The cancelling of the United States visa left several of his fans angry when his US tour came to an end
“Greetings and Blessings to all my fans, promoters, family and friends who have been awaiting my arrival for performances right across the United States,” Luciano said.
He explained that immigration officers cancelled his visa and denied him entry into the United States because of a liquid substance found in his luggage that contain Ganja.
“I regret to announce that whilst crossing the border from Canada to into America by air on August 25th 2016, I underwent an abnormal interrogation during which my personal hand luggage was searched. During the search a mixture that I normally use as a herb medicine for my throat was found and after numerous tests was claimed to be illegal because it contained cannabis extracts. The herbal liquid was a very small amount (less than one gram), but as a result my visas were revoked and I was denied entry into the US.
I sincerely regret the inconvenience and disappointment that this will cause as I am also deeply devastated. Please pray for me while I face yet another major obstacle in my life.” “In the meantime, we are pursuing all avenues to appeal and hopefully reverse the decision as soon as possible. Also, please note that this will not affect any bookings that I have in countries anywhere else in the world, apart from North America.” The Artiste said.
He has been facing a number of problems recently, his son was killed by teenagers and there has been problems at his home because of a man who was found there by the police. It was reported that he was a gunman and Luciano was seen as someone who was harbouring a criminal. But the artiste says he was just being kind to the alleged Gunman, he didn’t know he was wanted by the police. But there was a shoot out at Luciano’s house and three police men were shot before the Gunman succumbed to the gunshots he got from the police. And Luciano was locked up earlier this year.
The Reggae Legend who looks at himself as a messenger has never been in the media a lot over the years, he has been an Artiste who didn’t seem to do anything much to get into the limelight, even though he was given the Order of Distinction by the Government of Jamaica, as he is a respected Jamaican, who always sing uplifting songs. So we hope all the issues surrounding the cancelling of his visa will be sorted out soon, so that he can travel again and live a normal life, so his fans can be able to see him perform again.
