Several online sources have reported that Alkaline is the latest dancehall artiste who has had his US visa revoked.
Online reports claim that U.S. immigration has moved to the decision as a repercussion stemming from Jamaica’s refusal to cooperate in the U.S extraction of a drug dealer. Others state that the “Wait Your Turn” deejay has been banned for advocating violence against homosexuals in his lyrics.
Another website claims that the Jamaican artiste’s US visa cancellation occurred after he teased a new controversial single titled “Save Yourself” — where Alkaline reportedly sings about political issues affecting Jamaicans and other Caribbean nationals.
However, a source close to the “Conquer The World” deejay told Hype Life Magazine that the rumors are false.
“Not everything people read online is factual. The new rumors circulating that Alkaline has lose his US Visa is just nonsense and you all will figure it out real soon,” the source said.
Efforts to get in touch with Alkaline’s representatives prove futile.
Over the last decade, a list of Jamaican Dancehall acts has had problems with their U.S. visa including Beenie Man, Mavado, Aidonia, Bounty Killer, Sizzla Kalonji among others.
Bounty Killer and Aidonia are still without a U.S. Visa.
