Earlier this month, Buğra Uğur suffered a heart attack during his diving into Agean Sea and he passed away at the age of 53. His funeral was later held in İstanbul by his family and 1978 Turkish representative Nilüfer was amongst the people who attended the funeral.
Tragically, Buğra Uğur's latest interview, which was made by Michael Kuyucu, was about the Eurovision Song Contest and Buğra Uğur expressed what he experienced at his participation at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981. "A group of Turkish vandals attacked me just before I left İstanbul for the contest and they broke my nose-bone. It wasn't the worst experience; the worst thing was no-one supported me there..." he added and they remembered that they got one of the worst results for Turkey with nul points that year in the contest.
