Well known musician Mowzey Radio, 33, breathed his last at Case Hospital in Kampala on Thursday morning. His passing comes days since Light the Wold Church – Nansana, also known as Worship House, announced a special prayer service for the singer, slated for 4th February 2018.
“Yes, Radio is gone. He died at 6:00am this morning. They are preparing to transfer his body to Mulago Hospital.” Music promoter and Radio’s managers Balaam Barugahara told a State linked new daily.
Mowzey, who released a full gospel album last year labeled ‘Kilimanjaro’, was over the last 10 days admitted to Case Hospital in Kampala following injuries he sustained after an attack at a bar in Entebbe.
The altercation left him with serious head injuries that necessitated a brain surgery, the Case Hospital management said.
His death caught the attention of the President, Yoweri Museveni who took to social media saying: “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. He was a talented young person with a great future ahead of him. May he rest in peace,”
“Gone too soon my brother, Can’t imagine Uganda without Mowzey Radio. May the Lord comfort friends and the family,” Pr Bugembe said.
“Very sad and unfortunate to hear of the untimely death of Moze Radio. This talented young man has been reaching out to God of late, I also heard that he produced a full gospel album that didn’t get airplay last year. May the Lord comfort his family, immediate friends, and fans,” gospel singer Ashley Wandera said.
At the release of Moze’s first single off his full Gospel album produced by Eli Arkis, Goodlyfe and Swangz Avenue last year, Gospel musician Minista Sami K, who doubles as Founder of the annual Praise City Gathering narrated how the main stream singer is “in search for God.”
“The album is amazing. I almost cried through listening to it. I saw the pain and hurt he was going through and his hunger for God,” he said.
This morning, Minista Sami k mourned the deceased revealing how he [Mowzey] taught him insights on song writing.
“You reminded me to always love God’s people and constantly told me every time we fellowshipped that God loves his people and that the gift of music he gave us was to bless his people. Thank you for the friend and brother you became. Words fail me but I’ll hold the memories so dear,” Sami k said.
