Today, fallen singer, Moses Ssekibogo alias Mowzey Radio was laid to rest in Nakawuku, on Kampala-Entebbe road.

Commotion rocked the burial place for the loved vocalist leaving some people with injuries.

The commotion started when money was thrown into the grave. Some of the mourners tried to snatch the money which was being thrown.

At this point police officers tried to contain the situation but some were beaten by unknown goons.

One Police officer with a gun was beaten to a point that he couldn’t tell what was going on and he fainted.

On rising from the ground, the police officer picked his gun, staggered and supported himself on a motorcycle which had been parked nearby.

Mourners run in all directions trampling on others leaving some injured.

What also looked like the notorious Kifeesi gang swang into action beating up unsuspecting mourners and stealing their belongings including wallets and phones among others.

The chaos went on for some time till people scattered in different directions before calm was restored.

Mowzey who died in the early morning hours of 1st February 2018 has left many in tears. Following his death at Case Hospital in Kampala, his body was taken to the city mortuary for postmortem on the same day. He was then taken to his home at Neverland Makindye for Vigil. The next day Mass was held at Rubaga Cathedral and Radio’s body was taken to Kololo Independence grounds for public viewing. Here a whole night of a tribute concert took place as several artistes and fans paid respects to the fallen singer. He was laid to rest at his family home today.

We will keep you posted.

The Rwandan duo of Charly Na Nina have had reasonable success in the music industry,most of which they have to thank Uganda for.

I mean,they have made some great music with Ugandan artists like Geo Steady who worked with them on “Owooma.” ,Bebe Cool who featured them on his jam,”I do” among others .They have also worked with Ugandan producers and won hearts of the Ugandan music audience.

It seems Charlotte  Rulinda and Fatuma Muhoozi  have fallen in love with Uganda,plan to get married to the banana Republic and set up home here, which also makes sense since they have heard a few issues back home after recently parting ways with their manager.

The two have reportedly been living in Makindye, Kampala for the better part of this year and  are working on more music in Uganda.

Former Blu 3 member and self proclaimed dance hall queen ,Cindy Sanyu has come out to critic some areas of the current music industry saying that people who cannot sing are getting massive airplay only because their pockets are heavy.

She says it is not about talent anymore unlike back in the day where musicians had to work so hard to earn their place at the top of the music industry in Uganda.

“Unlike before, in the current music industry anyone can sing as long as they have money to pay for airplay. It’s no longer about talent. These days It’s easy to find a musician who can’t sing (live), can’t write or play any instrument but when their music is at the top. All one does is to pay for airplay,”she said.

“We had to compete against the likes of Juliana Kanyomozi, Irene Namubiru among others to earn our respect. But not anymore. Music is now about paying for airplay…not talent anymore.”
