Weasel and Radio had traveled to Los Angeles, California, having been nominated in the 2013 BET Music Awards for Best International Act Africa.
"I went to America with Pallaso for Kyeyo. I failed and returned to Kampala shortly, but Uncle Pallaso stayed there," Weasel said during a press conference held ahead of his concert dubbed Love Fest Concert, which will be held on June 9 at the Lugogo Cricket Oval.
"For me, I returned and became a star while working with Radio. I went back and we made a great song... We recorded it from his basement."
While in the U.S., Pallaso, real name Pius Mayanja sired two kids with Nicole Hayman.
Hyaman jetted into Kampala on Wednesday, April 19 with their kids, Dinari Mayanja (son) and Maisha Mayanja (daughter).
