Wounds still fresh as Uganda mourns AK47 five years since his departure

Uganda continues to mourn the loss of Emmanuel Mayanja a.k.a AK47 five years after the dancehall singer passed on.

The family of the Mayanjas have blessed the Ugandan music industry with many talented artistes in Chameleone, Pallaso, Weasel, and AK47.

AK47, the youngest of the talented pack, was reported dead on March 16th, 2015 after he allegedly slipped and fell headfirst in the washrooms of De Ja Vu bar located in Kansanga.

The circumstances surrounding his death have never been accepted by some of his family members and fans who still believe he was maliciously murdered.

Five years since his death, fans, friends, and family still mark the 16th of March in celebration of his life as the date they got the news about the demise of their favorite singer.

In preparation to celebrate his legacy, AK47’s elder brother Jose Chameleone had organized a tribute night at his DNA bar in Kololo but it was cancelled due to unavoidable circumstances.

That has not stopped his mourners from sending out their condolences through social media as they remember the Ndi Mulokole singer.

One of the mothers to his children identified as Mariyan Abdul Saad can never come to terms with missing him because they had become soulmates.

On this day, we lay you to rest forever. Soulmate wange, best friend wange. (Saying) that I miss you is an understatement. Rest in peace. Always remembered and loved.
