Security and Namboole stadium authorities have threatened to ban singer, Jose Chameleone, for acting in “a childish way”.
The national stadium warned that if he is not careful, Chameleone risks being banned from attending any soccer match at Namboole for what officials termed his “childish and cheap” ways of seeking popularity.
Following an Informal discussion after the Masaza Cup finals last Saturday between security and stadium management, most officials were of the view that Chameleone should “style up and respect match rules”.
Management had allowed all artistes to access the pitch where a stage was set for them to perform.
They were supposed to remain seated back stage during the match.
With the Kabaka, the Vice President of Uganda and over 40,000 fans in attendance, Chameleone felt his presence had to be made known.
He made a grand entrance on the running truck (moving around the pitch) during the second half of the match waving to fans much to the consternation of security officers.
A senior police officer who tried to lead him off the running truck was hit, as fans threw empty water bottles and other objects into the field.
This went on for about five minutes almost forcing the referee to stop the match.
After the match, Chameleone planned his exit from the stadium in a true “mafia” style with hundreds of soccer fans surrounding him to avoid any potential arrest by security.
Security is now ready to help the musician “mature” next time he tries such “childish” spectacles.
