The Police Criminal Investigations Division has summoned singer Douglas Sseguya, also known as Weasel, former manager Geoffrey Kyagambidwa, also known as Chagga and Emotions Musinguzi over releasing the late Moses Ssekibogo also known as Mowzey Radio’s songs.
In separate letters dated January 24 the three individuals have been asked to help police in investigations over the alleged unauthorized release of the late singer’s songs.
“Inquiries are being conducted under the above quoted reference where it is alleged that several persons are reproducing substantial parts and are recomposing musical works of the late Mowzey Radio without licence of the copyright owners’ knowledge,” reads in part the summons from CID.
“You are therefore in pursuance of the provisions of Section 27A of Police Act reminded to report before the Commissioner Media Crimes department at CID.”
This website has learnt that the summons stem from a complaint by the late singer’s mother Jane Kasubo to police over release and sale of his songs without permission from the family.
Weasel was a co-singer with Radio in Goodlyfe whereas Chagga was their manager.
Recently, the Administrator General ordered the management of Goodlyfe and Angel Music to stop any release or performance of the new songs left behind by the late Mowzey Radio.
In an order released on January 14, the Administrator General said his office is in the process of streamlining the late singer’s estate adding that they have realized that the Goodlyfe management has been releasing songs left behind by the singer before his death without authorization.
“We have reliable information that you have been gaining income from various streaming platforms and other entities through the distribution and performance of the late Mowzey Radio’s musical works without remitting the same to his estate,” the letter by Irene Bayiga ,the assistant Administrator General said.
