Alex Ndawula, one of the pioneer DJs in Uganda signed out on Monday evening.
Ndawula, who graced the airwaves of private FM stations in Uganda- starting with Sanyu FM before moving to Capital FM in the early 90s died today evening at Nsambya hospital in Kampala at the age of 59.
His cause of death is still unknown.
Ndawula set the FM waves on fire in the morning and during his Dance Force mixes.
He retired from Capital FM in May 2017 after over 20 years at the station and 40 years of service.
Before retiring, Ndawula had stopped working for close to three weeks and during the time for his programmes ‘Dance Force’ and ‘Sundowner’, Capital FM would just play music.
When he retired, Capital FM threw a farewell party for him at the stations gardens and gave a Toyota Prado and Shs.30million as gratitude for the years he had been at the station.
“A legend has gone to sleep. Rest in Peace Radio Legend. Sleep well. We shall forever celebrate you Alexander Ndawula,” Capital FM’s producer and news anchor, Patricia Osman, confirmed Ndawula’s death Monday evening.
Born in New York in the United States in 1963, Ndawula relocated to Uganda when his father passed on when he was only eight years.
Ndawula later joined St. Mary’s College Kisubi but one year later, he went to Nairobi, then returned to Namasagali for his high school and finally Nakawa Technical Institute from where he did Marketing.
