Samklef not deported says manager
Samklef's manager denies that the Nigerian producer/artist was
deported from England.
According to reports, the musician was recently denied entry upon arrival in the country and subsequently deported for travelling on a false claim.
The story, published in A Nigerian weekly magazine, alleged that the singer had lied to immigration officers about his reasons for travelling to the U.K. Reportedly Samklef had initally claimed to be on vacation but finally admitted that he'd planned to play shows without a work permit.
Now Samklef's manager has told NET: "I don't know where they got their information from."
He however admits Samklef (26) was denied entry, and sent back from Heathrow. The singer apparently refused to have a conversation with anyone on the issue.
"Samklef was once invited to the U.K for a show, but couldn't attend due to logistics challenges on the part of the organisers. A few months later, he got another invitation and tried to travel on the visa issued him by the former company, but unknown to him, that company had reported him to immigration, accusing him of fraudulent activities, hence, he was sent back to Nigeria," says the manager.
He claims the situation has been settled.
