Judges Irked By Defilement in Rwenzori Region

There was drama over the weekend at Club Venom when a bitter exchange ensued between singer, order Jose Chameleon and one Roja, link a Dj at the club.

In an exclusive interview with Roja, web he says that the trouble started when one of Chameleone’s men approached him with a flash disk and asked him to play the singer’s latest song for the audience to have a feel of him since he (chameleon) was in the house.

“I asked him to pass it to the next Dj as the Mac Book I was using to play the music had both ports engaged,” Roja said.

Rojer says that the first messenger left only to return minutes later in a group led by one, Producer Kays and insisted that Chameleone’s songs had to be played.

“They violently accused me of playing lousy music when the music doctor was in the house,” Roja said.

When Roja turned down the demands of the group, Chameleone himself showed up at the DJ’s box and started asking why Roja was acting so adamantly.

When Roja declined to play the music saying that he was being distracted from performing his duties, Chameleone swiftly grabbed a microphone and told the club that the DJ was incompetent and that he was playing lousy music.

Things turned physical as the club security tried to pull the singer from the stage and in the due process, the Wale Wale singer hurled a broken wine glass at Roja.


The singer who is not new to physical fights with fellow artists and DJs remained restless until DJ Roja’s time was up and the next DJ played a number of his songs.
