Row Between Bebe Cool, Chameleone Erupts
If Uganda does not come to a standstill, the sun will. Top musicians Bebe Cool and Jose Chameleone are engaged in a cyber confrontation which observers fear could to flare up in the coming days.
Drama started unfolding last month when Bebe Cool used his Facebook page to ridicule Chameleone for disappointing his fans by not turning up for the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony.
“İ once had two neighbours A and B. Four months ago, neighbour A told me he was going to rap at the Olympics faster than Usain Bolt. Neighbour B, not wanting to be out-done, told us he had bought a canoe and he was yet to buy a fishing net. All this was simply air,” said Bebe.
This was perceived as a veiled attack on Chameleone (neighbor A) for not performing in London as he had promised; and Bobi Wine for claiming to have bought a yatch.
It later turned out that the yatch belonged to a businessman in Kampala.
Following this incident, Chameleone also used his Facebook account where he posted pictures of a flashy apartment he recently constructed for his wife Daniella in Bweyogerere to indirectly hit at Bebe Cool who is still renting a house for his family.
Chameleone asked “neighbor Z” to wake up and “work.”

The post generated a lot of public debate with Bebe’s fans warning the Valu Valu star against pouring scorn on the former.
Feeling the heat, Chameleone has now posted on his Facebook page: “I WANT TO BE CLEAR ON THIS!!
“NEIGHBOUR "Z" has nothing to do with any of the comrades you are pasting in.
This is just a celebration of an achievement and no biff between. Whosoever is misinterpreting it has own intent!”
It’s yet unclear whether the musicians have connived to pull a publicity stunt.
The two musicians have in the past fabricated brawls to pull crowds for their music concerts.
In fact Bebe Cool’s Kamwako album launch is due November 2 at Kyadondo Rugby rounds.
