Pallaso Early life

Pallaso was born in Mulago Hospital on September 5, 1987, to Mr. Gerald Mayanja and Ms. Prossy Mayanja. He is one of the couple’s seven children. The family spent the majority of their childhood in Kawempe, a Kampala suburb. Pallaso is from a musical family since three of his brothers (Chameleon, Weasel, and the late AK47 Mayanja) are well-known musicians in Uganda.


Pallaso Music career

Pallaso began his musical career as a member of the band Leone Island, going under the stage name Lizard. Mudigidde, his first single, was released in 2003 and was produced by his brother Dr. Jose Chameleone. The song received a lot of exposure and positive feedback after it was initially performed on Radio Simba by Bobo King and Omulangira Ndawusi.

Pallaso left Uganda in 2004 to work in the United States, where he also pursued his music career. While in America, he changed his name from Pius the Lizard to Pallaso. He collaborated with a local rapper known as The Mess while living in Lewiston, Maine. They worked together on a joint album called Change, which was published in 2013.

Pallaso collaborated with Shaggy and DJ Hidrro to create the song “Remain in Our Hearts” in 2014, which was dedicated to fallen idols such as Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, and The Notorious B.I.G.


Later that year, Pallaso went to Uganda and began his musical adventure with “Amaaso,” a collaboration with Goodlyfe Crew. The song became a number topper and spent several weeks on numerous TV and radio musical charts. Pallaso went on to work on several solo musical projects, including “Wekoledewo kaki,” “Omugongo,” and many others.

He then formed the musical group Team No Sleep with Ugandan musician Sheebah Karungi, with notable musical manager Jeff Kiwa serving as the group’s manager. King Saha, Ak47, and other young musicians will subsequently join the Team No Sleep collective.

The duo released their first single “Mundongo” with Sheebah, followed by “Go Down Low,” which won Best Afro Pop Song at the HiPipo Music Awards in 2015. Pallaso later co-produced “Tamale Mirundi” with King Saha, as well as several more singles like “Kilabe embaliga” and “Sanyu lyange,” a replica of a classic by another Ugandan musician, Sweet Kid.

He began working on a duet with Nigerian rapper Davido for the single “Twatoba” in November 2014, which was released in January 2015. He released it among other 2015 songs such as “Ffe tuliko”, “Tiwa Savage”, “Mubambazanga”, “Tebakusobolola” and many more. Pallaso departed Team No Sleep on May 19, 2015, to start his group, Team Good Music.

Pallaso Controversy

A mob of enraged South Africans attacked Pallaso in response to the attacks on foreigners. It happened in Johannesburg, South Africa’s largest metropolis. He was allegedly pelted with stones and slashed with pangas. He set out to film a new music video for one of the tracks.

After that, he went after Kato Lubwama, who had suggested that Pallaso was attempting to be important. Pallaso was not pleased and instructed Kato to mind his own business and keep out of his personal life.

Pallaso also got into a battle with the cops, and when they tried to arrest him for failing to follow the COVID-19 SOPS, he fled with their handcuffs on. This occurred at Makindye, where he and his family resided.

When Pallaso returned from the United States in 2014, he got into a brawl with the Goodlyf team. Later, he clashed with TNS’s head, Jeff Kiwa, following the death of his younger brother, AK 47.
