Goodlyfe Crew

4.7M Views

Goodlyfe Crew is a Ugandan music group. Its main performers are Moses Radio (born Moses Nakintije Ssekibogo) and Weasel (born Douglas Mayanja). Starting as backing vocalists for the Ugandan musician Jose Chameleone, Radio and Weasel broke off from Chameleone's Leone Island Crew in 2008 to form the Goodlyfe Crew. Since then, the duo's songs have been successful on Ugandan radio. Starting with Nakudata in 2008, the duo went on to release Lwaki Onumya, Zuena, Nyambura and Bread and Butter. In mid-2008, the duo collaborated with other artists such as Rachel Kay, Blu*3, OS, Toniks, GNL and Zambia's General Ozzy. More recently they have performed live and collaborated with fellow Ugandan artist Keko.


History


Moses Radio's musical career began at Holy Cross Lake View Secondary School in Jinja where he was the president of the Youth Alive Club. He composed musical projects for the club that succeeded in inter-school Youth Alive Club competitions. In 2002 Radio went to Kiira College Butiki in Jinja where he had a two-year break in his musical career while he concentrated on his high school studies. He joined Chameleone's Leone Island Crew in 2004.

While working as Chameleone's backing vocalist, Radio released his own solos on Leone Island Records. These include Jennifer, Dagala, Wololo and Sweet Lady. Sweet Lady was successful though the Radio's public profile was still quite low. Weasel also released solo projects, under the auspices of his elder brother's records, but it was his collaboration with Chameleone on Bomboclat that caught the audience's attention.


Musical style


Moses Radio provides smooth RnB vocals while Weasel's contribution is a fusion of reggae, ragga and dancehall vibes.


Other members


Other Goodlyfe Crew members include Gift of Kaddo MCs, Diamond Oscar, Mr.X, Buaman, Allan Kiwanuka and Jeff Kiwanuka, who is also the group's manager. All the members have released solo projects.


Projects


Goodlyfe Crew have their own production house, Goodlyfe Magic.
