Ugandan star Moses Nakintije Ssekibogo known to many as Mowzey Radio died on 1st February 2018. 

He succumbed after a head injury that put him in a coma for 10 days. 

Radio was one of the most celebrated singer’s in East Africa, for the last decade before his death, he and Weasel, released a couple of hits songs among them Bread And Butter, Magnetic, and Romantic Call among others.

The prime suspect by the name Godfrey Wamala was arrested and remanded At Kigo Prison. The High court in Entebbe found Godfrey Wamala Troy guilty of manslaughter and acquitted him on the murder of Mowzey Radio.

At the time, his management released a statement detailing how he died.

"Between 9 pm and 9:30 pm on Monday night (January 22, 2018), Moses was subjected to a very serious and unprovoked assault by an employee or associate of Egesa George. There had been an exchange of words."

"Moses was exiting the bar to return to Kampala when the as-yet-unidentified assailant viciously attacked him. This resulted in a severe brain injury that required urgent medical attention."

During a radio interview on Kiss FM, Mowzey's music partner Weasel Manizo said it was hard for him to listen to the music they had made together.

"I accepted what happened and am back in the studio recording to prove to the world that I can still go on."

"Radio and I started as friends and later became brothers. He knew what I liked and what I did not like. So losing someone like him was so hard for me."

Despite moving on, Weasel says he had to stop going out when Radio died.

"It was hard to listen to songs we had done together. Everywhere I would go they would play our songs, and that would really hurt me."

At times, Weasel wishes he would get another chance to treasure the friendship they had created.

"The biggest lesson I learnt after losing Radio was to treasure your friends and be good because they might go forever. I regret those times he would complain that I was not picking up his calls when he was still alive, Sometimes I would take life as just normal and would even travel without telling him where I was and he would complain."
