We all have different Missions.”
He added: “Let everybody respect everybody’s opinion.”
Chameleone and a host of other artistes invited President Museveni at the launch of the campaign song dubbed ‘Tubonga Nawe’ – a move that attracted heavy criticism from the president’s opponents.
Museveni contributed Shs 400m to the musicians’ Trust FundThe president’s critics, mainly opposition, said the musicians should not have accepted money from the head-of-state as his government is corrupt and has performed poorly in delivering public services.
Others claimed the donation was obtained from the public coffers and that it should be refunded.
The critics went on to argue that the musicians should have instead recorded a song denouncing what they described as police brutality, lack of ample medicine in hospitals among other issues that affect the common man.
In his defence, Chameleone urged detractors to “Do what you want, I am on my way to do what’s me. If you wanted to tell me what’s right one of you should have shown me the way then.”

Mwesige said the musician continues to participate in community service initiatives and raising funds for the vulnerable members of society and should not be ostracised for singing for the President.
