Joseph Nkrumah Buabeng a.k.a Nero-X, winner of Born Starz, an entertainment reality show which aired on Viasat 1 according to the station’s website has been denied visa to the country by the UK High Commission.
Nero-X who emerged winner of the Viasat1’s maiden talent show in January was to be on a 7-days trip to the UK, fully catered for by Viasat1 as part of his award package.
Citing reasons for his refusal, the UK High Commission stated that although Nero-X had won the talent show and the trip was going to be paid for by Viasat 1 Broadcasting G Limited, “it is the intentions of the applicant that are paramount in considering any application.”
It further stated that they are not sure Nero-X is seeking a genuine visit or intends to leave the UK at the end of his visit.
As consolation, Viasat1 made sure Nero-X performed with Okyeame Kwame during Ghana Music Week, and secured a VVIP ticket for him at the Chris Brown concert.
