Chameleone was yesterday appearing on NTV the Beat explaining to his fans and the country at large why he supports President Museveni and nothing was about to get into his way.
The Moto Moto singer who has been singing for the last 15 years said that in this Tubonge issue, he is representing himself as Joseph Mayanja and not the fans, they are free to support a candidate of their choice.
"The problems I have are more than the 400 million the President gave to artists, I'm paying mortgages...I also have a right to do what I want, I know Besigye, I know Amama but my man is Museveni."
"When Kiprotich wins a medal, does he hide it under the bed, so when I show my love for the President, what's wrong with that?"
The show host, Douglas Lwanga, asked Chameleone why they left out pertinent issues like the copyright, Chameleone said that a number of things were discussed but then again, this being the first time they were meeting the President, they could not talk about everything in that short while.
"We are representable...we could not start telling him that my wife left home, I have a toothache..and for Maurice Kirya not to attend the dinner, that was his choice, we all have choices."
"I'm a musician, so if you want your views to be addressed, use your members of parliament to do that," Chameleone added.
The star singer defended his decision by comparing it to his dad who did not want him to marry Daniella Atim because she was from Acholi; "He wanted me to marry from Buganda, I stood my ground and told my dad she is the one for me and that was my choice," Chameleone said.
