A clip from a show on Chamuka TV where a presenter said artistes who don't have five hit songs should kneel before Jose Chameleone while greeting him recently went viral.

During the Saturday, April 4 Talk and Talk Show, Sendi was asked if she agreed with the presenter's opinion.

Eddie Sendi, real name Edward Ssendikadiwa, concurred with the presenter and this prompted a session where the co-hosts would mention a singer and ask him if they belonged to the category of 'kneelers'.

Below are the names Sendi said should kneel and those who should stand while greeting Jose Chameleone:

Jose Chamelone's music career took off after his first song -- Bageya -- was released in 1999 at Hills Studio in Nairobi.

It became a hit in Kenya despite being sung in Luganda.

He followed it up with his first album titled Mama Mia, which also was the title of his breakthrough song that became a hit in 2001.

The opportunity to travel to Kenya came while he was a backup singer for Shanks Vivid Gumaras.

Then Kalamashaka, a Kenyan hip-hop group came to Kampala to perform -- and Shanks invited Chameleone to freestyle for them and they were hooked.

They would invite him to Kenya to record a song with him but this never happened and, stuck in Nairobi, Chameleone had to find a way to survive.

Fun fact: Eddie Sendi is related to Jose Chameleone.
