Dancehall star Popcaan who is currently traversing the world took to Twitter hours ago to share his latest bad experience while doing so.
According to the Unruly Deejay, someone with authority in Jamaica sent damaging information to England immigration about him. Popcaan went on to detail that the person told immigration that he is a “gang leader” and was charged with possessing an illegal firearm in the past.
Rumours flew in Jamaica, back in 2020 that Popcaan was caught with an illegal gun by the police, however, his lawyer, Bert Samuels denied the rumours that his client, Andre Sutherland more popularly known as Popcaan, was held in possession of an illegal firearm.
Now Popcaan is disclosing that the information that was given by the authority in Jamaica caused him to be held in immigration for over 3 hours.
Check out his Tweet below.
