Jose Chameleone blasts Saha for claiming to be his songwriter
Written by Lindah Nduwumwami on February 27, 2019
Veteran musician Jose Chameleone has spoken out about claims made by his younger fellow singer King Saha to the effect that the latter wrote for Chameleone his hit songs Valu Valu and Badilisha.
The veteran has told King Saha and Calvo, in a message that is both scathing and exalting, ‘not to run mad’with such claims, asserting that as a gifted musician he has always written most of his music. However he has also spared some lines to express his acknowledgement of Saha’s exceptional talent, reminding him he has great songs of his own to claim, and telling him to preserve the respect the two have always had for each other so that they cn remain a good example in the industry.
King Saha claimed on national broadcaster UBC yesterday morning, in an interview with presenter Calvin the Entertainer, that he wrote for Chameleone the songs Valu Valu and Badilisha, which are two of the veteran’s biggest hits of the last few years.
Here’s Chameloene’s post:
“POINT OF CORRECTION!!!!
Calvin Calvo from our National Television UGANDA hosted one of my Favourite Ugandan artiste King Saha a while ago. Whom I was told claimed to be the writer of some of my greatest classics. Now, Both the presenter and Artiste need to walk out of such a silly dream and assumptions!!! You two will run mad soon. Stop clinging and diluting people’s hard work with your mediocrity.
Ugandan people have tried to rob my credit away from my Gods blessed hands. But amazing how God still lifts me above all the hate and greed you all expose in broad day light!! Shamelessly.
I have written all and produced most of my music so pls ask those alleging,Come and borrow my magic.As for Mr. Kingslove You are a great Artiste who has more of your songs to claim. You never wrote none of my songs as people have said you claim.
I love and respect you bro. Let’s keep it positive and live example to the others.
There will never live another Chameleone because my story and music was a perfect portrait of my imagination.
