The singer will no longer take the stage for the festival’s last closing concert on Sunday, July 14 as a result of the visa denial, according to Le Devoir, a French-language newspaper published in Canada.

Yemi was mentioned as one of the Festival International Nuits d’Afrique’s headliners.

Commenting on the development, Suzanne Rousseau, the festival co-founder, said the visa denial was due to “financial reasons, and for fears that the group wouldn’t leave Canada.”

Rousseau also lamented that the process of applying for a visitor’s visa has been difficult for “at least five years.”

She added: “Finally, we got an answer saying the musicians were refused, saying they have to guarantee that they have enough financial means that will make them go back to their country.”
