In a shocking turn of events this morning, the entertainment industry received heartbreaking news of the passing of singer and actress Evelyn Lagu, also known as Evelyn Nakabira. Her untimely death came after a long and courageous battle with heart and kidney complications that spanned several years.
Following the confirmation of Evelyn’s demise, an immediate meeting was convened at her residence in Bujuuko. The gathering included prominent figures from the entertainment world, such as Sophie Gombya, Bbosa Sserunkuuma, and Mesach Semakula, among others. Their primary agenda was to discuss the funeral arrangements for the beloved singer.
During the meeting, it was unanimously agreed that Evelyn Lagu Love’s body should be placed at the National Theatre for one night. This decision aimed to provide an opportunity for her devoted fans and fellow musicians to bid their final farewells and pay their respects.
Unfortunately, the National Theatre’s plans hit a significant obstacle, as the executive board of the institution declined the request, citing undisclosed reasons. This unexpected refusal has left the entertainment industry and Evelyn’s admirers in a state of bewilderment.
As a result, Evelyn Lagu’s remains will remain at her residence in Bujuuko until tomorrow. Subsequently, her body will be transferred to her ancestral burial grounds in Masaka, where she will find her eternal resting place on Wednesday. The refusal by the National Theatre to honor this remarkable artist has left a void in the hearts of many who cherished her talent and contributions to the industry.
