The singing duo of Moses Nakintije aka Mowzey Radio (RIP) and Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel

Artistes who composed the Tubonga Nawe song have been given armed police escorts.

According to a reliable source the artistes were recently given protection by the government after several people reportedly threatened to harm them for their affiliation with President Yoweri Museveni and the National Resistance Movement (NRM).

As a result, reports doing rounds around town indicate, the ‘Tubonga Nawe’ musicians had abandoned night life after the elections for fear of reprisal from the defiant opposition supporters.

However, EagleOnline has learnt that Moses Nakintije Ssekibogo aka Moze Radio, one of Uganda’s dynamic duo of Radio & Weasel, defied the  ‘rule’ that had seemingly been agreed on by all the composers and partied all Monday night at the Station Road based Club Amnesia, with police escorts though.

Radio and Weasel have just returned from Dubai but sources say their show was shunned by Ugandans there, to show solidarity with the opposition.
