Internationally renowned Dancehall artiste, Moses “Beenie Man” Davis has expressed his joy & gratitude following the retrieval of his United States visa on Friday. Beenie, whose visa was taken away last April along with the likes of Aidonia, Bounty Killer & Mavado, was issued a ten year visa; re-opening his ability to travel & conduct business in the U.S.
In a press release issued on Friday evening, Beenie intimated that, “I am just thankful to the US Embassy for their renewed confidence in me, I have been granted a visitor’s visa, however, this is just the first step towards the ultimate objective of earning a US work permit so that I can realize my full earning potential and take care of my family.”
Another press release issued by his U.S based publicist echoed said sentiments. “Mr. Moses Davis, Beenie Man, thanks the United States Government, particularly the United States Consulate in Jamaica for their renewed confidence in him in the recent restoration of his United States visa privileges,” the statement read. Additionally, the release stated, “he also thanks his attorneys Professor David P. Rowe Esq and Rosemarie D. Robinson Esq for their professional assistance during this difficult time. Mr. Davis re-affirms his commitment to decency and family values as integral aspects of Jamaican reggae music.”
The self-proclaimed “King of the Dancehall” joins popular Dancehall singjay, Mavado as artistes to reclaim United States visas. Mavado was issued a U.S visa on July 2nd; allowing him to travel to the country where he would promote his new label, Mansion Records as well as embark on a series of interviews & press conferences.
Beenie previously collaborated with several American acts such as R&B songstress Mya on “Girls Dem Sugar,” pop icon Janet Jackson on her single “Feel It Boy,” & most recently Jamaican-American hip-hop superstar, Busta Rhymes for the remix of “Rum & Redbull” alongside Future Fambo.
