How did Radio and Weasel start music?
Mowzey's love for music begun way back in high school and it was not until 2005 that he joined Jose Chameleone's Leone Island crew as his backup artist, also releasing his first single ‘Jennifer’. He went on to release other songs that include; ‘Dagala’, ‘Sweet Lady’ among others. By the time he died in February 1, 2018, Radio was one of the greatest musicians, vocalists and songwriters our industry has ever known.
Weasel, seeing the success of his brother Jose Chameleone, refused to continue with his higher education and chose music instead. Under Chameleone's Leone Island, Weasel released a couple of singles but it was his collabo with Chameleone; 'Bomboclat' that introduced him to the fans.
In 2008, Radio and Weasel quit the Leone Island crew forming their own label, The Goodlyfe. Radio was known for his soft RnB voice while Weasel did the Ragga and the rapping bit.
They started out with their hit single ‘Nakudata’ ft. Omulangira Suuna which announced their big breakthrough. The duo went on to release songs like Lwaki Onumya, Zuena, Nyambura and Bread and Butter. In the same year, 2008, the duo collaborated with other artists like Blue 3, Allan Toniks, G.N.L Zamba, General Ozzy from Zambia, Rachel Kay, Omulangira Suuna among others, cementing their position in the music industry.
