Skepta ‘denied US work visa’

He’s due to perform at Coachella this weekend.

While the first weekend of Coachella kicks off today with appearances from the likes of LCD Soundsystem, Foals, Chvrches and Calvin Harris scheduled throughout the weekend, one artist who doesn’t look like making their way to the Californian desert is Skepta.

Fresh from releasing ‘Man’ this morning, taken from the Londoner’s new album, ‘Konnichiwa’ which follows on 1st May, he revealed via Instagram he “is not allowed in America right now” after his visa was denied.

In addition to the two Coachella weekends, the grime superstar had dates in Los Angeles (18th April) San Francisco (20th) and Denver, CO (2nd May), plus a slot at Moogfest (19th - 22nd May, Durham, NC).
