Skepta Denied U.S. Visa

It seems fans in the U.S. eagerly awaiting the arrival of U.K. grime sensation Skepta will have to keep waiting.

According to a post on the grime rapper’s Instagram, Skepta has been denied a U.S. visa.

“Love to everybody in the U.S. that wanted to see me on tour this month, my U.S. visa has been denied and I am not allowed to work in the America right now,” Skepta says on Instagram. “Still taking forward steps and forever working with God. Brb.”

Skepta was scheduled to appear in San Francisco on Friday April 20 before his big performance at Coachella. He was also scheduled for performances in Denver and New York City this May. For now, fans will have to remain hopeful and wait until things are resolved.
