Uganda’s fallen musician Moses Sekibogo commonly known as Mowzey Radio has finally been put to rest on Saturday afternoon at his home in Kagga Village, Wakiso, Uganda.
Mowzey’s casket was lowered in his grave amidst thousands of mourners who struggled to get one last glance at their idol as tear streamed from their eyes.
Mowzey who turned 35 years last month died on Thursday morning at Case Hospital in Kampala where he was admitted after reportedly being beaten into comma in a fight at De Bar in Entebbe two weeks ago.
Legendary Ugandan Musician Jose Chameleone who was dressed in a military uniform made an extremely nasty statement during the burial of Mowzy Radio;
“We are tired of contempt from you people, we are tired of burying our brothers for no good reason. First it was AK47 now it is Radio, we are tired of not valuing us and treating us in such a way,” Chameleone said.
Chamileon’s brother Weasel recently said, “Radio and I started when we had nothing, we promised each other heaven and earth. As you see we started moving places and enjoying ourselves but unfortunately my brother has left me alone,
Mowzey’s mother also spoke terribly, cursing whoever put her son in the grave at such an early age as she wept on the microphone.
Musician Lillian Mbabazi, Mowzey’s wife spoke on the death of the father of her children while sobbing.
“We have lost a friend, a father and the greatest musician of all time. I thank you all who have stood with us during such a trying moment,” Lillian said.
Mowzey was one of the main performers of the Ugandan music group Goodlyfe Crew with Chameleone’s brother Weasel, he released his first solo song, “Sweet Lady” when he was still in Leone Island.
He began as a backup singer along with Weasel, behind Jose Chameleone. Following disagreements between Chameleone and the pair, Radio and Weasel quit the group and formed Goodlyfe Crew.
