Ugandan Fashion and lifestyle magazine Satisfashion UG rolls out its November 2021 issue featuring actress and beauty queen Evelyn Kironde Namatovu. For her Satisfashion UG cover story, Evelyn shares insight on how her career started out, landing one of her biggest roles to date; playing Chelsea Kintu on hit TV show Prestige, and her journey so far.

For the November edition of Satisfashion UG magazine, Evelyn projects the striking picture of an icon, one that is impossible to ignore. Themed silver bloom, the superstar’s youthful exuberance, and one-of-a-kind beauty do justice to stylist and creative director Mavo Kampala’s inspiration behind the shoot; flowers and exotic beauty.

Read excerpts from the interview below.

On Starting out

I had gotten to a point where I was tired of asking my parents for pocket money. I don’t think it is a great idea to constantly ask our parents for money. The habit can become quite irritating.

On Pageantry

Pageantry is a rollercoaster that’s also a great learning experience. Honestly, just like every competition, there will be only one winner. During boot camp, young women are trained to pick so much more than just a crown at the end of the race. After all, it’s just one crown. I owe everything to pageantry.

On the demands of acting

I’ve learned that the job is far from easy, especially when it comes to planning time. I’m now a great timekeeper. I’ve learned to be patient; I’ve always been patient but it has since gotten elevated because of this experience. I’ve also learned that creating a great project is a process, one that requires commitment. I’m also learning to work with people. I’m such an introvert, and this is a great learning curve for me. Of course, you can’t be on the same project with people like Cleopatra Koheirwe and not have a great deal of learning. You are consistently learning and evolving. Who wouldn’t want that?.
