The talented singer is known for tracks such as “Bread and Butter” and “Bring Me Back” passed away after succumbing to injuries due to an accident which led him into a coma on the night of 22nd January 2018. While at a bar at Entebbe Beach, it was reported by The Star that the singer was “shoved by a bouncer, landing his head on a sharp object that inflicted a deep cut.”
A post was put on on the Radio and Weasel Instagram account to dispell rumors that the Goodlyf crew member was in critical condition, insisting he was on the road to recovery.
Hi Family, Yesterday night, Radio was involved in an accident and he is currently receiving the best treatment at Case Clinic. The situation is not alarming as being reported on social media by some people. We would like to make it clear that RADIO is getting better and right now is out of comma. Please disregard all the unnecessary reports going around. We do appreciate all your love and support during this time. Continue praying for our brother #Radiology Management.
