Singer Juliana Kanyomozi is not an artiste whose face you will find on any poster announcing an upcoming gig because she is selective of the stage on which she performs. Tonight she will be one of the curtain raisers, call her a musical friend, who will be gracing the Radio & Weasel 10 years anniversary music show tonight at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds.
In a promo video posted on social media, Juliana belts out an acapella, of the rendition of one of Radio & Weasel’s breakout songs, titled Zuena, sweetly so. “3rd November, the only place to be is Kyadondo, Radio & Weasel, 10 years of great music. I can’t wait to be there. 10 years of voices, talent, music, hit after hit and you are going to get it in one night. I can’t wait to be there. You have to be there too,” Juliana says.
You can attend the concert for the performance but more than any musical trait, most of Radio & Weasel’s music stands out for catchy lyrics, most of them beautifully put together, with a strong emotional connotation and pull that will warm and excite your heart in one or more goes.
That and more is Radio, real name Moses Nakintije Ssekibogo, and Weasel, real name Douglas Seguya Mayanja, have served to fans over the 10 years. The two artistes started walking their solo musical journey in 2007 from Leone Island, a music crew led by Jose Chameleone, Weasel’s big brother.
