The ceremony was presided over by IGP Gen. Kale Kayihura who commended the Operation Wealth Creation coordinators for using musicians to deliver the message of wealth creation to the masses. He noted that through music the message will easily reach the common man and that this project will be instrumental in mitigating criminal activity as more youth will now have work to occupy them.

The Kadongo Kamu competition which was launched in October saw Kadongo Kamu singers put their brains to work aiming to compose a compelling song that would  inspire Ugandans to embrace agriculture.

Operation Wealth Creation is coordinated by Gen. Salim Saleh and aims at mobilizing the masses to engage in commercial agricultural activities to boost their household incomes for poverty eradication and sustainable wealth creation.

Weasel has moved on regardless, recording music as one man band and doing some collabos with fellow artists like King Saha, though he still has not been completely the same person since his music partner and ‘brother’ passed.

He recently intimated to Adelle on Kiss fm Kenya that it was really hard losing Radio. He stopped hanging out in clubs for a while because he could not bare listening to the music they had made together since it brought back very many memories that hurt him.

He also regrets ignoring some of his fallen friend’s phone calls, and leaving him without communicating his whereabouts which has taught him to treasure friendship even more. Weasel also says that Radio’s death helped unite artists in Uganda.

Weasel who is currently in Kenya recording a new season of Coke studio plans to do a special tribute to Radio on the show.

Weasel added that Radio’s death unified Ugandan artistes who had been beefing.

“When Radio was alive, artistes were fighting each other. But when he died, they all tried to come together and they no longer fight because most of them realised the importance of being united. That was a positive thing that happened,” he said.

One highlight that puts a smile on his face when he remembers Radio is when they received their first payment of USh1 million after their first hit song, ‘Nakudata’.

Weasel also revealed that he will pay a tribute to Radio with other singers on Coke Studio 2019.

“It is my second time to be on Coke Studio. This time teaming up with other artistes and paying tribute to the fallen soldiers like Radio and other stars,” he said.

He is also working on a new album that has 15 songs, as well as Radio’s album, which he left unfinished.
