Celebrities and Christians alike have been pouring out tributes to talented musician Mowzey Radio, 33, who passed away on Thursday.

Mowzey died in hospital from complications related to injuries he suffered after a brawl in a bar at Entebbe .

In his statement to media, Member of Parliament, and well known musician, Kyagulanyi Robert Sentamu, described the singer’s death as a blow to the entertainment industry, the country, and to the generation.

“He has been one of the people who have held our flag high globally – we have lost an icon and we shall realize it slowly,” he said.

Although many might associate the singer to violence given the events that mired his death, those who were close to him share quite a number of things contrary, including the Founder of Praise City Gathering and gospel musician Minista Sami K, who says he often had fellowship with Mowzey

“He got to a place where he was really tired of all that comes with the fame and partying. His love for God grew that he would even pray for me and open with a word of prayer every time we met,” Minista Sami K  told this reporter.

Mowzey and Sami K were planning on doing a gospel song together days before his accident.

“He loved the meetings we had because they drew him closer to God and was always touched by people’s suffering and pain,” Minista Sami K  narrated.

According to Minista Sami K , Mowzey kept saying the church ought to be the answer to the pain and sorrow and not taking from people.

“He love children so much to the extent he had a school and was looking after lots of kids and paying for their scholastic materials,” he continued.

In June 2017, Mowzey released his first solo gospel album, Kilimanjaro, whose singles, ‘Katonda Tambula Nange’ (loosely translated to mean ‘God, walk with me’), Niwe Yahwe (loosely translated to mean ‘You are God’) peaked at No. 1 on on several main stream stations at the point of is death.

“He has been one of the people who have held our flag high globally – we have lost an icon and we shall realize it slowly,” he said.

In a 2014 interview with Crystal Newman of Sanyu FM, he said “I don’t know how everything (stardom) happened. It was like magic. I woke up in the morning, I was the same guy who went to P2, who sat S4 (at Holy Cross, Wanyange, now Lake View Wanyange), but our music was hitting.”

Gospel singer Cooper Ssali of G-way said on Thursday “it certainly wasn’t Gods plan that” Mowzey had to go this early.

“The enemy has robbed us of one of our most talented. May the spirit of God help us to discover purpose in life, because when the purpose of life is not understood, life is lived as a burden, destiny can be crushed any time…” Cooper Ssali said.

Mowzey was born on January 25, 1983. Studied at Kibuye Primary School, Lake View Wanyange and Kiira College Butiki before joining Makerere University to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Community Psychology.

Before Passing on, Radio had shared stage with South Africa’s P J Powers among other artists, local and international.
