No Rap Return: Lil Wayne Forced To Cancel Comeback Gig After UK Authorities Deny Entry
There’ll be no English Strawberries for Lil Wayne this weekend,
after border authorities denied entry to the UK for the American rapper.
Lil Wayne was due to give his first performance in the country for several years on Saturday at
the Strawberries and Creem Festival in Cambrige, but his application for entry has been refused. Ludacris will now replace him on stage.
In a statement on their website, festival organisers said
Due to extreme circumstances beyond our control or influence,
we are very sorry to inform you that Lil Wayne is now unable to perform at the festival…
“Lil Wayne has been refused entry to the UK directly by the Home Office in a last-minute decision.
We are deeply disappointed by this sudden and negative ruling.”
