    Why Moze Radio’s Birthday Is Still Celebrated After His Death; He Built A Legacy That Would Live On After He Stopped Breathing.

    Published

    on

    On the 25th day of January in 1985, a Ugandan music legend was born.

    Moses Nakintije Ssekibogo, also commonly known as Mowzey Radio, sometimes simply referred to as Radio, was a Ugandan musician with a distinctive art in writing and singing. Blessed with extra impressive vocals, he was undoubtedly the main performer of the Ugandan formidable music group Goodlyfe Crew together with Jose Chameleone’s younger brother Weasel.

    Radio would be celebrating his 36th birthday today, but the man who gave Ugandan music so much life now lays lifeless at Nakawuka in Wakiso District, 6 feet under.

    Days after his 33rd birthday, the microphone magician was pronounced dead on the 1st of February in 2018 at Case Clinic in Kampala, Uganda, from a blood clot in his brain sustained in a bar brawl in Entebbe a few days earlier.

    Radio’s friends, family, relatives and celebrities in Uganda and outside the country still celebrate the lyrical genius’ birth. He clearly only stopped breathing, but still lives within his immortal music.

    Radio at the time of his death had up to 250 songs to his name, was a BET award nominee and one of Africa’s best vocalists and undoubtedly among Uganda’s all time best song writers with more than 400 songs written.

    While still at Leon Island, Radio released his first solo song, “Sweet Lady” while he was a backup singer with Weasel, behind Jose Chameleone.

    After Radio’s career took off, it rose so fast he was himself overwhelmed. In a 2014 interview, Radio referred to his incredible growth rate in music as magic.

    Besides his good music, and close family, Weasel is another lasting memory of Radio. He is probably that one person almost everybody thinks about when the name Radio is mentioned

    It is now 3 years since the singer last talked to his partner and you can imagine the pain he still goes through each time he wakes up in the morning knowing he has to face the day alone.

    From living under the same roof, sharing clothes, doing the same business and music, Radio and Weasel practically shared everything! They literally breathed the same air on a daily basis. And all Weasel can do now is organize virtual birthday party celebrations for his fallen brother.

    Weasel initiated a movement of living in the ‘Radio Moment’ specially dedicated to celebrating the music icons success and contribution in the industry. artistes who join the movement take up the challenge to reminisce their best moment about the fallen music general.

    “We Will Always Celebrate You King Moses. +1 Legacy,” Weasel said a few seconds after midnight. Weasel still counts Radio’s years.

    Weasel has a highly undeniable love for women and booze, but Weasel exceptionally loved Radio so much he tattooed his name on his chest.

    Weasel however backslided after the demise of his friend who became family. Weasel has not been releasing so much music of late, save for a new track where he features another talented artiste in Ykee Benda.

    Ykee Benda intimated that Radio was always his inspiration, and he regrets having missed the chance to work with him.

    Ykee Benda could only realiZe his dream through Weasel who continues to push the dream he started with his fallen brother Mowzey Radio by releasing more music despite the latter’s absence.

    On Radio Man, in metaphorical reference to Radio, Weasel links up with Ykee Benda as they smoothly relay their vocals and lyrics on the song as they urge the radio man to play the song for their lovers.

    Ykee Benda regards Mowzey Radio as a ‘gift to the nations’. He did not share really much time with the fallen singer but he admittedly picked so much inspiration from his music.

    NUP party boss Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (L) and Joseph Mayanja (R) alias Bobi Wine

    National Unity Platform (NUP) party boss Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has cautioned fellow artiste Joseph Maayanja alias Chameleone on leaving the cause for the oppressed.

    “Mr. Chameleon’s decision to abandon the oppressed and joined a dictator was his own and I cannot stop him,” Kyagulanyi said in a televised interview on Tuesday.

    “Chameleon like other oppression figures, will be judged by his own actions,” Kyagulanyi added.

    Chameleon having declared over the weekend that he is a true member of the NRM, also revealed that he has never belonged to Kyagulanyi’s NUP.

    After distancing himself from NUP party, Chameleon received a brand new Range Rover from President Museveni’s young brother Nuwagira Michael alias Toyota.

    “My friend Toyota, I am still your family. I have never left NRM, if you doubt that put up your cameras and record me,” Chameleon said.

    During 2021 election campaigns, Chameleon worked closely with NUP having hopes of receiving the party card for the position of Kampala Lord Mayor which he was later denied.

    “Chameleon’s jumping ship not only placed him in bad light as a person who loves riches but also spoke volumes about his self-worth,” Kyagulanyi said.

    “My brother Chameleon should know that when I talked to him and we introduced our beliefs to the people, we said these were not beliefs of Kyagulanyi but Ugandans,” he added.

    Kyagulanyi confirmed that Chameleon came out like others and professed that he was abandoning a dictator and joining the oppressed.

    “So if he wakes up one morning and decides to abandon the oppressed to re-join the dictator to get some money or a car, for me as a person I can’t decide for him, but we will be judged by our actions.”

    Kyagulanyi cautioned that he is not only looking at a person who is hungry for riches but also a person whose sense of self-worth and self dignity is questionable.
