Lil Wayne has been pulled from Strawberries and Creem Festival after being banned from entering the UK.

The 39-year-old rapper was set to perform at this weekend’s event but he is no longer headlining it.

In a statement, organizers said: “Due to extreme circumstances beyond our control or influence, we are very sorry to inform you that Lil Wayne is now unable to perform on Saturday 18th June.

“Lil Wayne has been refused entry to the UK directly by the Home Office in a last-minute decision.

“We are deeply disappointed by the sudden and negative ruling.”

Lil Wayne real name is Dwayne Michael Carter was sentenced to a year in prison in 2010 on a gun possession change, and he served eight months.

A decade later, he pleaded guilty to a federal weapons charge, but in January 2021 he was pardoned by then-US President Donald Trump.

Wayne has been denied entry to the UK due to his convictions in the past.
