U.S. rapper Lil Wayne will not carry out at a British music pageant this weekend after he was declined entry into the UK, organisers have stated.
The five-time Grammy Award winner, who was sentenced to 1 12 months in jail in 2010 referring to a gun possession cost, was scheduled to take to the stage on the Strawberries & Creem pageant on Saturday.
U.S. rapper Ludacris will now carry out as an alternative.
“Attributable to excessive circumstances past our management or affect, we’re very sorry to tell you that Lil Wayne is now unable to carry out on the pageant on Saturday 18th June,” pageant organisers stated in a press release on Wednesday.
“Lil Wayne has been refused entry to the UK immediately by the Dwelling Workplace in a final minute determination. We’re deeply upset by this sudden and adverse ruling. We have now obtained very minimal discover, and the timing of the choice is after all upsetting for all concerned.”
