Over the weekend, Ugandans celebrated fallen music maestro Moses Sekibogo alias Mowzey Radio’s birthday as they took to social media to celebrate the now fallen hero.
Media personalities were as well quick to get interviews from his past collaborators as well as associates as they celebrated the vocalist’s legacy.
One key collaborator whose interview on a local radio station managed to stand out was Omulangira Suna aka OS Suna with whom they teamed up to orchestrate a monstrous single that launched Radio and Weasel to stardom, Nakudatta.
Suna was heavy at heart as to him; Radio’s death always triggers memories of their last conversation. For years, they had a feud over who rightfully owned Nakudatta and since Goodlyfe blew up to be bigger than him, many people always thought they owned the track.
He narrated the story of how the track came up, with him doing the production in preparation for a new album only for the Goodlyfe team to pass by the studio to find the track in motion. He says that Radio was a quick thinker and because the track sounded like P-Square’s temptation, he added his own words and in one and a half hours, so did Weasel and Nakudatta was born.
Suna said he let go of the feud until he bumped into Radio at the Acacia place, three weeks before his death and he (Radio) apologized for having claimed the song was his yet in the actual sense it wasn’t.
OS says that this made him cry at the funeral and to date, the memory triggers a lot of pain because they had just made up.
Radio’s music lives on even when he is no more.
