For those interested in seeing the emcee during his forthcoming U.S. run, your plans might be in some serious trouble. Taking to Instagram earlier today, Skepta revealed that his U.S. visa was denied. “Love to everybody that wanted to see me on tour this month, my U.S visa has been denied and I am not allowed in America right now,” wrote Skepta in an Instagram caption. “Still taking forward steps and forever working with God.
