Jose Chameleon was on Sunday declared Ugandaâ€™s best artist in Munyonyo on Sunday. South African pop star Yvonne Chaka Chaka declaring the achievement said, â€œGive him support because he is your best artist.â€
â€œHereâ€™s my daughter. Speak to her,â€ Chaka Chaka told Chameleon, gesturing him to hold Kagiso Gabobsele, her daughter and manager.
Chameleon, wearing a white suit and spotting green tinted hair, did not waste any chances. He went on his knees and kissed Gabobseleâ€™s hand. For this he earned a hug and a kiss on the mouth from Chaka Chaka.
She grabbed his hand, raised it and declared him â€œthe best.â€
