the Ugandan music industry. He together with Bobi Wine and Bebe Cool are considered the major pillars of the industry.
His success story is a tale that will live to inspire and encourage young artists to step out of their shell and put in work.
Speaking during a recent interview, Jose Chameleone dished out words of advice to young artists stating that they should be bold and ready to face competition.
“If I was a coward, Uganda wouldn’t have gotten a big artist like me. When I started doing music, I was very broke and boarded a bus to Nairobi. If I hesitated to take this bold step, the country would have missed out on this enormous talent and I encourage these young artists to stand out and don’t undermine themselves because everything is possible with God,” Chameleone said.
Jose Chameleone’s music career started off in 1996 at Kampala’s hangout joint, Missouri where he was working as a DJ. Seeing Bebe Cool’s success, Chameleone decided to move to Nairobi where he got signed by popular label Ogopa DJs.
Jose Chameleone registered his breakthrough when he teamed up Kenyan artiste Redsan releasing his first single titled ‘Bageya’.He has since released major tracks that have garnered popularity across the region including ‘Valu Valu’ and ‘Tubonge’.
