KAMPALA – Famed Ugandan singer – Jose Chameleon’s planned mega show – dubbed; ‘Gwanga Mujje’ was called within its initial start followed a heavy downpour that left parts of Kampala city and its suburbs flooded.
The early mid-afternoon rain paralysed business in parts of Kampala – including the Lugogo Cricket Oval grounds – the scheduled venue for the concert – where early patrons had already taken up their seats.
The rains that last about 30 minutes – vandalised the event’s giant stage – which had cost Fenon Records over 24 hours to erect – and it could have been impossible for the same platform to be lifted again if organisers hadn’t taken the decision to push the show to February 24.
“Biggie events – the organiser of Jose Chameleone’s Legendary Gwanga Mujje concert has decided to postpone it to a later date this month after heavy rain destroyed the whole stage set-up and music equipment…..,” read a message from the event managers.
Some revellers who had already arrived at the venue minutes before the downpour were left stranded – but many were overheard claiming that they would find their way back – once the organisers decided on then actual new dates on the event.
“We shall be back – bigger and stronger on February 24. For all my fans, keep your tickets safe. See you on 24!” announced the hoarse voiced Chameleone.
The event promoters – including radio and television channels that had planned to broadcast the concert live – resorted to playing Chameleone’s music to possibly commiserate with thousands of Ugandans – whom natural disaster had denied a chance to enjoy on the day.
Jose Chameleone – borne Joseph Mayanja is an AfroBeat artist and musician – who performs – mainly in Luganda, English and Swahili. He started his music career in the early 1990s in Kenya.
