Famed Ugandan musician Jose Chameleone was hospitalized to a US hospital with a stomach infection.
The musician’s father acknowledged his son is battling a stomach-related disease in the US in an interview with Bukedde TV, following several reports online about the same.
“Chameleone has been sick in the past months. When he moved to America, the illness became worse. He is now so sick, he is on his sickbed. He has been having complications in his stomach that he is currently receiving treatment for.”
According to Chameleone’s father, Gerald Mayanja, the musician had been battling the sickness for several months and ultimately chose to get surgery while visiting America.
Jose Chameleone has been in and out of hospitals numerous times since 2015, when stomach issues were reported.
Gravitty Omutujji, a Ugandan artist, has called on all Ugandan celebrities to come together and pray for the singer.
“As a country, we need to pray for Chameleone, his friends, and everybody, wherever you are, pray for Chameleone because he is terribly ill. At the time I gave him a call, he was heading into the OR room for an operation.”
