Ugandan musician Moses Ssekibogo, alias Mowzey Radio of the Goodlyfe Crew during his hay days.

Radio had reportedly been out at a popular hangout spot in the Entebbe town in Uganda's capital city, Kampala when he got involved in a brawl and was beaten into a coma.

Addressing journalists at the hospital this morning, the Director in Charge In-patients Dr Miriam Apiyo said Radio underwent a successful brain surgery on January 24.

"I have been told about the untimely death of musician Moses Ssekibogo aka Mowzey Radio".

Ugandan media reported that an events promoter, Balaam Barugahara, confirmed the death of Radio, saying he died on Thursday February 1, at around 6 am.

It was revealed that the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni 30 million Ugandan Shillings to his team for his upkeep.

"My son paid school fees for one of his sisters until she graduated recently".

Weasel is the other half of the duo that later simply became known as "Radio and Weasel".

Radio has died at the age of 34 and will be remembered as someone who left a mark in Uganda's music industry at a very early age.

It was a rags to riches story, with both men coming from poor families and making it big - but their partying lifestyle and reports of drug abuse made the headlines too.

The richness of Radio's voice and the depth of his lyrics moved many Ugandans. Radio's death comes two years after the death of Weasel's brother Emmanuel Mayanja (stage name AK-47) in similar circumstances on March 16.
