On Wednesday, Skepta announced a release date for Konnichiwa and shared dates for the "No Fear" tour on Instagram. He was also slated to play a pair of shows at Coachella, including one this afternoon.

Unfortunately the MC was forced to change his plans. On Instagram today, he explained that his visa was denied, so he's cancelling his U.S. dates for the time being. At the moment, it's unclear if that includes his Coachella set. (Skepta was in the U.S. last month for SXSW.) Check out his post below.

Reached by email this afternoon, a representative for Skepta assured The FADER that the issue is "in the process of being resolved. Fingers crossed!"

Reps for the U.K. embassy in the U.S., the U.S. embassy in the U.K., and Coachella were not immediately available for comment.
