The Uganda Musicians Association (UMA) has come forward to offer their support to musician Joseph Mayanja, also known as Jose Chameleone, after his much-anticipated “Gwanga Mujje” concert was cancelled due to heavy rains. Just a few hours before the concert, a downpour destroyed the stage at Lugogo Cricket Oval, leaving the singer, fans, and organizers in a difficult situation. The stage, set up by Fenon Records, was blown to the ground by the storm.
In a statement, UMA expressed their sympathy towards the injured technical personnel from Fenon Entertainment and wished them a quick recovery. The association emphasized the importance of the safety and well-being of all those involved, commending the organizers for their swift response. They assured the public that the music industry in Uganda remains strong and that they are committed to working together to prevent similar incidents from impacting the livelihoods of their members.
UMA also praised the authorities for their prompt handling of the situation and wished Jose Chameleone the best as he works to reschedule the concert. The singer spoke to the media shortly after the incident and promised to return stronger and in full gear. Although the singer suggested that the concert will resume on February 24th, the organizers proposed February 17th. The final date for the new concert will be announced on Tuesday.
In conclusion, UMA’s support towards Jose Chameleone is a testament to the strong sense of unity and community within the music industry in Uganda. The cancellation of Gwanga Mujje concert was a disappointment to fans and organizers, but the safety and well-being of all those involved remains the top priority. The public can look forward to the rescheduled concert and an exciting performance from Jose Chameleone.
