MOSES SSEKIBOGO: 1985 - 2018
KAMPALA - The mother of fallen music star Moses Ssekibogo, better known as Mowzey Radio, has described him as a "humble and talented son" after news of his death emerged on Thursday.
Radio, 33, breathed his last at Case Hospital in Kampala, where he had been hospitalised for more than one week following an attack at a bar in Entebbe.
News of his death has shocked the nation, and beyond, as tributes continue to flow for the music icon.
His mother, Jane Kasubo, is among the thousands of people, including President Yoweri Museveni, that have paid glowing tribute to Radio.
"My son has been everything to me. He always gave me even the little he had. Mowzey Radio always took care of his sisters," she said.
"However much others knew him as a chaotic man, I knew him as a simple, humble and talented son," Kasubo said.
"My son paid school fees for one of his sisters until she graduated recently. He had very many friends. I am left with nothing."
On Friday last week, Kasubo told a press conference that her son had been taken off life support and that some bad people" had been circulating "wrong information" about her son's life.
"My son has been on breathing with the help of machines, but now he can breathe on his own," she said at the time.
Radio, who sang alongside Douglas Mayanja, aka Weasel in the Goodlyfe Crew, underwent surgery at Case Hospital a day after being attacked at a bar in Entebbe.
On day of his death, music promoter Balaam Barugahare told a press conference that Police had ordered that the musician's body be taken to City Mortuary for a post mortem examination.
Results from the autopsy would held established the actual cause of Radio's death as well as help in efforts to bring his attackers to book.
Police has since the Janaury 22 night attack made arrests, including the of the manager of De Bar.
