Two people have been arrested to help police with their investigations into the beating of Ugandan musician Moses Ssekibogo, best known as Mowzey Radio of the Goodlyfe Crew. The singer who had been admitted to a hospital following a scuffle at a club in Kampala last week succumbed to the injuries. Following the incident, Radio was rushed to the hospital where he was in a coma before being transferred to the ICU.
Earlier, his management had reported that his health was improving and urged his fans to keep praying for him. Mr Balaam Barugahara, an events promoter told this reporter that Radio died Thursday at about 6am. Radio died at Case Hospital in Kampala where he had been admitted after reportedly being beaten into coma following a fight at De Bar, a local hang-out spot in Entebbe town last week. “The management of Case Hospital regret to announce the passing of Moses Ssekibogo alias Moze Radio today 1st February 2018 at 6:00 am,” read part of the statement issued by Case Hospital.
Did he have a premonition on his death? Well, according to Ugandan local media, a song he did that was released on his YouTube page while he was hospitalized seems to suggest so. They reported that the song ‘Tambula Nange’ which translates to ‘Walk with Me’ was like a last prayer to God, asking for guidance and mercy for his life. In Tambula Nange- sang in Baganda- Mowzey thanked God for the gift of life saying he was not afraid of the present but trusts in his guidance for the future.
Devasted by the news, his mother Jane Kasubo stated that she was at a loss as his son meant everything to her. “My son has been everything to me. He always gave me even the little he had. Mowzey Radio always took care of his sisters.“However much others knew him as a chaotic man, I knew him as a simple, humble and talented son. “My son paid school fees for one of his sisters until she graduated recently. He had very many friends. I am left with nothing,” said Kasubo.
