He started as a backup singer along with Weasel behind Jose Chameleone. He had first success in the year 2005 after he had released a reggae love song called "Jennifer", the official stage video for that song was filmed by Ugandan music promoter DJ Erycom.

In 2006, Mowzey Radio released another song titled "Sweet Lady", another well-received song that introduced him to a large fan base in Uganda. In October 2007, Mowzey Radio, Weasel, and Jose Chameleone toured the United States and the Caribbean. Before they returned home, Radio and Weasel had misunderstandings with Jose Chameleone.
