Chameleone’s Brother.

Reacting to Chameleone’s defeat, singer Pallaso (his brother), expressed disappointed in the people of Kampala over what he termed as failure to believe in the youth.

“Congratulations my brother. We have walked almost every step of this journey together. Thanks to every one that believed in Joseph Mayanja. I still don't understand how Uganda will attain change by divisions and disbelief in young leaders. 😭 We are stronger together. I am also proud of my self as well, I have sang songs, I have risked my life and my career and much more but above all I have done my part.

I wish our politics was different I wish so many things I wish we were more united that divided, I wish we lift each other more, in the next phase lets love each other more, lets push each other more, lets be so united that no one can break the bond. That's how you win. Old African proverb says its easy to break one single stick standing alone and harder to break many sticks if combined standing together” shared Pallaso.
