MY SON CHAMELEON, Politics Is Not Music: You Deceived Muslims That You Converted To Their Faith, You Have Been Using Dangerous Drugs And Have Failed To Turn Up For Concerts After Being Paid – Actor Ashraf Simwogerere Pens Letter To Son Chameleone



Asalaam alaikum warahmaturahi wabarakatuh.

Letter to my “son”,


Dear Joze hope this latter finds you in a good shape. We last met sometime back at Fairway hotel. I remember you had been confined in a wheel chair after that accident in Tanzania. Haaaaa that was the time when the law of diminishing returns in entertainment was still very far from acting on you. Reaching you was not easy but you managed to extend a hand to greet me as an elder. I admired and appreciated you for that.

Up to today, I have to confess. Valu valu is my best song even if I don’t understand a single word. You showed the power of relics in that songs. Thanks a lot son.

Having said that, I was very much impressed when you decided to come out openly and fully join politics. As an artiste myself, I will always support a fellow artiste who declares his intention to join politics. Even if politically we may not agree, ideally dad Ashraf will support any artiste being NRM, DP, FDC, PEOPLE POWER, ETC. Artistes who have participated in Politics have given our industry milage, for we were nobodies in this country. If lawyers, doctors, teachers, priests, soldiers, business ppl, agriculturists, etc join politics why not artistes?.

However CHAMELEON, politics is not like music where one time at Africana hotel in a concert you jumped high from the stage and fell into the soft hands of the audience. In politics when you jump high in air, any mistake you do while up there will cause the audience (read supporters) to run away for you to land on the hard surface. Hajj Ssebagala has the best story. Lord mayor is struggling in air to avoid the hard fall.

Secondly, in politics, your history will either run before or after you. Yours is no better. In anyway your history is going to run after (against) you.

The day Chameleone announce that he had become a Muslim

Your historical basket is full of rotten eggs. A good politician will not deny ownership of his rotten past. But he/she will use them to boost his/her support. Read Obama when he was accused of smoking weed. He did it perfectly. Your negative past should not be a reliability but make it an asset to gain votes.

Starting with your nick name; 1.”CHAMELEON”. On many occasions you have acted like that “ka” animal. You are the guy who change any time. In art, many times you have been paid in advance and reluctantly fail to turn up for concerts. 2)’ You deceived Moslems that you converted to their faith, only to chameleon back to your religion the following day. The moslems are already insinuating that Catholic DPs have brought a moslem catholic CHAMELEON, to fight Latif and Erias (Moslems) for mayorship. 3). We all know that at one time my “son” you used dangerous drugs. 4).There is also that story of some man who was killed in your compound under unclear circumstances. 5) Fighting has been part of your celebrity life.

I repeat all this rot shouldn’t threaten you but make it your challenges of life.

Chameleone with DP boss Norbert Mao

Chameleon you have a tendency of talking any how to disgust your listener. Please your status has changed look up for a respected political manager to manage your oratory and movements. And please respect your manager. Otherwise this is not music where you sacked your managers every week.

Desist from being used to fight other people’s wars otherwise your political carrier will be destroyed. For example already ppl are saying that DP is using you to fight the Load mayor. Always use your consciousness.

Most important my “son”, remember you are carrying a big and heavy mantel for artistes, your family and yourself. Your failure will haunt us all. You successfully carried this mantel in music for 15yrs. Will you carry a political one successfully?. The ball is in your hands.

I wish you the best.

Stay good.

Dad Ashraf Simwogerere.



Abusing The President Is A Sign Of Poor Upbringing – NRM



The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party has warned a section of Ugandans who have made it a hobby to abuse the president that doing so is a sign of poor upbringing.

In a post on their website, the NRM said, “Under Section 24 of the Penal Code Act, it is an offense to alarm or annoys or ridicule the President and the maximum punishment for one found guilty of this offense is imprisonment for life.
This provision is valid until such a time as when it is repealed through the widely known lawful channels. The President is the Fountain of honor protected by law. That is why he also enjoys immunity from prosecution.
To abuse him is to abuse the office he holds in trust of the greater citizenry.”

They add, “Doing so (abusing him) is not a political statement or a victory in settling scores; it is a sign of poor upbringing. Parents, please groom your children and show them the way you would like them to take!
Proverbs 22:6 says: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”.
Show them good examples, educate them; inculcate in them good cultural practices! Thankfully, the law is clear and will always take its course on defiant ones, here and in the afterlife!”

Nambooze Is Dead Politically, She Is Now Trying To Get Back To The Lime Light By Jumping On Every Thing – Musician Full Figure



Musician Nakitto Jennifer Nakanguubi alias Jennifer Full Figure has blasted Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament Betty Nambooze Bakireke for attacking musician Joseph Mayanja alias Jose Chameleon.

During a meeting held at City Hall in Kampala yesterday where the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago was meeting vendors and hawkers, Nambooze cautioned the people of Kampala to vote responsibly come 2021 especially on the position of the Lord Mayor that already has a number of candidates vying for it. These include: the incumbent  Erias Lukwago, Kawempe South Legislator Hajji Latif Ssebagala Sengendo, NRM’s Godfrey Nyakana, former Kampala Security minister Gen. Henry Tumukunde and Musician Jose Chameleon .

“Vote wisely when that time comes, know the person who has been there for you, who is still there for you and who will be there for you. Don’t just vote anyhow. Let everyone do what they know best , musicians should concentrate on music as well the politicians play our part. You know where Lukwago has brought you from and how he has fought for you, let no one deceive you,” Nambooze rallied the vendors and hawkers at City Hall.

These remarks left the outspoken musician Full Figure, who is a Chameleone sympathiser unhappy, she decided to fire at Nambooze calling her political future dead.

“Nambooze you are dead, you are just looking for a way out. Stop criticising our own. Let the people decide on who they want to put in power. Maybe you just want to be in the news but I think Lukwago has served enough and it’s time for the young blood to take over,” Full figure said.

Full Figure also reminded the Mukono legislator that all opposition leaders are in the same struggle and there is no need to fight each other because they have the same enemy.

When the Grapevine contacted Betty Nambooze, she declined to respond to Full Figure’s remarks saying that she is looking for cheap popularity since she is already a failure musically.

Early this year, Full Figure announced her intention to unseat the Kampala woman Member of Parliament Nabilah Nagayi Sempala.

I Am Not Lukwago’s Level, Nambooze Should Stop Using Scarecrow Tactics Against Other Politicians – Abed Bwanika In Bitter Exchange With Nambooze



Three times presidential candidate Dr. Abed Bwanika has dropped his early ambitions of standing against incumbent Kampala lord mayor Erias Lukwago in the 2021 elections.

In April this year, Bwanika boasted on different political platforms and in the media that he was given the people Power DP Block flag for Kampala Lord mayor ship. The city pastor claimed that his victory against Lukwago was going to be smooth since city dwellers were not happy with Lukwago’s  double standard kind of politics. The veteran doctor said that Lukwago was not going to survive the people power wave led by Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi alis Bobi Wine unless he denounces FDC strongman Kizza Besigye whom he claims is against political change in the country.

Other DP Block members like former Makindye East legislator Michael Mabike, soft spoken Lubega Mukaku moral boosted Bwanika that he has high chances of defeating Lukwago.


Appearing on ‘palamenti yaffe’, a political talk show on Buganda kingdom’s CBS radio, Bwanika disowned his early political ambitions to challenge Lukwago while answering hard questions put to him by Lukwago’s henchman and reknown radio aller Makolo Kavuma.

“Let me clear the air please Mr Makolo Kavuma, I don’t know why you are labouring to defend Mr. Lukwago’s seat in the upcoming General election.  Let his achievements speak for him if you think that he has performed to the expectation of his voters. By the way for your information I don’t have any ambition to challenge Lukwago even though I have the ability because I am not at that level. For me I am going back to my area in Lwengo to stand there, I don’t need this malice politics of yours here in Kampala,” the outspoken PDP President said. 

Bwanika’s submissions forced jubilatant Mukono Municipality legislator Betty Nambooze to declare in public what Lukwago did to him to hate him so much so that his friends compensate him.  The former Bukedde newspaper correspondent in greater Mukono submitted that people especially here in Buganda are wondering why Bwanika always attacks Lukwago even if he is not the one responsible for the said problem.

Nambooze openly told Bwanika that Lukwago is among the politicians who are promoting Buganda interest and he must be handled sensitively. The highly charged Bwanika blasted Nambooze and warned her to stop claiming that they (Nambooze and Lukwago) are true Baganda who are fighting for Buganda’s interests.

“ Nambooze, please stop that nonsense and blackmail, I never applied to be on this programmer which you and Lukwago are using to intimidate people who try to challenge your weaknesses. I am not going to be intimidated by your words because I am also a muganda like any person here including Buganda premier Charles Peter Mayiga,” a furious Bwanika said. Bwanika wondered why Nambooze and Lukwago didn’t use their strong influence to force government to give Masaka municipality city status but had to wait for the Kabaka of Buganda to comment on the matter.

He blamed Nambooze for using scarecrow tactics to fight any true Muganda who tries to fight for the Kingdom that is why the kingdom is losing its share on the national cake. The charged Bwanika was cooled down by program moderator Meddie Nsereko Sebuliba who comforted him.
