Gulu mourns Mowzey Radio
Geoffrey Komakech who has hosted the artiste for close to a decade described him as a mentor saying, "I feel very bad about what has happened to him, he was my friend, to be sincere Radio was a friendly guy, a mentor who liked everyone". 
 
Komakech commonly known as Jeff Amazing worked with Radio under his company Amazing Events, and he was at a loss of words, saying Mowzey Radio was a person who could give you anything to anyone.
 
Mowzey Radio in company of several artists last performed in Gulu during the Christmas festive season   last year. He also collaborated with artists across the country.
 
Paplo Man who has a new song featuring Mowzey Radio, says their song was not yet complete. "He inspired me musically, and I have performed with him in many places such as Soroti, Paidha, Nebbi, Kitgum, and recently at Smiling Panda in Gulu," he said.
