Jah Cure vs British Media

there’s no such thing about Jah Cure being banned from entering the UK. We applied for a visa earlier but were not successful,

Early this week we reported that Jah Cure has been barred from entering the UK but his management team have denied British newspaper reports from Daily Mail and Observer World that he has been banned from Britain and will therefore not perform on a series of concerts in that country later this month.

the singer's publicist, Alison Young, said in a statement yesterday, "We are aware that there have been circulations on the Internet and other media that Jah Cure has been banned from Britain". "We would like to advise that the British authorities have communicated no such ban."

Young said that the Rastafarian singer, who has been booked to perform in England for the first time since his release from prison has acquired a work permit for the UK and is now in the process of securing a UK visa, which is a separate application process, but no determination has yet been made on the issue.

"Until such a determination is made, we find it irresponsible that anyone would wish to purvey such erroneous statements," added Young.

But who are we to believe? Jah Cure management or The Daily Mail? The Daily Mail newspaper website reported that British Home Office officials are understood to have barred Jah Cure from entry as his presence would not "be conducive to the public good".

According to the Daily Mail report, "The decision to bar the reggae star is believed to have been approved at the highest level, but organisers of the tour appear to have been taken by surprise." What is the real story, who is telling the truth?
