Leone Island singer, Jose Chameleone, was the man of the moment on Sunday, after taking Goma city by storm.
Goma is a city in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.
It is located on the northern shore of Lake Kivu, next to the Rwandan city of Gisenyi.
According to Kenya’s Citizen Digital, Chameleone pulled a mammoth crowd as Congolese struggled to get a glimpse of the east African music legend.
When he did take to the podium, Chameleone seemed to magically send the crowd into a stupor with his hit Kipepeo [Kiswahili word for a butterfly].
The crowd sung along on top of their voices asking for more and more.
Citizen Digital reports that when Chameleone left the stage heading to his car, thousands of fans followed and swarmed around him.
This prompted military police to deploy heavily and push away the singing crowds.
Military then surrounded Chameleone and escorted him off the scene.
Fans still tracked him down to an entertainment joint in Goma City later that evening and had a fill of the day.
Videos recorded of his performance showed Chameleone giving Congolese the best show they will talk about for months to come.
He later said on Instagram: “I am that people for the people! You won’t find me on those channels! You will find me in the hearts of the people that need no manual to celebrate Joseph! Thanks to my people who love me unconditionally. Mama gave birth to a great son, and they know; If they don’t then let them know.”
Chameleone is also expected to headline at the tenth edition of Kenya’s Koroga Festival next Sunday December 20, 2015 at the Arboretum Gardens in Nairobi.
