Kenya’s talented artiste Nyamari Ongegu popularly known as Nyanshinski has canceled his much-hyped USA music tour scheduled on Saturday, 1 May 2024.

Taking to his Instagram page, the multi-talented musician has stated he would not perform at the USA Madaraka Festival 2024 due to factors beyond his team’s control.

“We regret to announce that due to factors beyond our control, we will be unable to perform at the USA  Madaraka Festival 2024”, he wrote.

Expressing his frustrations, the Utazoea hitmaker went ahead to say that despite the diligent efforts of the event’s organizers, they were unable to secure visas for his team’s entry into the US.

Despite the organisers' diligent efforts, they could not secure visas for our teams’ entry into the US. We had very much looked forward to the tour we sincerely apologize for all the inconvenience this has caused,” he apologized.

Lately, the endowed musician has been caught in various scandals. Here are some of the controversies that Nyanshinski is facing in the music industry.


US visa

Days ago, US Ambassador to Kenya Meg Whitman set the record straight on why the American embassy usually denies many applicants visas.

Speaking during an interview with a local station on May 15, 2024, Whitman justified that the embassy has been right to deny visas despite others being wrong.

The ambassador, responding to a question during the interview, also explained that they deny visas in such cases to remain vigilant and cautious of individuals likely to harm the US.

"We do deny people visas and are we always right? No. But are we mostly right? Yes. Think about it everyone wants to come to America and some bad people want to come to America. Terrorists, money launders, people who have overstayed their visas before, people who have let their Green Card expire and then come back," she asserted.
