Singer Joseph Mayanja alias Chameleone has been inspired to release a brand new song, minutes after he fed on tear gas from police during the launch of his campaign offices and command centre in Kampala.
Mayanja claims he was hurt yesterday as police used tear gas to disperse his supporters that had came to witness his new political office launch on Balintuma road in Mengo.
Mayanja had called for the gathering where he would launch his own election campaign team at around midday, but this was interrupted after police failed to get a positive response from the crowd following a plea to disperse peacefully.
Mayanja later claimed he was injured in the process, citing pain in the left leg.
“I am receiving treatment. My left leg has been injured,” Mayanja said.
In a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, Mayanja asked what crime he committed while trying to launch his office.
“Our office launch has been interrupted. So we planned to also launch my task force that will hand in hand work with me to the coming Lord Mayor elections. Question is What is our crime?” he wondered.
Moments later, the singer dashed to the studio and released a song dubbed Koona. In the song, he sings about Bobi Wine’s ambitions as well as his Lord Mayor race.
“For what you did today, I AM PICKING MY BEST TOOLS that have brought me 20 years of time. You got the tear Gas. We got the hope of the people!! PERIOD!” the singer vowed before hitting studio.
