Gerald Mayanja, patriarch of the renowned Mayanja singing brothers – Dr. Jose Chameleone, Weasel, and Pallaso – has shared a profound revelation about his approach towards the end of his life.

In an interview with a local media outlet, he disclosed his intention to prepare his own final resting place, expressing a desire to dig his own grave within the next year.


Far from being a morbid notion, Mayanja clarified that his decision stems from a deep sense of gratitude towards God for the life he has lived thus far.

He emphasized that he no longer harbors fear towards death, viewing it as an inevitable part of existence. Inspired by his late friend Besweli Mulondo, who had prepared his own grave before passing away, Mayanja sees this act as a soul-satisfying tribute to his journey on earth.

Reflecting on the passing of his youngest son, Emmanuel Mayanja, also known as AK47, whose death remains shrouded in mystery, Mayanja’s contemplation on mortality takes on added poignancy.

As the family commemorated nine years since AK47’s untimely demise, Mayanja’s thoughts turned towards the fragility of life and the importance of preparing for the inevitable.

In another heartbreaking revelation, Mayanja shared the news of his eldest son, Humphrey Mayanja, battling cancer. Despite being called back from the United States where he was residing, Humphrey is undergoing treatment at the Uganda Cancer Institute, with the family facing the additional hardship of being unable to visit him due to restrictions.

Through Mayanja’s candid reflections, we are reminded of the complexities of life, the inevitability of death, and the profound impact of family bonds in times of both joy and sorrow. His decision to prepare his own grave serves as a poignant reminder to cherish each moment and prepare for the unknown with grace and acceptance.
