Ugandan top musician Mowzey Radio is dead

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Ten days after being beaten into a coma, Ugandan musician Moses Ssekibogo aka Mowzey Radio of the Goodlyfe Crew died on Thursday morning at the intensive care unit at Case Hospital in Kampala.

Case clinic confirmed 35-year-old Mowzey Radio’s death in a statement. Born January 25, 1983, his birthday found him admitted in hospital.

“The management of Case Hospital regret to announce the passing of Moses Ssekibogo alias Mowzey Radio today 1st February 2018 at 6.00am.”

Museveni mourns

Among the first people to mourn Mowzey’s death was Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni.

“I have been told about the untimely death of musician Moses Ssekibogo aka Mowzey Radio. I had only recently made a financial contribution towards his treatment and hoped he would get better. He was a talented young person with a great future ahead of him. May he rest in peace,” Museveni said on twitter.

Mowzey Radio was one of the musicians who composed the Tubonga Nawe song in support of President Museveni during the campaigns for the 2016 elections. The song featured Uganda’s best in Jose Chameleon, Bebe Cool, Radio & Weasel, Juliana, Rema Namakua, Mun*G.

Mowzey had up to 250 songs to his name, was a BET award nominee and one of Africa’s best vocalists and undoubtedly Uganda’s best song writer with more than 400 songs written.

Mowzey Radio’s body was  transferred to Mulago Mortuary for postmortem amidst tight security. After the postmortem, the body was taken to his home in Makindye – Nevaland for a vigil. Church Service will be held Friday 2pm at Rubaga Cathedral and Burial on Saturday 4pm at Kaga Nakawuka.

Last week’s incident

Radio was reportedly knocked out cold by assailants last week in Entebbe after an altercation at De Bar. Police have since made several arrests as they seek answers. No one has yet been charged.

Among those picked up was George Egesa, owner of the bar from where Mowzey was assaulted and then admitted to Emmanuel Clinic in Entebbe, transferred to Nsambya then to Case where hours later  doctors conducted a brain surgery.

Case Hospital, where Mowzey Radio was admitted, was also last week the centre of media attention again after large crowds converged there soon after the arrival of Kampala City socialite Brian Kirumira aka Bryan White. (read about AK47 DEATH in similar incident Page 2)

  44. But how many of these young talented Ugandan artists are going to be sacrificed through beatings; unknown assailants doing whatever they do to kill one by one; first it was AK 47, now it is Radio, there have been frequent attempts on Bebe Cool; these kind of killings, we the people of Africa; the people of East Africa; we the black people, are tired to see these kind of killings done in broad day light and we end up not seeing action taken whatsoever. All we see and hear is arrests that amount to nothing productive.

    We are so scared to enjoy the night moments in places where these music stars have come to because we are going to start thinking that anytime a killer could come and mass murder by shooting or using grenades or bombs to kill these stars and we the normal people become victims as well. What is the police and all other security operatives in Uganda doing to stop this insanity?

    I am a very concerned Rwandan who lives in Rwanda that loves Uganda and Ugandans because I have lived and studied in Uganda for more than 20 years and I feel I am part of Uganda and the people of Uganda are like brothers and sisters to me and these killings are really affecting the way we think and our attitude towards the reckless killings, we are scared and frustrated at the same time of how the security operatives are handling this matter.

    My sincere condolences to the family of Radio, his clue, his music base, his fans and to all Africans and all people who love this young man and the ugandan talent at large.

    For those keeping silent, you should all be ashamed!!!

  45. Too sad. You will always be remembered. May the good Lord Rest Your Soul in Eternal Peace.

  46. Sorry,its Sad To Here That Ugandan Musicial Alway Passing Away Ak47 and Mowzey Radio May Almight God Be With You Rest In Peace

    That injury that involved tremors and coma needed a serious management from UK hospitals instead of Those fool Clinical officers of Case hospital who should have forwarded the patient immediately. Am so so so angry with case hospital management which scientifically knows the meaning of tremors on a patient.
    our man died but out of poor decisions by the poor local scientists. i wish he was not in coma, he would have decided to go to abroad for treatment and he would have lived.
    RIP my bro.
