Tributes have been pouring in for one of East Africa’s most popular musicians, Mowzey Radio, who has died aged 33 after a reported bar brawl.

Radio, real name Moses Ssekibogo, died just hours after Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni donated $8,300 (£5,800) towards his medical bills.

The Afrobeats star was being treated in hospital for head injuries he sustained in the alleged brawl 10 days ago.

Five people have been arrested in connection with the incident so far.

According to Uganda’s Daily Monitor newspaper, the singer was allegedly beaten into a coma at a popular hangout spot in Entebbe town, south of the capital Kampala.

He had been in hospital ever since, although his management had stressed his condition was improving.

However, at 06:00 local time (03:00 GMT) on Thursday, the singer, who made up one half of duo Radio & Weasel, lost his fight for life.

Within hours of his death, the announcement had thousands of responses from people paying their respects to the musician, while photos show a large group of mourners gathering outside the Kampala hospital where he died.

President Museveni was among those to pay tribute to the singer, who was among the artists who contributed to a song in support of the politician during the 2016 elections.

Radio’s mother Jane Kasubo said her son had been “everything” to her, and his death had left her “with nothing”.

“He always gave me even the little he had. Mowzey Radio always took care of his sisters,” she told reporters who gathered after his death, according to New Vision newspaper.

“However much others knew him as a chaotic man, I knew him as a simple, humble and talented son.

“My son paid school fees for one of his sisters until she graduated recently. He had very many friends. I am left with nothing.”

Radio first steps into the spotlight came as a backing singer for Joseph Mayanja – better known to his fans as Jose Chameleone.

But in 2008, Radio split with Chameleone, leaving to form the Goodlyfe Crew with Douglas Mayanja, the younger brother of the famed singer, before creating their own duo.

Radio’s funeral is due to take place on Saturday. (BBC)
