MTN Uganda has today announced sponsorship of Jose Chameleon’s “Legends Saba Saba” concert slated for Friday, 7th December 2018 at the Lugogo Cricket Oval. Chameleon, whose music recently crossed the 20-year mark, has been one of the long-term musicians that MTN Uganda has supported over the years.
Valery Okecho, the Manager Corporate Communications at MTN Uganda said that for the last twenty years, the telecom company has supported the music industry and continues to do so.
He adds that “MTN and Chameleone have had a strong working relationship over the years; MTN has benefitted from having Uganda’s biggest star entertain MTN customers during MTN events while Jose Chameleone has earned severally from his performances or album launches sponsored by MTN,” Okecho says.
On why the name “Legend Saba Saba;” “I was born in 1979 and that was the time when the Tanzanians came to help oust Idi Amin. There was a big gun mounted at the time in Mutukula called the Saba Saba. It was a powerful gun and I would want to stand in the might of that gun.”

We shall not have not have curtain raisers that have been within for previous concerts. This time it is going to be only Jose Chameleon performing from as early as 8:15 pm till late “adds Balaam.
