Rapper Shafik Walukagga alias Fik Fameica was deported and barred from performing in South Africa due to visa issues.
The “Property” hitmaker was supposed to perform in South Africa on Saturday. But due to his naiveté, this will not be possible.
Fik was supposed to be one of the headline acts at the Leonard Hotel in Sandton on Saturday, October 30, 2021. However, when he arrived in South Africa, he was informed that he would be unable to perform due to visa issues.
Since then, the singer has returned to Uganda and apologized to his South African fans.
“Yesterday I left Uganda for South Africa to attend a show that is happening on 30th/10/2021 this Saturday at Leonard Hotel Sandton, when I got to South Africa it was noted that my visa/work permit had issues, unfortunately, we didn’t detect this coming. I had to cancel my onward travel to South Africa and return to Uganda this evening.”
Many have pointed out that the rapper’s problems may be related to the fact that he could have gone to South Africa on a tourist visa rather than a working visa. Which would have prevented him from performing. We haven’t heard anything from his management about what happened in South Africa.
