Radio is a legend that never dies, Kenyan singer Jaguar tells Weasel

Mowzey Radio

Kenyan singer Charles Njagua Kanyi, better known by his stage name Jaguar, has labelled the late Mowzey Radio as a legend and a great music icon.

A musician, entrepreneur, politician and philanthropist, Jaguar too comes from humble origins.

The artiste who doubles as a Member Parliament called Saturday a sad day for East Africa and fans across the region.

“I want to extend my condolences to the family and friends of Mowzey. Today is a sad day for Africa, we have lost a beloved music icon and a legend.”

Jaguar said he has seen people on social media say Weasel without Radio, there is no Goodlyfe.

“I want to tell you that this is a new beginning and the music you did with Radio will never die.”

On his part, Weasel [real names Douglas Mayanja] said he has been working with Radio the better part of their youth.

“We have walked this journey together, but it is so sad, he wasn’t even able to bid me farewell.”

Weasel’s mother too joined the rest of the mourners at Radio’s burial ceremony at his ancestral home in Kaga, Nakawuka.

“Thank you all for coming for my brother’s burial, thanks for the love,” a heartbroken Weasel said.

Ugandan songbird, Juliana Kanyomozi, recalled how Radio wrote for her a lot of great music.

“Radio, you told us not to weep but please forgive us when we do.”

She added: “You said we don’t cry, we are sorry we will cry. My condolences to mummy, I have gone through the same, God will be by your side.”
