Renowned rapper 21 Savage is set to make his highly-anticipated return to his hometown as he announces his inaugural concert in London.
The much-anticipated show will take place at the iconic O2 arena on November 30.
This marks a significant milestone for the artist, who was previously unable to travel internationally due to a series of immigration issues.
In February 2019, 21 Savage faced a 10-day detention in a detention center in southern Georgia, raising concerns about his immigration status and visa expiration.
At the time, he asserted that he had been unfairly targeted due to his expired visa, highlighting that he had arrived in the United States at the age of 7 and was unaware of his visa’s status.
After navigating a lengthy and complex legal process spanning three years in the federal Immigration Court backlog, 21 Savage’s immigration court proceedings have finally reached a resolution.
His lawyer, Charles Kuck, confirmed that he has been granted lawful permanent resident status in the United States, granting him the freedom to travel internationally.
With this legal hurdle behind him, 21 Savage made a triumphant international appearance on October 7 in Toronto alongside Drake. The rapper took to social media to express his excitement and gratitude, stating, “London, I’m coming home.”
