‘The Doctor’, Beenie Man, can now travel to the United States, as his visa has been reinstated.
The artiste’s management team confirmed that he received his visa, but declined to give details. They did, however, indicate that the artiste had no immediate plans for travel or performances in the United States. Dancehall artist Mavado also had his US visa returned and is set for performances in the US in August. Beenie Man and Mavado were among five Jamaican entertainers who had their US visas and work permits revoked in May last year. The other entertainers who were part of the group were deejays Bounty Killer and Aidonia and sound system selector Ricky Trooper.
