Who is Weasel?

Douglas Mayanja, popularly known as Weasle is a Ugandan singer and songwriter. The 32-year-old music star was widely known as a member of the Goodlyfe crew otherwise known as Radio & Weasel. The two-man band made a lot of hit songs together and rose to become one of the most successful bands in East Africa.

Weasel was born into a musical family. He has three brothers; all of whom are successful musicians. The three include; the late AK47, Pallaso, and Jose Chameleone.

The death of AK47 who had made a name for himself as one of Uganda’s most sought-after rappers immensely affected Weasle. As a way of honoring the closeness, Weasel named his firstborn child after the late brother.

Pallaso, on the other hand, currently ranks among East Africa’s top artists. He enjoys a wide fanbase that goes beyond the region. Some of his hit songs include; Bega Bega, Malamu, Nalonda Nemala, Go Down, Mpa Love, Happy Birthday And Hana Remix Among Many Others.bega Bega, Malamu, Nalonda Nemala, Go Down, Mpa Love, Happy Birthday, And Hana Remix Among Many Others.
