DJ Beenie Man joined fellow dancehall act Mavado as the second major entertainer to be granted a US visa in recent weeks.

"I am just thankful to the US Embassy for their renewed confidence in me, I have been granted a visitor's visa, however, this is just the first step towards the ultimate objective of earning a US work permit so that I can realize my full earning potential and take care of my family," Beenie Man said in a release this evening.
Last week, Beenie Man gave a brilliant performance during Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest thrilling the 20,000 strong crowd with a steady stream of current hits such as Nuh Talk Too Long, and Inna Di Go Go Club, as well as established crowd pleasers such as Memories, Wickedest Slam and Ole Dawg. He also invited social media sensation Clifton Brown onstage and together, they rocked the crowd with 'Nobody Canna Cross It'.
The deejay will be partying the weekend away in Negril at the popular ATI parties and then he will head to Trinidad for a performance this Sunday. The US work permits of several entertainers were suspended in April 2010 by the US Embassy, severely crippling the earning power of the dancehall community.
