Dancehall artist Mavado was granted a US work permit visa, was seen arriving at JFK airport this past Saturday.


Popular Dancehall artiste, David Constantine Brooks aka Mavado is back in the United States after he recently retrieved his visa to enter the country.

Mavado was re-issued a work permit visa by the United States embassy in Kingston; a fact that was confirmed today by his manager, Julian Jones-Griffiths via Twitter. The “Star Bwoy” deejay landed in the States this morning at JFK airport in New York without incident.

Mavado had his work permit visa revoked in 2009 by the U.S embassy during a slew of visa revocations including Jamaican artistes. His Alliance mentor, Bounty Killer along with Beenie Man, Busy Signal & former rival, Vybz Kartel also had visas taken away that year. No formal reasoning has ever been given for any of the revocations to date.

Now that the singjay is back in the U.S, he will undergo a series of interviews & will be promoting his new label, Mansion Records that was formed just last month. Mavado’s released the hit single, Delilah on the label last month and has received constant airplay locally as well in the U.S since its debut.

The move is considered a great step for Mavado whose “So Special” video back in January of 2009 earned him a world premiere on BET’s popular 106 & Park program.
