Reports have emerged over how Ugandan singer Mowzey Radio ended up in a coma after a night out.
His management posted the following statement.
“It is with sadness that we confirm the circulating rumors regarding an incident involving Moses Ssekibogo (Radio) on Monday, 22. January 2018.
The facts are as follows:
Police have arrested and are holding in custody one suspect, and are currently searching for his accomplice. The arrested man is Egesa George, owner of The Bar, Entebbe.

Between 9pm and 9:30pm on Monday night, Moses was subjected to a very serious and unprovoked assault by an employee or associate of Egesa George. There had been an exchange of words, and
Moses was exiting the bar to return to Kampala when the as-yet-unidentified assailant viciously attacked him. This resulted in a severe brain injury that required urgent medical attention.
Moses was taken to Emmanuel Clinic, Entebbe Road, then transferred by ambulance to Nsambya Hospital and finally transferred by ambulance to Case Hospital, Buganda Road where it was decided that he would undergo emergency brain surgery. His surgery took place between 2:30am and 5:30am of 23. January 2018.
Case Hospital will not be releasing any details of his care to the press.
The full extent of Moses injuries is not yet clear. Contrary to gossip, he is alive and in a stable, comfortable condition within the Intensive Care Unit.
As his condition improves, the management of Radio and Weasel may make a further announcement.
Our legal advisers can confirm that they will be pursuing charges of attempted murder against the accused.
The family of Moses Ssekibogo are attending to him at the hospital, they appreciate all thoughts.”
Here are some reactions from Mowzey Radio’s fans.
