Veteran musician Said Ahmed Mohamed, popular known as Momo, warmed his way into people’s hearts, with his hit song Oule.

While the Island Archipelago of Comoros-born artist had been in music for a long time, Oule is the song, which elevated his status as a musician. The song was a hit with people of different ages and backgrounds, and could hear people humming or singing it as they went about their business.

The video of the song, which was featured regularly on Botswana Television (Btv), seemed to appeal to a lot of people. Born in 1962, the musician, who was a resident entertainer for a number of hotels at different times, died on Monday due to illness.  Those who have been on outings at Gaborone Sun, would vividly remember the Oule hitmaker, as he was resident entertainer for the hotel for a long time, and patrons of the hotel seemed to enjoy his performances.
