Last night Kyagulanyi was barred from performing at a street jam organized by Queen's Palace Bar along Iganga road in Jinja district. 

Although posters announcing the event had Kyagulanyi's name and portrait, he did not appear on the final list of artists approved by the police.  One of the organizers of the event, who preferred anonymity, told URN that police tasked them to remove Kyagulanyi from the list of artists before approving their event.

Kyagulanyi had arrived in Jinja town at around 5 p.m. and traversed the streets of Jinja town which caused a traffic gridlock for about two hours. However, at around 07:30 p.m., police officers cordoned off city hotel located along Clive road where Kyagulanyi had camped ahead of his performance.

Kyagulanyi told journalists at City Hotel that he was informed by the organizers while on the way that police had ordered them to put him off the list.
