KAMPALA - It was mayhem Monday morning when police stormed Goodlyfe singer Mowzey Radio’s home in Kizungu-Makindye to arrest him following a bar brawl.

The accounts of what had transpired Sunday night are varying, but what is factual is that the singer and his crew had been drinking at Acacia Avenue based Casablanca bar when all hell broke loose.

Witnesses say the brawl was sparked off by a member of Team No Sleep which is comprised of breakaway Leone Island crew member AK47, his elder brother Pallaso, Sheebah Kalungi and King Saha of the Mulirwana hit.

One of Radio’s hangers-on is said to have provoked AK47’s group saying without Goodlyfe who featured Pallaso in their Amaaso hit, he would be a nobody. On hearing this AK47 speed dialed his brother who was not in the bar at the time.

On arrival and after a debrief of what had transpired, Pallaso headed straight for Goodlyfe’s table and punched Radio flat out. A bar brawl broke out prompting management to call police to intervene.
