Dancehall star Beenie Man has apologized to fans in Canada for his non appearance at this weekend’s staging of rapper Drake’s OVO Festival.
According to a press release issued by Beenie’s team this morning (Sat), the deejay’s absence is due to the fact that the required visa to travel to Canada was not granted.
The release further stated that representatives from Beenie Man’s management team made every effort to obtain the required documents, however all attempts proved futile.
Additional support was reportedly provided by Drake’s team to have immigration lawyers represent their interest. This also proved unsuccessful.
Meanwhile, Beenie Man’s 21-track album Unstoppable is due for release on August 26. The first single Yardie was recently released to radio.
Unstoppable features production work from a variety of producers including Major Lazer, Tony Kelly, Mario C, Jordan McClure, Seanizzle, Jeremy Harding and Don Corleone among others.
