President Yoweri Museveni eulogized Moses Ssekibogo aka Mowzey Radio who died this morning at Case Hospital.
Mowzey, who was reportedly injured at De Bar in Entebbe, has been struggling for his life at Case Hospital in Kampala, and in a statement published on his Twitter account President Museveni, who had just made a Shs30 million contribution towards Mowzey’s medical bills, said the singer was a talented young person with a great future ahead of him.
‘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. May he rest in peace’ the president wrote.
Mr Museveni was joined by thousands of other Ugandans in mourning Mowzey among them the Kyabazinga of Busoga kingdom and several artistes.
‘Rest in peace Mowzey Radio, the biggest music talent of this generation on the Continent, you will be dearly missed by everyone’, William Nadiope IV wrote on his twitter account.
MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine
The MP for Kyadondo East Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine said: ‘as an artiste, Radio has shone a light and since we don’t know when we shall die, we need to make the best out of it just Mowzey has done’.
‘He was an inspiration to the young generation, we lost Dan Kumapeesa, AKA 47 and the culprits were not brought to book. One would expect that for the service we offer this country, we need a little protection from the government’, he added.
According to Bobi Wine, Mowzey Radio’s death is a blow to the entertainment industry and the country.
‘To the generation he has been one of the people who have held our flag high globally; but we have lost an icon and we shall realize it slowly’.
‘It’s awful and sad to hear about the sudden and painful exit of our dear brother Moze Radio Sekibogo, I pray that Allah blesses our colleague’s departed soul with eternal peace and give us and his family the strength and support to cope up with the loss as we go through this difficult time’, Bebe Cool wrote on his Facebook page.
He added: ‘A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Surely my namesake will not be forgotten, Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal’.
Rest in Paradise brother!!
Balam Barugahare, who has been closely following Mowzey’s treatment, noted that Case Hospital doctors did their best to manage the situation.
‘I want to thank our mum, the wives and sisters for taking care of him, Mowzey’s case has brought his wives together, he has been a unifying factor’.
‘When something goes wrong, come to me. Our children are dying so much this way; stop fighting, being a man doesn’t mean you fight, walk away, be in shame but stay alive’, Halima Namakula advised.
‘We will never have another Radio. This is a big blow to the industry and the country at large’, said singer Meshach Semakula.
