Internationally acclaimed Dancehall superstar, Beenie Man will finally return to a U.S. stage after his work permit to the North American country has been officially reinstated.


Despite being issued a United States visa last summer, Beenie Man has yet to perform at an event in the country since his work permit was revoked by the Embassy of the United States in Kingston over two years ago. As a result, the self-professed King of the Dancehall was unable to perform on BET’s 106 and Park alongside Trinidadian-American hip-hop megastar, Nicki Minaj as originally scheduled this past April.

However, Beenie Man will now be able to perform at the first ever Groovin’ In The Park concert on July 1 at Roy Wilkins Park in the New York based borough of Queens. CEO of Groovin Inc. Christopher Roberts announced that Beenie Man will be a headliner at his company’s upcoming event while expressing glee regarding the prominent deejay’s retrieval of his American work permit.

"I am extremely excited to announce that our booking agent here in New York was able to secure a work permit for the Dancehall king, Beenie Man to be a headline performer at this year’s 'Groovin In the Park' concert on July 1," Roberts said in a statement.


"Music fans in the tri-state area have been waiting for a very long time for the opportunity to see Beenie Man perform live here in the USA again. I am glad we were instrumental in making it happen for the fans. Beenie Man is an extremely talented entertainer and we are happy that he will be again able to showcase his talents on stage in New York.”

Groovin’ In The Park will also feature Reggae legends, Beres Hammond and Jimmy Cliff as the show honors three nations celebrating milestone independence anniversaries this year: United States (236) as well as Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago who will both be celebrating golden anniversaries this year (50).
