Kampala Lord Mayor hopeful, Joseph Mayanja aka Jose Chameleone has started his own television station to supplement his income.
Boasting of over 20 years in the music industry, Jose chameleone like any other artiste has been surviving on staging concerts and booked shows but with Covid-19 pandemic, he found himself in a tight spot with little income generating projects.
Like his East African rival, Diamond Platnumz who owns Wasafi TV and FM, Chameleone has decided to start television station named it after his music label, Leone Island. The station is Leone Television.
Chameleone revealed the exciting news through his social media platforms where he revealed that the station will be available soon on Channel 541 on GOtv and Free to Air.
“20 years down the road! Leone Television Loading for all my youths. #ALAALI OUR TELEVISON STATION LOADING! Signal Channel 541 Gotv and free to air”, Chameleone posted on his Instagram account.
Chameleone has tried starting businesses before but end up collapsing. He started Chameleone Phones, Chameleone Boots, DNA Lounge, among others but ended up flopping.
With high costs of operating a television station, we are monitoring how he will run this challenging business.
Chameleone is not the only artiste who has diversified, Sheebah Karungi recently also launched Terraces Bar, Red Events and Holic Pads to supplement her income.
