It is rarely heard of when a popular figure is denied a visa to any country. This however is exactly what happened to Ugandan popular singers David Lutalo, Ykee Benda and Weasel when they visited the Belgian Embassy in Uganda to acquire visas to enable them travel to Belgium where the three were booked for a show.

All this happened last week. David Lutalo who was very anxious to travel and perform for his fans in Belgium at a show he was booked for at the end of this month was hit with disappointing news. Lutalo was denied the visa due to failure to meet the necessary requirements.

This was the same story to his other two fellow artistes Weasel and ‘Superman’ singer Ykee Benda. They had been booked to perform in Brussels, Belgium at the end of March and they had actually cancelled their Easter performances in Uganda.

Too bad, next time better.
