Bobi Wine has blasted Bebe Cool and told him to back off issues concerning musicians’ rich list. This comes after a website claimed
Jose Chameleone is number ten on Africa’s musicians’ rich list. The website- www.answersafrica.com ranks Chameleone only behind; Banky W, Hugh Masekela, 2 Face Idibia, Fally Ipupa, Salif Keita, Koffi Olomide, D’banj, P-Square and Youssou N’dour respectively.
Well according to this list, Badilisha star Chameleone is the richest Ugandan singer.
This is what the website posted about Chameleone: “Joseph Mayanja popularly known by his stage name as Joe Chameleon or Jose Chameleone was born in 1979 and is a popular reggae musician from Uganda. Singing mostly in Luganda, English and Swahili, Jose started his career at an young age in the early 1990s as disco MC at Maganjo Mizuri night club while he was still a student at the Progressive Secondary School, Kampala Uganda.
He eventually became affiliated with Kenya’s Ogopa DJs record label. Jose Chameleone’s style of music is a perfect combination of Ugandan folk music, Central African rumba, zouk on a background of reggae. He released one of the most popular songs in the East Africa: Valu Valu and has popularized some of the phrases he uses in his songs to become regular and everyday words such as Basiima Ogenze, Nekolera Maali, Shida Za Dunia among others. He is regarded as a music star who restructured the popular local music in Uganda at the wake of the 21st century.
Jose Chameleone is the biggest money maker in the Eastern Africa and has acquired a range of 4 wheels as his “testament” which include; Cadillac escalade, Mercedes Benz ml 200 super custom convertible and aPremio. He also owns a big mansion among the elites of Uganda in Seguka hills located at the outskirts of Kampala.” Immediately after reading this, Bebe Cool rushed to social media
facebook and wrote:

And now Bobi Wine has reacted stinging Bebe in the process. This is what he wrote:
“It is unfortunate that my name has been dragged into some immature argument. Well, it’s only understandable that my name can’t be ignored when this topic of money and wealth comes up. However, let me put it straight, there’s absolutely no reason for me to have any kind of problem when a comrade in showbiz is ranked the richest artist in Africa just like I would not expect him to have a problem if my wife ranked me the strongest man in the world. This is called Showbiz(ness). As for you our elder brother (Neighbour with no address), no one quarreled when you ranked yourself best artist of all time in Uganda. I really think you crossed borders when you started talking money and wealth because I don’t see you in this area. $$Just
