It was a star studded audience at Jose Chameleone’s One Million One Man Charity concert at Kampala Serena Hotel Last Thursday. However one man who almost stole the show from Chameleone was Ghetto President H.E Bobi Wine.
The Ghetto President surprised many when he turned up for the concert smartly dressed along with Ghetto first lady Barbara Itungo Kyagulanyi. Jose Chameleone, Bobi Wine, and Bebe Cool who are Uganda’s top artists were once tight friends before their music rivalry split them up giving a rise to one of the industry’s fiercest beef among the three.
Although the Chief guest First Lady and Minister of Karamoja affairs was in attendance, it was Bobi who excited fans after Chameleone recognized his presence in the crowd. The crowd which was full of local celebrities went wild after Bobi was asked to ‘wave’ at them.
And Chameleone had a request session in which he invited Bobi on stage after Bobi made his request and dedicated it to the man himself and the people of Karamoja. The fans cheered them on as Chameleone performed Kuma Obwesigwa and other old songs, then posed for photos.
In the audience was Chief guest Mama Janet Museveni who was accompanied by her junior Minister Barbara Oundo and events MC MC Isaac Rucci was the host with only Papa Cidy performing alongside Jose Chameleone and the Band.
Chameleone’s wife Daniela Atim was together with other members of the family which included Abba Marcus the new singing star in the family. Prince Daudi Kintu Wasajja represented the royals and many artists including Tanzanian AY, Mesach Semakula, King Michael, Big Eye, Mun G, Ragga D, Red Banton were also in attendance as well as Police boss Afande Kaweesa and city socialites Judith Heard, Sheila and Frank Gashumba, Meddie Sentongo among others.
Hopefully this the beginning of the end of dirty beef in the music industry with the gesture shown by the artists.
