Johannesburg - Chris Chameleon's flight to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) was interrupted by an emergency landing in Namibia.

The singer shared his plans for his trip to the DRC at about 12:00 on Sunday on social network Twitter: "My last tweet for at least a week. flying off to the congo now on a conservation mission with the lca. mosquito repellants & raincoats!"

Five hours later, Chameleon tweeted again: "Just made an emergency landing in windhoek.such strong winds (200kmh!) from the front that our petrol is finished."

Chameleon is an ambassador for the nature conservation group Leadership for Conservation in Africa (LCA). He is on his way to the DRC to check on the progress of a conservation project in the country.

The aim of the project is to establish a nature conservation area in the country by 2020.

Chameleon aims to make contact with musicians with the view of possible collaborations between artists from countries involved in the LCA, such as Madagascar, Ghana, Senegal, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Mali.
