Chameleone all set for ‘homecoming’ show

Chameleone is a “Kenyan prodigal son” of sorts. Amongst East Africa’s heavyweight performers, the Ugandan has been performing all over the region, and beyond, but has not staged a performance worth noting in the city of Nairobi in a long time.

Jose Chameleone is a Kenyan prodigal son of sorts. Amongst East Africa’s heavyweight performers, the Ugandan has been performing all over the region, and beyond, but has not staged a performance worth noting in the city of Nairobi in a long time.

Granted, he has put up shows within the city in 2012, 2014, and in January of 2015, the magnitude of the crowd he is expected to perform to on 3 January, 2016, during Koroga Festival is bigger than all those mentioned. In 2014, he was at a show in Athi

River which was a charity event to help raise money for a children’s home.

Chameleone honed his musical skills in Kenya under Ogopa Deejays music production team, where he released tracks like “Bageya”, “Mama Mia”, “Njoo Karibu”, “The Golden Voice” and “Mambo Bado”. The Leone Island boss became more prominent as a

brand when he moved back to his country of origin, and started producing music under his label. He has gone on to win multiple award categories in several award galas all over the continent.

 “It's been a journey of 15 successful years; I’m finally back to where it all started. My fans in Nairobi know that this is where it all started and now is the time they get a loaf of what they baked! I am anticipating a performance they will live to remember," said a visibly excited Chameleone.
