Things are not going so well with celebrity couple Moze Radio and Lillian Mbabazi. Pals to the couple have intimated to us that their relationship is hanging by the thread. Reason: the green-eyed monster!
We have learnt that former Blu3 singer Lilian is sad after her baby daddy Radio threatened to throw her out of their Makindye home if she continues acting jealously. Apparently, the songstress keeps provoking Radio's other zungu babe Kellen, threatening her and telling her to go back to her country and leave Radio alone.
This has not gone well with Goodlyfe singer who has sounded several warnings to the Vitamin singer, Lillian. This tension has gotten ion the way of the couples looming introduction in Rwanda that Lillian has been planning.

Sometime back rumour going around was that Goodlyfe Crew singers Moze Radio and Weasel TV were not on talking terms. The speculation stemmed from that fact that Moze had held a party at their Makindye based house, invited, invited some of his friends for goat roasting and beers but Weasal was conspicuously missing.
In fact as a matter of fact he was holed up in the studio the whole day and never attended. Now the latest is that their bitterness has spiraled into a fist fight. Sources have reliably informed us that the two singers punched each other at the home they share last Thursday night.
Apparently, Moze left other group members in Club and went home. But when Weasel and other members returned at around 5:00am, they found Radio seated in the compound seeping his Red Label.
A few minutes later he grabbed Weasal by the neck and the two started punching and kicking each other. They were broken apart by their manager Jeff. By press time we couldn't fully establish what really made them fight.
However, this is the second time the two are going physical. Is the group finally disintegrating? Watch this space?

Just when we thought the Goodlyfe Boys were out of trouble, Radio has again thumped a Sudanese gal to coma at Casablanca on Acacia Avenue in the wee hours of Friday morning. The poor gal who was, was in the company of Bad Black, was sent by Black to deliver a bottle of Black Label to the boys' table got a beating of a lifetime for insulting the duo.
The gal who told Radio to his face that Goodlyfe was broke and drove cheap cars was later saved by the bouncers of the club who threw Radio out in order to save the poor gal's life.

Troublesome Goodlyfe Crew guys; Weasel and Radio together with their gang have been ordered to pay damages to Club Rouge. The whole saga started when crew members destroyed property after a fight breaking glasses worth 500k.
They were later banned from the Club. But shockingly they showed up again last Wednesday for the Bad Black party and club boss Spear Abowe told them they could only access the place after they paid up the damages they caused.
Wen they realised that the guy was serious, they stormed off angrily hurling insults at him and the bouncers.

Singing duo Mose Radio and Weasel TV might be set for the dock following threats from Bashir Lukyamuzi. Bashir claims that they have refused to clear him after he made their 'Rwakitokula' song.
Although the pair cleared part of the money, Bashir is still demanding for the last installment. The video was shot at a staggering Shs 3.5m but only half of the money was paid.
The agreement was that they clear the balance after one month but now about four months have passed and they are not showing any signs of paying. In addition to dragging them to court, he plans to boycott shooting any more videos until his debt of Shs 1.9m is cleared.

The Goodlyfe are back in the trouble circles and this time round they want wannabie singer, Tuff B's balls. We are told that the Goodlyfe boys; Weasel and Radio are accusing Tuff B of duplicating their hit song Nyambura to come up with a new version called 'Nyambuna'.
We were told; we were told; "They might deal with him on a personal basis or take him to court." Music pundits claim Tuff B's song sounds almost like the original Goodlyfe Crew's Nyambura hit. But those who know all the details claim the boyz after Tuff B because he is Bebe Cool's close pal

Uganda's Music Industry is fast growing with many artistes coming on board everyday. Artistes are known to be spendthrifts catapulted to fame through their superstar lifestyles. The big artistes like Jose Chamelone, Bobi Wine, Bebe Cool, Juliana Kanyomozi and Iryn Namubiru who strengthened the music Industry have minted the dime to live the dream.
Despite the influx of new talent, these chaps still earn big to maintain the status quo. The new kids on the block are also doing well financially. The old and new artistes are all minting dime from live performances at concerts, unplugging sessions in various bars and clubs, signing long term contracts with corporate companies and performing at social gatherings.
All their earnings are tax free. OMG team unveils how artistes are accumulating dime to build houses, drive posh cars, guzzle the bitter and shaft hot things.
Juliana Kanyomozi - She's an early bird. She does not have many new songs to her name but but Juliana is a brand. The sexy voiced singer charges Shs3m for upcountry shows. For city shows, book her slot if you can afford Shs2m. She also mints dime from performing at corporate and social events.
Ragga Dee - This veteran singer and probably the richest musician cannot perform at the show for less than Shs2m. He earns mainly through jingles from companies like NBL.
Goodlyfe - Moze Radio and Weasel TV are steadily making their weight known on the music scene. They have organised many album launches which they sell to Kibo Enterprises in advance. For example, they sold 'Ngenda Mumaso' launch at Shs39m. They also ask for Shs 4m for shows.
Grace Nakimera - She is fairly new in the industry but she undoubtedly billed as one of the most expensive artistes. Grace will not perform at your function unless you fork out Shs 3m. She prefers to perform at corporate events I guess because she she hates the hassle of showbiz promoters. Grace also earns big from album ..sorry...song launches.
Mariam Ndagire - She's a selective performer and charges Shs2m. However, exceptions are made for functions of frinds and relatives who she charges paltry 800k. She also makes loads of dime through play and script writing, lecturing and acting.
Desire Luzinda - Although her music is not known by many, curvy Luzinda's charges are high. She asks for Shs 3m. She performs mostly at private functions and house parties for the wealthy.

There is bad blood reportedly boiling between rapper Keko Town and former Blu3 Singer Lillian Mbabazi. All this is because of pencil thimn Moze Radio's whooper. Lillian accuses Keko of bonking Radio.
The extent to which this accusation is true is not yet known. What is real though is that Lillian and Radio are an item. And to seal it off, they had a baby boy late last year.

The BEEF between Rabadaba and Goodlyfe Crew boyz, Weasel and Radio is starting to gel. The hottest rumour doing rounds in the studios is that fast fading Lugaflow singer, Rabadaba has hit studios to out a hit that attacks the former Leone Island singing pair.
We hear the song is titled 'No Chorus'. Goodlyfe Crew and Rabadaba fell out badly and they no longer see eye to eye. In fact they no longer perform their hit collabo 'Ability' together.
Rabadaba accuses Weasel and Radio of disrespect while they in turn accuse the 'Bwekiri' singer of growing wings yet they partly helped him to be where he is now. When news landed in at their Makindye base, Goodlyfe Boyz vowed; "He will be digging his own grave."

Both Leone Island Crew President Jose Chameleone and arch nemesis the Goodlyfe Crew Singers need to either curb on their fighting instincts or else they visit a rehab centre. These singers are seriously getting synonymous with trouble.
It seems like they have made kicking lamps out of their lives a day time job. Now the latest trouble between the two parties was when the Basiima Ogenze star knocked arch rival , Moze Radio's car into pieces.
We are told while at Anderita Beach in Entebbe last Sunday, Weasel in the company of his roguish Goodlyfe gang attacked Chameleone and started hurling insults at him with words like 'Omusajja Agenda' translated as 'the man is about to die'
In fact we are told that at one time their arrogant and self-important manager, Jeff (who knows him) said that; "We vow to smash every tiny fly that tries to interfere with our lives and to discipline our elder brother until he repents."
Now, apparently the no nonsense and trouble hungry Chameleone retaliated by smashing Radio's Golf car registration number UAN 514 T on the side to the extent that its doors couldn't open again.
This happened as he was leaving Anderita. We are told Radio had to call in a breakdown to remove and take it to their home in Makindye. He has vowed to revenge, Watch this space!

Two years ago, Goodlyfe duo Mose Radio and Weasel TV were banned from Ange Noir after their scuffle with one of the Club's Deejays. But last Thursday, that ban was lifted and the boys can hit the club again.
This seemed to have annoyed rather than please their nemesis Jose Chameleone. The crew who were in the company of Jeff, Allan and Symo of Hi Table, stormed the club at 1:00am after their performance at Sizzaman's unplugged show in Club Silk.
They went straight to the DJ Box and Chameleone who was next to the DJ box immediately shifted to one of the bar corners with his crew. They grabbed the mics and started singing their famous hits of Talk-Talk, Mr. DJ, and Heart Attack as they screamed on top of their voices saying 'Omusajja Agenda' literary translated as the man is going.
Chameleone remained hiding as his rival DJ Michael also grabbed the microphone to sing. The now humbled Bayuda singer remained in the corner sipping his liqour praying hard that these boys could leave the club.
And since he couldn't resist the pressure they they were putting on him, he decided to get out of the club with his boys.

Moze Radio and Weasel TV have attacked Dr. Jose Chameleone in their latest song dubbed 'Lwaki Tokula'. The song was released days after Chameleone and his Leone Island gang beat up his young brother, Weasel in Club Rouge.
This inspired the Goodlyfe boys into recording the song. The video will be released any time soon. Chameleone insists he did that to discipline him.

We are finally into the new year but to the Goodlyfe singers, it hasn't come with new things. The fact that they are involved in so many fights is nowadays a non issue because we have long come to consider that as part of their lives.
But trying to fight the no nonsense Rwandese cops is a terrible mistake which one can learn the hard way. Ask the Goodlyfe guys now and they will tell you they will never repeat it.
Well, the latest from Rwandese Capital Kigali is that Moze Radio and Weasel TV were engaged in a serious fight last weekend with cops while on a New Years tour in the land of Kagame.
We are told the singers had gone to attend the East African party. But thinking they were the stars of the show, they decided to hit the stage late and the law in Rwanda says events are not supposed to go past midnight.
When the police tried to stop the show, the big headed boys started fighting them. A source in Kigali told us, "It was past midnight when they were told to stop their performances. But they refused and a scuffle later ensued between them and police."
We hear in the scuffle their manager sustained a broken nose and he is still nursing wounds. They were later detained for hours before being released and told to leave Kigali within one hour.

If you thought expulsions ended in school then the Effendy's bosses will prove you wrong. We have reliably learnt that three weeks back, this white boss at the bar wrote a letter to the boys, saying were drinking free booze at his bar and each day that passed, more fellows joined the group which pissed him off.
We hear this was because his accounting books were never balancing and customers had reduced in number, yet whenever he asked the bar man where the booze went, he would always reply, "Goodlyfe Crew".
Snoops say the fella wants to replace them with Chameleone, who is still turning down the invitation.

We at the Red Pepper love, our dear readers so much. Though we love you equally, we couldn't afford a christmas gift for each one of you. However, it is only fair that the following celebs don't go bare-handed.
Bobi Wine - The president of Uganja Republic is one guy who can't live without the weed. Don't be fooled by his "depot nazigala" song, that's wolokoso. We recommend that he should spend this festive season in a rehab center.
Meg Lusembo - Just like Desire, this city glamour gal who is famous for dating pensioners should get a permanent bonkmate. It's the same gift that we offer former Miss Uganda, Salma Nassanga.
Hannington BBA - Commonly known as smellington, we would have preferred to give him a deodorant but we think our BBA 5 flop needs a book on anger management. If he had one on the house he could have probably stayed longer in the house instead of fighting with a lady.
Desire Luzinda - Ha! For the queen of hips , we preferred an eligible bachelor to walk her down tha aisle. (We have several hunks at the Red Pepper who' d anything, absolutely anything, to just do that). That would be the best ever Christmas gift for her.
Straka Mwezi - And to our favourite TV personality, we dedicate to her a cheque for an extreme make over. That's because she's going to have a lot of show to work on next year.
Seanice Kacungira - As a radio presenter, she has gained fame but has failed to gain one thing: weight. Our Christmas gift to her is a book with tips to gain weight.
Weasel and Radio - We know that it is hard for their whoopers to rest. Not with the fame has come along with career. We buy them a carton of condoms.

Losing has never been fun at all. But in this world we have gracious losers and sour losers. Goodlyfe Crew member cried like a baby after they badly lost out during the just concluded MAMA awards that were held in Lagos, Nigeria.
One of our snoops who travelled to with the crew told us, "After being rejected in the "Best Group Category" in the MAMA awards last Saturday, the boys were in no mood for shots at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
While Radio tried to force a smile, Weasel who was still in tears wearing a gloomy face told fans off. He told them "Mwe temunkuba bifananyi" literally translated as "Don't take my shots." The Goodlyfe Crew lost out to Nigerian trio P-Square in the Best Group Award.

Goodlyfe Crew's Moze Radio has been earmarked as one of the few privileged Ugandan men who sleep with two hot women and a kid on one bed. Sources within the Goodlyfe Crew Makindye based 'Neverland' home are behind this revelation.
This bizzare situation started when former Blu3 singer decided to shift from her rented muzigo and officially started staying with the father of her kid. Shockingly the 'Ngenda Mu Maaso' singer already had another white babe he had been docking.
When Lillian started demanding that she vacates Moze's bed so that she can occupy it, the defiant and stubborn chic told off saying she was going nowhere. A source told us, "She(Moze's white chic) assured Lillian that the only difference between them was that she (Lillian) had given birth while she hadn't."
In fact we are told they later agreed to work together to please their husband since no one was willing to let go of Moze's whopper. They nowadays spend the whole day drinking booze and eating pork ribs together while in the night they get to sandwich their man with their warmth.

Heartaches happen to everyone. Whether we are celebrities or regularly broke, famous or not, we still encounter cheaters, insecure psychos and sexy lovers that we can't stand. The only difference is that celebrity relationships usually unfold for the world to see.
The break ups are delicious slices of gossip that we can't ignore. Just peep at this list of celebrities that were de-famed by friends as result of fame.
Juliana and Iryn -The former singing due of I-Jay can only exchange greetings. The two tried to be on top of each other after their celebrity status rose but it only led to a bitter split. Their efforts to reconcile have been fruitless.
Bebe Cool and Bobi Wine - Theirs is getting unbearable. The former buddies are on a 'weight' war of who is bigger than the other. Their silly accusations range from my wife is hotter than yours, 'my music is better than yours' such kind of nonsense.
They have even gone on to exchanging blows all in the name of fame. We don't see any reconciliation in the near future but we hope it will one day come.
Seanice and Melanie - The two senior radio presenters have been at war ever since they came into the limelight, fighting the 'I' better than you battle. When Seanice left for Nairobi. Melanie got some relief but since her return, the feud has intensified, especially after she replaced Melanie on the morning breakfast show.
Chameleone and Goodlyfe - Self proclaimed singing doctor, Jose Chameleone, was the president of Weasel and Radio when they were still members of the Leone Island Crew. But they are now sworn enemies yet Chamili and Weasel are blood brothers.
When Goodlyfe saw their fame rising each passing day, they saw no reason of being under big brother. They formed their own group and since then , fighting abusive songs have been their order of the day.
Obsession and HB Toxic - They were in the same group but as intrigue and accusations grew with their fame, Brenda and Helen quit the group and formed the HB Toxic. What former workmates and friends can only afford to say now is a simple 'Hi' and nothing else.

Local stars Moze Radio and Weasel TV have been nominated in the 2010 MTV Africa Awards with Zain(MAMA). The two stars were nominated in the best Group category along side P-Square (Nigeria), Teargas (South Africa) and P-Unit (Kenya).
The nominees for the annual poll of young African's music tastes were announced on Monday at a star-studded celebration at De Marquee, Lagos, Nigeria. It was attended by artistes, nominees, celebrities and VIPs including 2Face, Sasha and Mo Cheddah.
Nigerian artistes scored an impressive 13 nominations for duo P-Square (Artiste of the Year, Best Group and Best Video), and two nominations each for MAMA 2009 winner 2FACE (Best Male, Artiste of the Year), Wande Coal (Best Anglophone, Best Male) and Banky W (Song of the year, Best Video).
Nigerian female artistes also rated well with Best female nods for Neka and Sasha, and a nomination as Brand: New artiste for Mo Cheddah. D'Banj, a four time MAMA winner, received yet another nomination for Song of the Year for "Fall in Love". Uganda only has Radio and Weasel.

It was booze all through at Goodlyfe's Makindye Neverland home as singer Moze Radio threw a bash to celebrate the birth of his son with fellow singer Lillian Mbabazi. We broke the story that Lillian gave birth to a baby boy when Moze Radio was in the US on a musical tour.
A few days after the birth, Radio and his singing partner Weasel returned. A close source told us that Radio threw the bash on Sunday for friends and close family. Radio publicly revealed the worst kept secret about Lilly's son.
Earlier we told of how Radio sent Lillian a message congratulating her upon successfully giving birth.

Lillian Mbabazi has finally told pals that her six day old son is fellow singer Moze Radio's. Ever since it emerged that she was pregnant, many fellas have been linked to her. Even Radio's close pal and fellow artiste Weasel TV had been linked.
Lately there were suggestions that it was a mzungu who impregnated her, but earlier this week, she confessed to a few pals that Radio is the one. As soon as she gave birth on Saturday, Radio who is currently in the United States, sent her a congratulatory text message.
It read: "Congs. He will a be a great son. C U soon Lilly." The baby was delivered by caesarian section. Both mum and baby are in fine health.

Mother of Wars:
Without a doubt Ugandan artistes have taken their beef and fighting to another level. The latest from the land of Obama is that they held their shows on the same day but in venues near each other.
Our Washington based snoop told us, "There was chaos all over after the rival groups put up shows on the same date, at the same time and at venues adjacent to each other." Remember, the Goodlyfe were performing at the UNAA Convention where they had been invited by Ugandans living in the US while Chameleone and Bebe had been snubbed by the same UNAA guys.
"To get back at them, Jose paid his own ticket to the US and then decided to team up with young promoters Zink and Robert Kasule to put up a show on the same day the Goodlyfe boys were to perform." Our source added.
The shows took place last Saturday in Washington. We hear Moze and Radio couldn't believe Chameleone had just sabotaged their event. To make matters worse, the Bayuda singer teamed up with Bebe Cool who is in the US for an operation.
Now to give a clear picture of the situation, Imagine one group having a show at Kyadondo and a different one at KCC Grounds at Lugogo. We hear it was chaos in the US as Nkuba Kyeyo's couldn't decide where to go.
The two champs have since then been threatening each other. Meanwhile we have been informed that Moze Radio survived jail and deportation after he got into a fight with a lady. "After the show he was leaning he was leaning on her car and she politely told him to get off.
But all of a sudden he started abusing her; how her car is so cheap and how she was messing with a celeb." We hear he was sternly cautioned by police after he had begged and apologized to her.

From the look of things singers Moze Radio and Weasel TV might finally have the last laugh. The two fellas were snooped from Club Silk Royale on Saturday with two big Nkuba Kyeyo chics from South Africa.
The two we were told are named Jackie and Susan. Our snoop confirms Jackie belongs to Radio and Susan is Weasel's. All the night Weasel was sharing a glass with his new catch hand in hand as they looked each other in the eyes.
The four later stormed off in the blue cab to an unknown destination.

We don’t know whether Goodlyfe boys have run out of steam or there is something amiss with them. A snoop says these boys are fast losing it because last weekend, they run out of fuel on their way to Mutukula where they had gone for a show.
The looked a nuisance in their Ipsum while in Kyotera and to make matters worse, they were picking fuel from the petrol station using beer bottles. They had in their company two malnourished bazungu women with one of them appearing to be pregnant.
We really wonder what is happening to these boys who once tried to live a first paced life.
Saturday, 07 August 2010
Just in 2008, they won three Pam Awards with club banger NAKUDATA, winning Song of the year at the PAM Awards. Word on everyone's lips was that the boys had arrived with a swagger.
Ugandans embraced them the way the jesuits did to Jesus. For a moment, the sky appeared to be the limit for Douglas Mayanja aka Weasel TV and Moses Nakintigye aka Moze Radio. The boys who formerly plied their trade as singer Jose Chameleone back up singers had in a twinkle of an eye become men; celebrities; they were the hottest property on Uganda's music scene.
Everything they touched was turning gold from 2008 and 2009. They chumed out top hits after another from Nakudata, Zuena, Nyambura, Bread and Butter to duets like Ability with Rabadaba, potential with Zambia's Gen Ozzy and Where You are with Blu3 among other songs.
But since the turn of the year we have noted a downward trend in their musical graph, their performance price per show has lowered tremendously (they were recently paid Shs 1m at a show in Mbale; money they wouldn't take in their hey days) while their new songs are yet to win over their doubters.
Biff, Biff and More Biff
A saying goes "Be good to people on your way up the ladder because you are bound to meet them on your way down." Now the fact is, these boys have clashed with most guys in town.
From fights with their mentor Jose Chameleone(they baptised one of their dogs Chameleone recently) after they quit his Leone Island Crew; the never ending wars and battles with the Bebe Cool to top club Managers like AngeNoir CEO Charlie Lubega among many other top music promoters. They have clashed with them all.
At one point after their biff had gotten worse, they did a song 'Chidula' dissing Charlie; a thing that led to their music banned from ever being played at the club again(though Charlie later revised the punishment) while other clubs like Silk at one point had also put a ban on them ever entering because of the chaos they were causing.
Battles with Bebe
Their battles with Bebe Cool are well documented. To say it loud and clear their songs are based on fights with the Gagamel Crew owner. One music critic says: "The problem with the Goodlyfe is that most of their songs are talking about Bebe and his wife Zuena. You see people can take in such songs for a short time but over a long run they will get used to them and then you will eventually find there is nothing new to offer to your fans. That will signal your end to music.
Ego and Arrogance
There's no question that the boys are talented. But however much talented one is; discipline is paramount to success. And surely Moze and Radio's discipline leaves a lot to be desired.
The same audience that had embraced them now looks at them with contempt just a couple of years down the road. One fan wondered, why they don't respect fellow artistes they found in the industry. This is their number one downfall and it's the reason why most of their fans are fast running away.
Wednesday, 04 August 2010
A source tells us singers Jose Chameleone, Juliana Kanyomozi, Radio, Weasel and Bobi Wine are on the verge of signing a multi million shillings deal to compose a song for the Ministry of Finance.
Each artiste/group will compose a song of their own for the ministry's new campaign set to kick off before the end of the year. The singers are set to meet with finance officials and slap out deals where each artiste/group will pocket around Shs 25 million.

Preggie Lillian throws baby shower for pals at Bukoto based bar Cayenne but her Man Moze Radio is nowhere. This was on Saturday. Lillian pals were all in perfect mood as they partied with their mom to be pal all night long with pints and eats in plenty.
Blu3's Lillian has given music a break as she awaits the arrival of her first born with Radio. Meanwhile singer Radio and his music partner Weasel were in a show at Comprehensive Bar in Nateete. They recently returned from Kigali Rwanda where they had shows.
Monday, 19 July 2010
It is no more a secret that singer Moze Radio is dating both Lillian Mbabazi and glamour girl Faridah Kumba. In fact Blu3 singer Lillian is pregnant with Radio's kid. And pals tell us she has been using the pregnancy to tell Kumba to forget Radio.
Kumba has been doing whatever it takes to be close to Radio as no one else."She has always been camping at Radio's 'Neverland' Makindye home almost daily. She wants to be so close to Radio," a Goodlyfe insider told us.
But this has not been going so well with Lillian who also spends most of her time at Radio's crib. This is what is causing problems but Radio refuses to be drawn into this drama. Farida Kumba is a sister to ex miss Uganda Salma Nassanga.
During Blu3's Be Free concert last year, Kumba and Lillian were involved in a fight backstage. Watch This Space!

This will surely shock Weasel's brother elder brother Dr. Chameleone. Our snoops have learnt that the Goodlyfe duo of Mozey and Weasel have named one of their puppies 'Chamili' as dedication to the biggest rival Chameleone.
Word from our snoops has it that the randy boys have been closely watching their bitch since it was balloned by some stray dogs. We hear, ever since the bitch gave birth to a brood of puppies, the boys decided o give one the name, as a way of recalling Weasel's big brother Chameleone, whom he claims disowned him.
Snoops added that whenever they have a meal, Weasel specifically serves the puppy with bones and leftovers, adding that it reminds him much of his big brother. We've since learnt that another puppy is about to be named 'Cool' Watch This Space

They are referred to as celebs just because they are in Uganda. It is only in Uganda where we have celebs driving cheap Toyota’s of 1980’s or early 90s model. Meanwhile, those are the blessed ones because others are too broke to afford coins for Boda Boda’s.
The count down goes:
Their fast ride to fame made them instant ‘celebs.’ Their hit, Zuena, was replica of P-Square’s No-One Like You. They have successfully made more songs out of their endless feuds with fellow artistes. Then when they featured on Zambia’s General Ozzy’s potential, they thought it better to think along the same lines with Ability. And the killer of all was, Abatesi! For God’s sake, how, of all musicians to have ever graced this country, could these guys do a Chance Nalubega song?
This puts their creativity in question. Either they cause trouble to get themes for theirs dongs of duplicate some song from somewhere. Nuff said.
About four years ago when she appeared on the scene, she was only known as a daughter to an ageing musician. Now, Rachael is struggling with a bleak music career and unlike her mum whose kindergarten rhymes had a drop of humour, she has unsuccessfully penetrated the music scene. We hope she will use her name as the face of Pepsi to propel into another field where she’ll fit.
She became a ‘celeb’ because of her aah..er, Kandahar generosity! And perverted Ugandans have since then given her a position in society because she is out and about, prowling for the next celeb to lay. Celebrity status sometimes costs nothing as long as you utilize what God endowed you with. It’s just as simple as that.
Shamir? Shamir who? The guy owes his meager popularity to Desire Luzinda. Aah, that one! Well, he’s nowhere near the others mentioned, but he should have every reason to thank Desire. His Unplugged show at Silk Last Saturday proved him as another struggling fella who thinks that holding a mic on stage can turn himn into a ‘hit’ wonder in a country where the word celebrity carries no meaning. It ain’t an easy task, dude. Even Ugandans can at times eeerrr.. have taste.
He wouldn’t be on this list if Ugandans new the source of his income and out to rest the various questions about his wallet status. Otherwise, he’ll always be viewed as a broker who cracks a deal, appear to impress poor Ugandans and vanishes off the scene faster than someone bathing on a veranda before running broke.
For starters, we know that Wine is not a family name. He like many other new artistes couldn’t think of anything better to launch his career with. So he opted to use his brothers name to propel himself. Doesn’t he know that he need to toil rather than being referred to as Bobi Wine’s tot brother? Hope he won’t end up being a copycat, or worse still feud with the bad boy from Kamwokya over songs in the near future.

Just like how President Museveni has a biting 'dog' in Tamale Mirundi, Gagamel boss Bebe looks to be having his own 'dogs' to fight for him. Gagamel crew's Kiwoko boys a.k.a Eighton and Rainman are back with another song, Papaali, widely thought to be hitting at Bebe's arch rivals, Goodlyfe Crew's Moze and Weasel.
In the song, this gang talks about a group of people who go around showing off and undermining others. Their message is rather ironic as they go ahead to advise the unmentioned group to think twice, go slow with life, work hard and also use their eyes if they are to be more successful in life.
One local music critic adds: "There is no doubt about who these boys are referring to because in the same song, Eighton and Rainman are heard using words such as Ngenda Maaso, Bread and Butter yet these are the song titles for the Goodlyfe Crew"
It looks like the Kiwoko boys are making a career out of attacking the Goodlyfe Crew. We hope thos new song doesn't raise more biff dust between the two warring crews.

Ugandan Celebrities can not cease to surprise. Fresh info indicates that the latest embarrassing incident happened to none other than a Goodlyfe Crew member. Moze Radio is a wanted fella after he ran away from Club Silk without paying his bills. That on the March, 30 2010 during the campus nite, Radio ordered for drinks worth shs 70,000 for pals but never paid the bills.
We are told that on realising that the bill had accumulated and he didn’t have enough dime on him to clear it, he decided the only way to get out of such an embarrassing incident was to disappear.
But before he could run away the waiter was tipped off about his eminent escape and he followed the singer to the parking lot. Radio assured the poor boy that he will be clearing the bill the next day.
However we have now learnt that he has never paid up. The waiter in question adds “I’ts now clear that he could be dodging to pay the bill because he has since failed to turn up at the club. That means they will deduct my salary”

Photo: Juliana at Silk Events Launch
This Easter Season is certainly going to be a boring one musically with most of our artistes in Europe for shows. Goodlyfe alongside stunner Juliana Kanyomozi and Tanzania’s Ray C are already in Europe. They left on Wednesday and perfoemed in Norway on Thursday. On Good Friday they were in Brussels in Belgium and last night they performed in Sweden.
Tonight they will be in concert in Netherlands. They return on Tuesday. Meanwhile Talent 256 artists Michael Ross, HB Toxic and Toniks will join fellow artists in UK for an Easter Tour dubbed "The Battle of the New Skool".
The tour is organized by Sengo International Promotions. The shows will be at the newly refurbished famous Club 19 in London. The shows will take place on April 3,4,10 and 11th. Other Ugandan artistes to perform are Omulangira Ssuuna, Ziggy Dee, Aziz Azion, Cindy and Bella.

Goodlyfe stars Moze Radio and Weasel TV alongside promoter Bobkins Kibirige of Kibo Media are off to Zambia for singer General Ozzy’s latest album launch. General Ozzy is the singer Moze Radio and Weasel collaborated with for their song Potential. He is launching tonight.
Bobkins and the singers left for Zambia on Tuesday night for the show. They will be returning on Sunday.
We have also reliably learnt that Ozzy will in turn be coming to Kampala for the Radio and Weasel’s launch. The show bought by Bobkins will take place on May 14. It is expected to be the biggest show for the year.

Debt ridden GoodLyfe stars Moze Radio and Weasel TV have sold off one of the cars - a Toyota Land Cruiser to clear an outstanding debt, The car (UAJ 440E) maroon in colour was sold to a light skinned UK based Nkuba Kyeyo lady only identified as Charity.
She bought it a few weeks to singer Dr.Jose Chameleone's Basiima Ogenze album launch on Feb.19. It should be noted that late last year, the potential singers were arrested and appeared in Mengo Civil Court after they failed to clear a debt to a music promoter who had paid them to perform in Mbarara.
Now this latest development in the Goodlyfe camp will come as a big blow to the singers who have recently lost their fan base due to the constant brawls. Meanwhile, fresh reports indicate the relationship between Radio and Weasel is not so well. Tongues were sent wagging when Radio appeared alone on Monday at Kampala Rd based Hi Table for the Duo's Goodlyfe Nite. Watch This Space!

After the collapse of PAM Awards in Uganda, where the Goodlyfe crew was expected to sweep most of the awards last year, they have finally been rewarded. Reliable sources from Zambia reveal Moze Radio and Weasel TV(who were a no show in Zambia having been spotted at club silk, the same time they were supposed to be in Zambia for the awards) have scooped the award for the Zambia Foreign artists of the year 2009 for their potential song.
The Potential song which was a collabo with Gen Ozzy is a big hit in Zambia. They beat off stiff competition from Nigeria's P-Square, South African and Kenyan musicians. Surely, despite the short comings the Goodlyfe had a good 2009 and the year belonged to them.
Saturday, 27 February 2010
The Goodlyfe singing duo Mowzey Radio and Weasel snubbed Jose Chameleone's Basiim Ogenze Concert at KCC grounds Lugogo last Friday apparently because they were off to Zambia for the Amarula awards which were scheduled to take place the same night as Jose's concert.
It turns out this was a lie: they did not go to Zambia as they had assured their fans. On Wednesday they sent texts to a couple of people, some of them in the media which read as follows: "Goodlyfe are off to Zambia to grace the Amarula Awards and would like to inform the general public they won't perform on any show as the old artistes are saying..."
But there was nothing like a trip because that Friday night, they were spotted outside Industrial Area based Silk Club. Our snoops spotted them in the company of GNL Zamba Ha!
Friday, 26 February 2010
Word seeping in from Makindye is that Goodlyfe boys could be evicted from their new home in Makindye. The starts who recently moved from their Nyanama based house have failed to honour their agreement to pay six months up front before they could move in.
An insider intimated to our snoops that the Goodlyfe boys had pleaded with their landlord to let them pay one month (Shs 470,000) first then advance him the balance later before the end of the month but they have failed to do that and the landlord is threatening to throw them out. An eviction notice has been served to them.

On the weekend of Bebe Cool shooting, Moze Radio and Weasel TV went to Kigali for a show that later flopped but that did not stop Moze Radio from hooking up. Now the babe has been unearthed and above is the romping couple feeling lovey-dovey.
The juicy Nyarwanda babe is called Joseline Umuhire and she calls herself Jojo. The two hooked after the flopped Kigali show and later she took Weasel to meet her kid sister. Jojo was so excited that she wrote on her facebook wall: "I'm a bad girl! Goodlyfe meets bad gal-tough combination, don't you think?"

Friday, 05 February 2010
No doubt the duo have had a good time in 2009 but they might have to go on their knees to ask God for a miracle in 2010 for them to keep living a good life. They have been battling with court over unpaid debts, next they are wanted to make statements in connection to Bebe Cool's shooting and now the latest info we are receiving is that their Kigali was a complete flop.
Mowzey and Weasel got on stage very late at about 1:30am to the chagrin of revellers and on performing, they were simply booed. To make matters worse, there was a fight between Cobra the organiser and Skyz a local artist forcing police to stop the show.
Tuesday, 12 January 2010
Looks like Goodlyfe stars Moze Radio and Weasel TV's troubles will never end. Word reaching our desk indicates the star pair are now wanted at Jinja Road Police Station to answer charges of assault. this comes just days after Mengo Court had issued a warrant of arrest for the singers following their court snub and failure to clear a debt.
Now one Sula has reported an assault case at Jinja Road Police Station. Details as to where he was assaulted are still scanty. However, of late they have been cautious to avoid arrest.

Stars Moze Radio and weasel TV face arrest after they defy a court order to clear a debt of shs.6.8 million. The Goodlyfe stars had been given up to end of Tuesday(midnight) to clear the money they owed an event organizer, Marsta Entertainment, and the failed to pay.
They were hired to perform in Mbarara last year but failed to honour the agreement. After failing to recover the dime, Marsta Entertainment took the singers to court. Radio and Weasel were first arrested on Monday afternoon from, their new home in Makindye and produced in Mengo Magistrate's court presided over by Grade One magistrate Jolly Nkore.
However, they were released after depositing a cheque of Shs 2million. The magistrate then gave them up to the end of Tuesday afternoon. They never appeared and by Wednesday, they had not cleared their debt. Now we have learnt that court has ordered the singers' be committed to a civil prison.

It looks like loaded Ange Noir boss Charlie Lubega has finally forgiven rebel singers Moze Radio and Weasel TV. Their music, which had been banned from the Industrial area based club has finally been played.
On New year's, Ange Noir partiers got a taste of the Good Lyfe music as songs like Kuku for the first time played in the posh hangout. We hear the singers have secretly been asking Charlie to forgive them following their split.
Though their music has finally started playing there, it is not yet clear whether the pair's ban from the club has been lifted. Watch this Space!

It looks like in a few years every musician in Uganda will be having a beach. Snoops say that the duo sensational musicians Moze Radio and weasel TV have bought land at the Busabala beach which they are planning to turn into one of the trendiest beaches.
We are told the land is just a few kilometres away from Bobi Wine's One Love Beach. Also singer Ragga Dee who lost a cool 10m in a gambling game at Kampala Casino has his at Munyonyo.

The final results are out as Zain customers have chosen the five artistes to perform alongside R.Kelly in the 'I Believe' Concert set for January next year. Jose Chameleone has beaten all the musicians by far, garnering a massive 30 percent a head of Bebe Cool who got 16.7.
Others are Goodlyfe duo Moze Radio and Weasel, GNL and Peter Miles who will provide the local flavour at the show. Sadly, there is no Cindy, Grace Nakimera, Iryn Namubiru or even Lady Mariam. The top five will now go on to share the stage with international artiste, R.Kelly at the widely anticipated Zain "I Believe Concert"
Wednesday, 25 November 2009
Bebe Cool got a helping hand in his battles with on form singers Radio Moze and Weasel TV. Gagamel singers and Raiman have released a duet in which they attack Moze and Weasel and 'order' them to leave Bebe alone.
The song is titled Kiwoko. In the song Eigtonz and Raiman also want the Goodlyfe stars to leave Bebe Cool's wife alone. They also tell him them that being born from the Minister happened and it will never change and that not everybody is born from a minister.
Friday, 20 November 2009
The first signs of the sensational singing duo, Moze Radio and Weasel TV, splitting are showing. We are told the pair almost exchanged blows over the weekend in Southern Sudan after a disagreement. Our source tells us it all started after Radio boxed singer Diamond Oscar over a Dinka gal.
This, we are told, did not go well with Weasel who brutally attacked Radio. The pair exchanged hot words and were almost going for each others necks before they were separated by onlookers. The pair later made up but clearly there is trouble in Paradise for Good Lyfe. In fact, on Tuesday we spotted the good Lyfe Crew in Club Silk Royale, and Radio was not with them.
Friday, 30 October 2009
Snoops from UK have intimated to us that the local Goodlyfe duo of Weasel and Radio, who have been on a tour in the UK tried to beat the line at the Buckingham Palace trying to forge their way in for a tour of the Queen's palace, but were asked to go back into the line by the Royal Guards.
Mistakenly thinking that they were in Uganda, they arrogantly told the guards that they were Weasel and Radio the guards only laughed and politely ordered them to go back into the line. The embarrassed duo gave up the whole idea and headed back to bell groove where they have been staying since.
Sunday, 25 October 2009
The feud between these artistes will not come to an end soon. In the song titled"Ensimbi Etumpagulula" he refers to Ssali and Sentamu not to split because of dime but it becomes clear he is referring to Radio and Weasel when he brings in Jeff Kiwanuka the pairs manager.
Ssali is Bebe Cool's last name and Sentamu is Bobi Wine's last name but the mere fact that he brought in Jeff Kiwanuka, the song was aiming at Radio and Weasel. Knowing the Goodlyfe guys, they will soon hit the studio to record a counter track.
Thursday, 15 October 2009
Two UK based Ugandan promoters are feuding over Weasel TV and Moze Radio concerts. Ssengo and one other promoter are feuding over concerts slated for the 17th of this month. On that day, the artistes are supposed to perform at Ssengo's London based night spot Club 19 and also perform at Troxy for the African Music Awards (AMA).
What shocked Ssengo is the fact that he had paid for the duo's air tickets and will take care of the upkeep too. Mozey Radio, Weasel TV promised Ssengo they will only be performing at his show but the AMA Team in which the artistes are nominated in over four categories are being advertised as one of the performers for the AMA show.
Ssengo did contact the organizers of AMAs, they told him to back off.
Friday, 09 October 2009
Leone Island and Goodlyfe crews are again immersed in a bitter row over ex dream gal Rena. Very hot information reaching us shows that Singer Jose Chameleone is embroiled in sizzling beef with Moze and Radio over cute Rena.
We hear ever since Chameleone shot his Vumilia video with Rena, he has gone head to shower wealthy favors on her. He has even gone further to record a song with her, something that has not gone well with the Goodlyfe boys, who claim they are the ones who made Rena a celeb, with the help of UK based Ssengo.
Mbu nowadays Rena sells more than a hot cake and all singers want to have a bite at her candy.
Saturday, 19 September 2009
All is not well with the Goodlyfe crew members, our snoops can reveal. We have landed on sensitive information to the effect that the singing duo of Weasel and Radio were denied visas to the UK, where they were set to go shopping.
It is said that the guys who pose around that they posses land had no single title and that their bank balances and assurances of coming back didn't tally, sorry.
However, we hear the boys decided to console themselves by having a massive kinky orgy at their crib with numerous babes.
Friday, 04 September 2009
Goodlfe stars have for the first time come out and are denying any rift between them and money bags Charlie Lubega. Following reports that the singers fell out with Charlie Lubega who owns the number one night spot Ange Noir over a woman, the musicians have now come out and claim Charlie is one man they look up to and is actually their friend.
The stars say that their problem is not Charlie but Kato who manages the club and fellow artist Jose Chameleone. They accuse Chameleone of paying the club DJ's not to play their songs. They also added that they do not initiate fight as it is widely believed.
It is for this very reason that they do not move around with bouncers like other artistes.
Friday, 21 August 2009
Goodlyf star Moze Radio is is not just on form musically but also in bed too. Moze has balloned a babe only identified as Sheila a student at Uganda Bankers Institute(UBI). On noticing that she was pregnant, he abandoned her.
Close pals say she is struggling to raise money for antenatal care. Sheila has also dropped out of school as she prepares for single motherhood simply because the man responsible for the pregnancy ios careless.
Radio's partner Weasel TV has over 20 kids from every suburb in Kampala.
Sunday, 26 July 2009
Mowzey Radio was asked what his issue with Bebe Cool was in the Sunday Pepper and this is what he had to say: ''I respected Bebe so much until he broke that bond of respect when he slapped me in Club Silk. DJ Shiru played my song "Sweet Lady", I was happy, I went to the booth to thank him. On my way back Bebe Calls me, when I leaned to hear what he wanted to say, he slapped me hard across the face.''
''He apparently slapped me because it is the likes of us causing trouble between him and Chameleone. When I tried to inquire why he had to slap, they threw me out the club. Then at Palui Jose didn't want to go and so he asked us to go , that was around the time we had one big hit-Nakudata, when Bebe finished performing, they announced Weasel and Radio and the crowd started applauded.''
''Bebe waited for us when we were out in the parking lot, he reversed and almost knocked Weasel, he missed and hit the Golf that was behind, so we told him to learn to drive well. When he realised he could be reported by the owner of the car, he went to police and reported that Weasel and Radio had beaten him and vandalized his car, I was arrested and spent two days in prison, with Bebe telling me I would learn a lesson, It was Nyakaana who helped me get out."
However Mowzey Radio is also quick at saying there has not been any romance between him and Zuena. He adds that they are only friends and the friendship is brought about by Karitas who happens to be a good friend to both Zuena and Mowzey Radio.
Then one day at home, Mowzey Radio was singing Zuena jokingly and those who heard him mention Zuena in the lyrics assured him that if Bebe heard that song, he will be dead meat but because Bebe had broken the bond of respect ,we actually named the track Zuena, but that was not the original title, Mowzey added.

Goodlyf at Labonita
Goodlyf boys Moze Radio and Weasel TV of the Bread and Butter fame have bought themselves land worth 100million. The huge chunk of land is located near Victoria flowers that belongs to tycoon Gordon Wavamuno.
Last Thursday a deposit of 50% was made through Orient Bank and the balance is expected to be cleared in three months time. Looks like they are not just naughty boys. However the fans who attended the Theatre Labonita show last Saturday left the venue jeering at them saying they are pseudo artistes who use auto tunes(computer oriented tunes) to dupe the revellers.
On trying out a cappella of Nakutamani things just did not work out forcing one to say: "This is killing the music industry in Uganda, the musicians are going too digital and this is an appalling situation to the upcoming artistes who are likely to pick on the culture. This is very absurd!
How can the Goodlyfe crew rant back their fans? they should learn a lesson from Kanye West, Eminem and all other arrogant celebrities in the US who used to be shunned by their fans."
Thursday, 02 July 2009
They are the hottest item on the music scene currently but if they are not careful their blistering careers are headed for the dogs. The two had been banned by Ange Noir a few weeks back and now the latest is them being banned from Club Silk.
This follows the incident in which Radio tore a poster of DJ Shiru at Club Silk who is also the club's disc spinner. As if that was not enough their manager Jeff poured beer on Yasin who happens to be a right hand man to DJ Shiru outside the Club.
Management was left with no choice but to ban the singers and their manager Jeff with immediate effect. Whether the ban is temporary or permanent is not known but what is clear is that they have at least been banned from appearing at the club.
Thursday, 11 June 2009
The bad boys have outed a song attacking the number one night spot in the land. The song titled EKUDUULA comes up after Ange Noir management banned them from performing at the club when they beat up a club DJ.
They were requested to apologize in writing which they did not do only to retaliate in a song. The shooting for the EKUDUULA video will be done soon. Meanwhile DJ Shiru has parted ways with them sighting irreconcilable differences. The next time they met was at Club Silk where the two, Weasel and Radio beat up DJ Shiru.
Friday, 05 June 2009
Our stars are back to fighting and it looks Nastier than ever as Willy Byarabaha brings it down.
Just a week ago Singers DJ Michael and Dr.Jose Chameleone exchanged blows in Ange Noir with the former losing his shoes and allegedly shs 500,000/-. We all know singer Bebe Cool does not see eye to eye with Goodlyf crew Weasel and Radio.
It looks like the wars are coming back in the music industry. We take a look at the biggest wars in the industry of music at the moment.
Dr.Jose Chameleone Vs Dj Michael.
This is a fresh war! The pair have been buddies for a really long time though something has been boiling. Their fight, snoops can reliably tell, is over Cheri. Cheri is the owner of the two popular Kabalagala bars, Cafe Cheri and Cheri Royale. Jose is contracted to perform at Cafe Cheri every Monday while DJ Michael performs at Cafe Royale every Wednesday.
Because of this they both want favors from the owner Cheri. DJ Michael has opened a case against the Ba Yuda Star at Jinja Road Police Station following their Ange Noir Scuffle.
Blu3 Vs Cindy
Ever since Cindy quit Blu3, the gal group has struggled. Lillian and Jackie then recruited Mya Baganda but still, stuff hasn't been shifting pretty well. As a result their feud with Cindy, who at the moment is doing really well, the gals are at war.
Radio/Weasel Vs Bebe Cool
Mostly these have been involved in war of words but with Radio/Weasel hanging out with Bebe Cool's runaway wife at beaches these days, a brutal physical fight is about to erupt. And we bet someone will die. Recently while in Mbarara, Radio claimed Zuena left Bebe Cool because he was a beeper in bed. "She came to me because I can go for 90 minutes, " Bebe Cool won't definitely be happy and we understand.
Bebe Cool Vs Buchaman
Ever since Zuena left Bebe Cool, Buchaman has been doing nothing but to insult the Agenze star while on stage. This reached fever high during Smirnoff Street Jam. In turn Bebe said Buchaman's disability had taken its toll on his brains. Hmmmm!
Thursday, 21 May 2009
We sometime back told you of how the Radio and Weasel launch was bought by promoter Bobkins (Nyambura Launch Bought at 45Mn). The latest coming in is that the over 160 Million was collected from the two shows. This puts promoter Bobkins in things after buying it at 45Million and ending up with 163 Million.
The show at Hotel Africana raised 128 Million in gate collections while the Gaba show that sold 7,000 tickets of 5,000/- each shot to 35Million.VIP tickets at Hotel Africana were selling at 50,000/- while general tickets were going for 20,000/-
Over 50 million had been pumped in the show by sponsors like MTN, Club Beer and DFCU. The sponsorship package as well goes to the promoter and not the artistes.
Wednesday, 20 May 2009
On the day the Mowzey Radio and Weasel TV launched the Nyambura album, they had been arrested early in the day only to be bailed out by Ragga Dee at a bond of 1Mn shillings. The goodlyfe singers were arrested on Friday morning and produced in Mengo Chief Magistrate's court over a 700,000 shillings debt.
They had been paid 700,000/- as an advance for a perfomace in Kajjansi but the duo did not show up.

Artistes: Radio & Weasel
Venue: Hotel Africana
Today is definitely NYAMBURA DAY! The day when singers Moze Radio and Weasel TV prove their might in the local music industry. The day when the singers practically prove that the Chameleone/Bobi Wine and Bebe cool dominance is officially over. The good lyf singers are launching their second album Nyambura tonight at Hotel Africana in a concert music pundits predict could be bigger than mentor Dr. Jose Chameleone Ba Yuda concert in January.
It should be noted that the twosome (Radio and Weasel) were under the 'tutorship' of Chameleone for over five years. But one day they called it au revoir and a hit Nakudata was born. It was followed up by hit after hit...
Rise to Stardom
As already told, Moze and Weasel have been in the music business for long but under the shadows of their big boss Dr. Jose Chameleone. They quit his group sighting mistreatment and disrespect. Ever since they quit, they have been unbelievably successful with each song a hit. Since their Nakudata was voted song of the year in last year's PAM Awards, Radio and Weasel have realised hits like Nyambura, Zuena, Bread & Butter, Sitani, Where You are and most recently Number one among others.
It is on tonight at Hotel Africana for Shs 20,000, then tomorrow at Colline Hotel in Mukono and Ggaba Beach on Sunday. One thing is for sure, these guys won't disappoint. They have proved they can sing and tonight won't be any different. It is a must attend show tonight at Africana. The Nyambura album launch is sponsored by MTN and Club Beer.
Sunday, 26 April 2009
It’s a fact local music is going through its best times. I remember the days when Congolese Lingala with the likes of Koffi Olomide, Pepe Kale was selling like hot cakes in Uganda. Now that era is long gone. With our local music taking over. The like of Jose Chameoleone, Bebe Cool, Bobi Wine and Ragga Dee have spearheaded the revolution while up and coming artistes like GNL, Jamal, Moze and Radio, Weasel are bringing up a stiff competition and raising the standard of our music.
But like any growing industry our musicians are facing serious beef between them . Now this is where the point gets in. It is not a secret that most of these songs are inspired by the beef between artistes. Here we decode the hidden meaning in the songs.
Agenze-Bebe Cool One of the best songs of the new year, Bebe Cool’s Agenze as a way of pleading with Zu to return. And this has made it a huge success with fans.
Zuena - Weasel TV and Mose Radio
The Good Lyf Duo of Moze Radio and Weasel TV has always been known to have beef with Bebe Cool. The are always complaining that Bebe Cool doesn’t give them the respect they deserve. While they languished in Jinja road police cells after a scuffle with Bebe Cool at Club Palui, they wrote the song to get to him (Bebe).
SITANI –Weasel and Radio – This was their work to get back to Chameleone following his Ba Yuda hit. Weasel is a younger brother to Chameleone while Moze Radio was mentored by Jose to become who he is now. They later fell out and Chameleone sang Bayuda talking about the pair’s betrayal. They got back at him in Sitani song.
This song is one of Bobi’s all time best. The meaning behind the song is how people in Kampala are not genuine in whatever they are doing. From conning people of their money in dubious ways to ladies wearing fake hair claiming it’s theirs.
Mbikooye – Cindy
Though we are not sure if its really true, sources have revealed that Cindy was hitting back at the Blu3 babes, Jackie and Lillian who chased her out of the group. Then also those who were talking about her after her nude pictures leaked. The song has since become a hit.
Sigwe Onsimila – Mesach Semakula
This Luganda hit grabbed the song of the year accolade and helped Mesach to bag artiste of the year. It was simply a success. But the meaning behind this song sources claim was acquired after a babe who was chucked by Mesach started rumors against his new catch. We hear the lady in question is a prominent singer in Uganda.
Juliana was hitting at former boyfriend and dad of her kid Amon Lukwago. Juliana was always accusing Lukwago of cheating on her. Juliana was left down after the pair broke because of his selfish behavior.
BA YUDA- Chameleone – This song is definitely hitting the Judas. Moze Radio and Weasel! Particularly Weasel since he is Chameleone’s younger brother who walked out on him.
MAZONGOTO-Dr Hilderman – Dr. Hilderman’s song was a hit that caught Ugandans by surprise. That Hilderman was talking about the big double beds that have caused trouble in marriages because couples are far apart to bond after say a fight while others claim he was talking about big women.
Bread and Butter - Radio and Weasel Again Bebe Cool comes into the picture. The boys were mocking his split with wife Zuena.Gorgeous Zuena went to Jinja after the split and in the song they talk about going to Jinja to pick her. Clearly showing Bebe is not a good lover. Mbu they are better.

Ex Miss Uganda was last week denied a visa to the UK. In the very week Weasel and Radio were denied visas too due to the information that was not tallying and yet they were going to the same place and concert.
It is amazing how a graduate like Radio failed to advise his not so learned friend Weasel on how to fill a visa application form properly. For Salma the reasons were not having enough money on the account and over staying her previous visa.

You have listened to their music, you know who is loaded when it comes to dime, doing very well when it comes to sex lives but one thing is lacking and that is Education.
Ragga Dee: He is a music heavy weight no doubt. But when it comes to Education, he is certainly a featherweight. The self proclaimed grand father of Ugandan Music isn' t so learned. What is known is the fact that he completed his senior six from Masaka based St. Henry's College Kitovu. He claims he went to a US Institution but nope, we don't believe.
Henry Tigan: The soft spoken reggae star Henry Tigan is a fresh graduate from Kyambogo University. He graduated with a bachelors degree in Adult Community education earlier this year.He is truly a force to reckon with the upstairs department.
Bobi Wine: Singer Bobi Wine is truly a great man. He grew up from the Ghetto but that never stopped him from acquiring a degree in Music from Makerere University. Seriously the Mazzi Mawanvu singer is a heavy weight in the education section unlike his top competitors.
Juliana Kanyomozi: She is the reigning PAM Award artiste of the year, she is talented, an amazing figure and a very good voice but sadly, very few teachers heard it. Sources reveal that Juliana due to social and financial problems stopped in Senior Five. We are told she could escape from school and hit Sabrinas Pub for Karaoke in the 1990's. So lucky she had a killer voice.
Moze Radio: is one hell of a dangerous singer who definitely has a big and bright future ahead. He is a graduate from Makerere University. He completed a degree in Community Psychology but I don't understand why his English is suspect.
Straka Mwezi: The celebrated music MC and WBS late show star has seen it all. She has been on the social scene for far far too long and worked and worked on almost all the best Radio and TV stations in uganda. And Bars! She has rubbed shoulders with Uganda's richest and is ever invited at the best functions in town. You just can't mess with Straka. But wait a minute, she never completed school. Senior Four was her highest.
Jose Chameleone: He is undoubtedly a heavy weight in the music but when it comes to school, he is a light weight. Just like pal Bebe Cool, The Ba Yuda star is a senior six graduate. And again like Bebe, he stormed to Nairobi and released his first hit Mama Mia. Since then he has not looked back.
Iryn Namubiru: She Released one hit that took her heights but ever since it's been down all the way through even though she has tried that much to revive her career with collaborations. Well she is married to a white guy and dime is available but her education is in slumber mode. Sources indicate that the last time she checked out a black board was in Senior Three.
Karitas Karisimbi: She is gorgeous! Now imagine if she had gone to school. She would be a perfect model woman. But sadly, she dropped out in Senior six from City High School and hit Kampala streets. Ever since she has worked on WBS, Capital Radio, and now she is back on WBS. She's definitely seen it all.
Jackie Chandiru: The Blu3 heartthrob was offering a degree in Industrial Fine Art at MUK but later dropped. Retakes were accumulating like hell. she was spending most of her time in the Sir Apollo Kaggwa Hostel Baston instead of class. They were set to fire her anyway.
Weasel TV: Just like his older brother Jose Chameleone, Weasel TV isn' t learned. We hear he dropped out of school in Senior Three. No wonder he call himself TV. I doubt if he knows what it means.
Desire Luzinda: Ah, Seya's pal! Desire Luzinda is undoubtedly a great singer with a great body. But one thing that has eluded her is a certificate or any academic document of note. Ok she's got a senior six certificate but that is what she has. In 2004, she joined Makerere University for a development studies degree course. The two years later, she dropped out and joined campus but this time Nkozi University for a long distance course. We hear she dropped out of it too.. Ahhh!
More on the Unlearned Stars

Weasel and Radio rocked Sweden over the weekend. This was after Juliana had performed in Stockholm making Sweden a second home for Ugandan artistes. The ''bread and butter'' singers sent temperatures high in Sweden.
On the first day of March they were performing in Oslo and later proceed to Denmark and on 6th March they will be in Amsterdam only to wind up in Brussels on the 7th March. Way to go guys!

Just on Boxing day, singers Bebe Cool and Chameleone reunited in what is arguably the biggest concert of the year at Kiwatule recreation center with a massive stage performance together.
And now word reaching our desk indicates that Bebe Cool will be in concert with Goodlife boys Weasle TV and Moze Radio, we can reveal. Insiders tell us it will be a musical battle between the pus pus singer and the Nyambura boys which will take place at Crested Towers based Super Paradise bar formerly Blue Africa on 31st.
We hear the singers have already agreed to stop fighting each other once fans vote for their best after the performances. Looks like it will be interesting stuff, Huh?
