Jose Chameleone’s mum defends him for kissing brother on stage

Proscovia Musoke, the mother of Ugandan artistes Jose Chameleone and Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel Manizo, has defended her sons after kissing while on stage a few weeks ago.

Ms Musoke said her sons were harshly judged by the public.

“That’s his brother. I don’t think it’s that bad. It’s just that people saw it through an African lens,” Musoke said while speaking to Ugandan media.

“We are Africans, yes, but your brother, even in the Bible,” she went on before Pallaso, who is also her son, interrupted to say that the issue should stop being discussed anymore.

Pallaso himself has come under fire after he released the video of his new song in which he is seen dancing with Chameleone in a manner that some observers have said should be left to male-female dances.

The incident happened on on February 24 when Chameleone performed at a jam-packed concert at Lugogo Cricket Oval in Kampala.

At some point during the performance, Weasel joined Chameleone on stage and they locked lips and kissed before thousands of revelers.

Chameleone has since apologized to his fans, saying he did it out of excitement.

“I sincerely apologise. It was just too much energy, excitement. I actually regret it. The energy was so high, and it was just a wrong way to share it with Weasel, my brother, and I also apologise on behalf of him. Thank you so much for accepting my apologies,” said Chameleone.

Chameleone also told Mambo Mseto that he was just appreciating his brother, Weasel, for standing with him even when nobody believed in him.

“I have a family. I have parents and I have children. As an African, I apologize to all. People said all sort of things after my show failed. The only people who remained with me were Pallaso and Weasel and they pushed me. I am sorry about what I did,” he said.

“I am not trying to define or disrespect anyone. I am sorry to my people since as a public person, I would have done it better but I am not an angel. It was emotional since most people had prayed that our show would fail. It was a gesture of joy but a wrong gesture and I am sorry.”

However, this is not the first time Chameleone and his brothers raised eye brows with their behaviour. Chameleone and Weasel also kissed on stage during a past concert in Bujumbura.
