So Lil Jon was coming to O1NE Beirut yesterday and decided to cancel his show a couple of days before due to travel restrictions from the US government. Honestly, I’m not buying his excuse and I think that’s total B.S and unprofessional because these restrictions were issued back in August 2014, so his manager must have known about them before agreeing to fly to Beirut. Funnily enough, Lil Jon was at White Beirut back in August 2014 when the situation was deteriorating and we had suicide bombings a couple of months before.
On another note, I think the US Embassy should update their travel restrictions because Lebanon has been relatively safe for quite some time now, or at least be more specific like the UK Embassy is and advise against all travel to the southern Bekaa region of Lebanon along the border with Syria.
In all cases, it’s his loss.
PS: Here’s a song min wa7e el mounessabé.
