Chameleone performed in South Africa on the 19th of June amidst threats from a South African-based Ugandan event organizer that is yet to identified.
Several videos circulated on social media showing that the “mama Mia” hitmaker had been arrested and was not able to perform.
However, hours later, the singer is reported to have stepped on the stage after he solved the issue and was accepted to sing.
During his alleged arrest, a number of naysayers were overheard saying, “We told you you won’t perform in South Africa, you’ve slept in jail today. Your rules only apply in Uganda. You will not perform here in South Africa,” but he still managed to pour their hatred to the ground.
Before he was arrested, he twitted slumming some Ugandans that are living abroad for not being patriotic enough to accept a fellow Ugandan to perform in South Africa.
“All this meant to intimidate and fail a fellow Ugandan in the name of? Well, I guess it’s not the way it should be. My South African fans let’s stay strong and let the music talk! Why Stop the show tonight?” Chameleone tweeted.
Having managed to perform, reports from Chameleone’s camp rubbished the claims that he was arrested.
“Disregard any rumors about Chameleone being arrested. Am live and direct on the scene,” Batt Badru, Chameleone’s close friend wrote on social media.
