Jose Chameleone has secretly told close pals that NTV hijacked his Talent XP idea. The Leone Island boss claims that the show was originally his brainchild. The singer said he took the idea to NTV Managing Director Agnes Konde, and it was meant to be called The Leone Island Academy. In the Leone Island Academy, Chameleone and NTV personnel were meant to identify and nurture talent from across the country.

According to pals, Chameleone main objective was to prove and show Uganda and the world that he is a selfless artiste who promotes talent. Over the years Chameleone has been accused of failing or trying to fail several musicians in the Leone Island. Some of these are Papa Cidy, Chagga, Moze Radio, Skeleton among others.
