Veteran Ugandan artist Jose Chameleone has denied claims that he begged Wasafi Records founder Diamond Platnumz for a collabo.
The Leone Island boss recently traveled to Tanzania to pay his respects to late President John Pombe Magufuli who passed on March 17, 2021.
Upon his return, reports emerged online alleging that Jose Chameleone reached out to Diamond and begged him for a collabo.
Speaking during an interview with BBS TV, Jose Chameleone dismissed the claims noting that he is a big artist who does need help to sustain his career.
“People should learn how to separate real kings from princes. I can never ask Diamond Platnumz for a collaboration; not because I don't want it but that was not my aim. I was mourning my friend and I couldn't do that. If I ever want to do a project with any of them, I will travel for that particular reason," Jose Chameleone said.
He further noted that his visit to Tanzania is not something new as it was his home, and he has several friends there.
Chameleone and the late Magufuli enjoyed a cordial relationship. During his reign, the late Magufuli termed Chameleone as one of the artists who have popularized Swahili language in Uganda.
