Below is his speech after the official handover of the travel facility.

“It’s was a great morning as I presented a BUS to WAKISO GIANTS FC at the home ground in Wakiso.

Upon my recent travel around the USA 2018,

As I was on my way to Phoenix I fortunately sat next to one kind Man, As we chatted he took me though an adventure of his business. I also shared to him who I was which got him overwhelmed and upon off boarding the flight we shared contacts and promised to reach out each other again.

Yes we did when I met him again In Oregon, we talked about passions in which I told him of what I do beyond music. I love sports and – Wakiso Giants FC my team that I have loved and supported regardless!!

He picked a lot of interest and asked me what best he can contribute to us.

On more talk he mentioned that he had a bus company and asked Whether giving WAKISO GIANTS one would make a change. I was so happy and immediately reached the administration of this team because he only gave a bus to the team and wasn’t responsible to ship and pay tax for it.

Long story short the Bus is finally here and today morning I officially handed it to the team together with the FUFA president Mr. Moses Magogo

I am so proud that we have ability that we can exploit if given a chance. PURPLE SHARKS – Enjoy your bus LEONE ISLAND MUSIC EMPIRE” Chameleone affirmed.
