In a social media post sighted by this site, Nyashinski revealed that Madaraka Festival organisers could not secure their visas to the US, therefore cancelling their participation in the festival and subsequent tour.

According to the Hayawani crooner, Madaraka Festival organisers tried everything in their power to secure them the visas in vain.

The rapper reiterated that his team and himself were psyched up for the tour and were ready to entertain Kenyans in diaspora.

However, they could not travel to the US due to visa issues, rendering their fans a disappointed lot.

The artiste took the opportunity to apologise to his fans in the US who were looking forward to his performances in a couple of states in America.


“We regret to announce that due to factors beyond our control, we will be unable to perform at the USA Madaraka Festival 2024. Despite the diligent efforts of the organisers, they were unable to secure visas for our team’s entry into the US. We had very much looked forward to the tour and we sincerely apologise for all the inconvenience this has caused.” Wrote Nyashinski.

The latest development irked countless Kenyans in the US who were looking forward to his unrivaled shows.

MGAHAWANI.com understands the Madaraka Festival 2024 music tour was scheduled to kick off in Dallas on May 25 2024, and culminate in Seattle on June 18 2024.
