Ugandan singer Jose Chameleone has apologised to his fans after he publicly exchanged a kiss with his brother Weasel on stage during his recent concert.

In a video, the 'Valuvalu' hitmaker owned up to his mistakes, saying he regrets it. 

Chameleone pointed out that they were carried away by the heat of the moment and out of excitement they ended up kissing on stage.

"I wish to use this opportunity to apologise to my fans and friends for the kiss me and Weasel shared on stage.

He added that most of his friends were offended and didn’t carry it lightly.

"It was just too much energy and excitement and I actually regret it. The energy was too high, and I also apologise on his behalf. Thank you so much for accepting my apologies."

Chameleone’s apology came a day before the Ugandan Parliament was set to re-table a Bill that seeks to prohibit and criminalise any form of sexual relations between persons of the same sex and prohibit the promotion or recognition of such relations.

Bugiri Municipality MP Asuman Basalirwa, the proposer of the anti-homosexuality Bill 2023, termed homosexuality a "human wrong".

"We always talk about human rights, but it is also true that there are human wrongs,” she said.

"Homosexuality is a human wrong that needs to be tackled through a piece of legislation."

Days before his apology, a Ugandan popular preacher, Pastor Martin Ssempa, registered a complaint with the police.

He said he was upset with the indecent and morally offensive acts that happened during the singer's concert.

He had asked police to stop issuing the singer any more permits to perform at concerts until he issues a public apology.

This was not the first time Chameleone and his other brother Weasel have shown affection for each other on stage.

They shared a passionate kiss on the lips while performing at a concert in Bujumbura, Burundi, in 2022.

Chameleone and his other brother Pallaso also stirred a mixed reaction after their recent video dancing while holding each other.

The two were dancing in a very intimate manner in the undated video that surfaced online.

The two are said to have been shooting a music video.

Pallaso posted the short video on his Twitter account and captioned it:

"Happiness matters. I love my brother. 'Bega Bega Remix' dropping soon. Are you ready?"
