Juliana Kanyomozi with Laura Kahunde
Most of these names don’t need an introduction. They have dominated the entertainment industry and have entertained us through the years with their talent in music, acting, dancing, and some have even tried a hand in politics.

But did you know that some of your favourite stars are related?

In the spirit of keeping you in the loop, we have compiled a list of your most established celebs who are related.

The Mayanja brothers


While Jose Chameleone’s name might be the most known of the Mayanja siblings, his brothers have created a path for themselves and are also doing great in the music industry.

The Mayanja brothers who have made massive contributions to the Ugandan music industry are Jose Chameleone (Joseph Mayanja), Weasel (Douglas Mayanja), Palasso (Pius Mayanja), and the late AK47 (Emmanuel Mayanja) who passed on more than six years ago.

Before working independently, Weasel and Palasso started as singers in their big brother’s group Leone Island.  Their late brother, AK47 also started his music career as a singer in Leone Island.


Other than being a great star, we also think that Dr.Jose Chameleone is a great big bro. He set up his younger brothers for success in the industry by creating a solid foundation for them.

We can’t wait to listen to all the hits that the Mayanja siblings have in store for us this year.
