"You organise an event of 400 people and you are expecting a turnover of about Shs2m, but the police will ask for Shs800,000 for security fees.
This means that the artistes and managers will not get any profits.
We need to revise these charges," Mr Kibuuka said.
Police charge money to facilitate officers manning the event, but they neither show standards they use to arrive at the amount nor provide receipts to the event managers.
Although each officer is entitled to at least Shs10,000 for providing security at an event, many don't get the money.
"Police officers ask for money for the patrol car, traffic, sniffer dogs and walkthrough," Mr Kibuuka said.
After Kampala Metropolitan Police commander Andrew Felix Kaweesi conceding to have also received such complaints,
Kibuuka who was speaking to the press says that many musicians have been called in different shows but they fail to attend even when people have already paid their money.
Mr Andrew Benon Kibuuka the president of Uganda Performing Artists and Musicians Association, described the death as a tragedy for the group and Kanyomozi as an individual.
