Jazmine responded: Very much, very, very much. It's something, uhm, I think I will never get over. The music lives on... I don't think I have any other favourite writer like Radio. He is my favourite writer Ugandan... music writer... I think I love his lyrics more, more much than the music... Not everybody can write the way Radio can write. He is special. He is unique... I miss him so much... He has written most of my songs.

Mowzey Radio wrote three songs for Lydia Jazmine, including Masuka and Nkubanja.
