His music has been embraced by all age groups and his concerts are never a let down. With such a successful career, one is bound to ask themselves how he does it. But only he can answer that question.

Apart from being a musician, Chameleone is a husband and a dad. He never shies away from sharing photos of his family on social media, and I must say he has a beautiful family.


Many celebrities tend to hide their past once they become famous. They rarely share photos of themselves when they were young. But the ‘Valu Valu’ hitmaker is not about that life.

Why Jose Chameleone moved his family to the USA


Ugandan crooner Jose Chameleone has been showing off pictures of his beautiful family living in the USA.

His wife and five kids relocated to Michigan, USA a while back but did not let us in on the reason why.

While many of us thought it’s because of the opportunities the first world offers, it turns out there is another solid reason.


Chameleone declared his intention to contest for the Kampala Lord mayoral race in the 2021 general election this year in June.

His political ambitions hit a raw nerve. Soon after his announcement, President Museveni unfollowed him on social media,

To avoid the pitfalls that many young families in politics fall, Chameleone relocated his family to the USA to protect them from the messy and nasty situations.


One time Jose got cryptic about facing challenges owing to his ambitions, hinting that

The stones people throw at you are meant for you to put in use to build a strong inner you. I have been intimidated countless times by those people who don’t believe in starting a journey with challenges that makes a strong and brave being.

Jose Chameleone is not the first musician to get into politics. His friend Bobi Wine, an MP in the current parliament has faced troubles and tribulations that knows no bounds.

In Kenya, we have Jaguar, or Charles Njagua the Starehe MP who is a singer.
