Goodlyfe’s remaining artiste Douglas Mayanja alias Weasel Manizo finally visited the office of Criminal Investigative Department after he was summoned to answer queries over playing the late Radio’s music.
Sources within Goodlyfe told Watchdog that although Weasel had first refused to abide by the Law, he was advised to turn himself in before matters became worse for him.
And on Saturday, January 26, before heading to Spice Diana’s Ndi mu Love extra concert in Mukono, Weasel visited CID in Kibuli offices and recorded his statement.
This came days after, Weasel, Chagga and seven other artistes were summoned on January 25, on grounds of selling, duplicating and releasing late Radio’s music without Radio’s family knowledge.
Radio’s mother Jane Kasubo ran to CID to claim that the Goodlyfe management is using his son’s music and as a family, they are not receiving any proceeds.
However, on learning about these summons, Goodlyfe’s manager Emotional Feelingz said they will not report to CID and that if the police wants, it should go and pick them from their homes. Weasel too defied the order as he went on with his Friday gigs.
But Chagga ‘snaked’ his colleagues and recorded his statement on Friday, January 25, according to CID spokesperson Vincent Ssekatte.
That is when Ssekatte said that he will not be issuing any summon to Weasel again but he will use Chagga, Radio’s mother statements and copies of duplicated and sold out songs to file for their arrest.
Weasel has not officially come out to clarify about what went down at CID but Watchdog working on getting a comment from him.
