East Africa Popular Musician, Radio is dead



East Africa’s most popular musician, Mowzey Radio has died, aged 33.

Radio 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 a brawl 10 days ago.

According to Nairobi news, the singer was allegedly beaten into a coma at a popular hang out spot in Entebbe town, south of the capital Kampala.

He had been in hospital ever since, but gave up the ghost at 06:00 local time (03:00 GMT) on Thursday.

Music Legend Tuface Idibia expressed sadness at the news of his death.

On his Instagram page, he wrote “so sad to hear about your death. RIP Radio, my condolences to his family and East Africa.‎”
