Ghanaweb.com reports that “our source confirmed that the decision to bounce him was linked to a gun brandishing incident over which he was convicted earlier this year“. The website adds that Medikal’s label mate Armani too was denied an American visa.

Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie was also spotted at the premises with his wife and daughter for the visa interview as well. According to the portal, King Sark with his family, who were at the Embassy’s immigration section (American Citizens Service/ACS) were granted visas.

America has been battling gun-related violence over the past few years with multiple shooting incidents that have occurred in the country. It is however unclear if its strict measures towards curbing the shooting incidents have influenced the Visa Officer to deny Medikal entry to the United States.

In September 2021, Medikal displayed a rugger 9mm pistol in his car without an excuse. The video shared on his Instagram story went viral and led to his arrest on October 21, 2021.

Accordingly, the rapper was remanded in prison custody for five days after which he was granted a bail worth GH¢100,000 with one surety. In February 2022, an Accra Circuit Court convicted him for the unlawful public display of arms.

What we know: News on social media in the early hours of Tuesday, 9th August 2022 reported that ‘Buga’ crooner had been released from police custody about 10 hours after being arrested for failing to perform at a show in Tanzania.

It’s unclear if Kizz Daniel was released on bail or if the case has been closed.

What led to the arrest?: Pulse has earlier reported that Kizz Daniel was arrested in Tanzania on the afternoon of Monday, 8th August 2022 after he failed to perform at an event for which he was billed to perform to a sold-out crowd of about 3000.

According to the show’s promoter Steven Ukah, a Nigerian who spoke to media personality Daddy Freeze via an Instagram Live Chat, he revealed that Kizz Daniel was paid $60,000 for the performance.

He further revealed that Kizz refused to perform because his luggage which contains his clothes and jewelry was yet to arrive from Ugandawhere he performed earlier. According to Steven, Kizz refused to accept all the clothing offered to him by stylists in Tanzania. Likewise, all pleas that he should perform fell on deaf ears as Kizz insisted he won’t perform without his clothes and jewelry.

What next in this case?: With Kizz Daniel out of police custody, fans and Nigerians will be hoping to get his side of the story either directly or through his management. Kizz Daniel has been described as a difficult artist to work with due to his behavior and the event in Tanzania is another blemish on his already battered personality.

Kizz Daniel has been having a wonderful 2022 with his hit single ‘Buga’ enjoying massive international success which has seen him tour the UK and US. Kizz will be hoping to put this event behind him and get back to work.

Pulse will continue to monitor the situation and bring you the latest developments as they unfold.
