Kamala wrestled for Mid-South Wrestling in Memphis and World Class Championship Wrestling in Dallas throughout the early 1980s. In Mid-South Wrestling, Kamala was nicknamed "The Ugandan Giant" and was managed by General Skandor Akbar and Friday. He was originally billed as a former bodyguard of President of Uganda Idi Amin.
 
In 1984, Kamala joined the World Wrestling Federation, where he was managed by his "handler", Kim Chee and by King Curtis Iaukea. In this run Kamala battled Hulk Hogan, André the Giant, and eventually feuded with Jake "the Snake" Roberts in which he was shown to be afraid of snakes. Kamala was also known to team with Wild Samoan Sika before leaving the WWF in the late 80s. Kamala returned in the mid-90s along with Kim Chee, this time managed by Harvey Wippleman. After a loss to the Undertaker in the first televised Coffin Match at Survivor Series 1992, Kamala left Harvey Wippleman and turned face under the tutelage of the newly ordained Reverend Slick. On one occassion Kamala even went bowling on a famous Coliseum Video incident along with Reverend Slick. After once again leaving the WWF in the mid-90s Kamala was part of Kevin Sullivan's Dungeon of Doom in WCW trying to end the career of Hulk Hogan. Kamala left the promotion in October 1995 as he was on a pay-per-appearance deal. Kamala said that his WCW stint was the least enjoyable time of his career and that he didn't wrestle for seven years after his stint with the promotion.
 
In 2003, Kamala also worked at JCW (Juggalo Championshit Wrestling) where, accompanied by a Kim Chee-like manager (Masked Negotiator), he defeated jobber, Tom "The Scrub" Dub in a "Loser Leaves JCW" match. The match can be seen on JCW Vol. 3 (November 11, 2003).
Harris participated in the "Gimmick Battle Royal" at WrestleMania X-Seven, and was eliminated by Sgt. Slaughter. On July 26, 2004 Harris made a surprise return to World Wrestling Entertainment, participating in a RAW Diva Search segment. Kamala made an appearance on the August 11, 2005 edition of WWE SmackDown!. Former manager Kim Chee came to the ring with him, but his match with Randy Orton ended in a no decision when a message from The Undertaker interrupted the match. Kamala also appeared at the 2005 Taboo Tuesday event, where he was one of the choices for Eugene's tag team partner. He lost out to Jimmy Snuka, but came down at the end of the match and delivered a big splash to Tyson Tomko.
On June 25, 2006 at Vengeance 2006, he accompanied Eugene to the ring along with Doink the Clown and Hacksaw Jim Duggan to take on Umaga. As the dominant Umaga quickly won the match, he destructively took out everyone afterwards except for Kamala. He faced Umaga on the June 26, 2006 edition of Monday Night Raw where he was defeated.
