Musician Jose Chameleone has decided to reward his feet by buying a pair of Nike shoes valued at $12,500 [nearly Shs43,250,000].
The shoes have since become a subject of social media debate.
In his explanation, Chameleone said he was rewarding his feet after nearly breaking his legs in Rwanda 8 years ago.
“I now certify that a lot of people. In our society have a very short Memory and further pay attention to things that don’t matter most to themselves! I almost lost my life 8 years ago in an accident that almost left me feetless!,” he narrates.
“And when I chose to reward my feet for standing me this tall above the envy and hate some people show case they still want me to live their lives and disregard my own. That’s why we lead and the flock follows.”
Chameleone told haters to calm down as these are “just shoes, Just shoes”.
“For those advising me about financial discipline, give me a chance to advise you to. I can’t compromise my desires. IF YOU DO you will regret. We live once. And what the fuss CHINA got an option for you😊 in different Grades 1,2,3,10 your choice.”
At the close of January 2016, the singer performed in Kiambu, Kenya pulling and mesmerising crowds.
Chameleone’s latest song “The ones who are blessed by God” in which he praises God for granting him extraordinary powers, has so far garnered over one million three hundred thousand views on YouTube, according to BBC Swahili.
