    I won’t pretend to know the travel requirements for the UK since I’ve only visited England, but doesn’t a UK visa grant you entry to all four territories? Wizkid just returned from London recently, where he performed and granted interviews. And he’s gone a number of times. You guys don’t have to be spiteful. He’s a Nigerian act that has represented the country, but many of you are dissing him when you should be celebrating him. IMO, if it was visa expiration, I’m sure he would’ve been able to get it renewed even on short notice considering the magnitude of the awards (at least in the UK). Congrats Wiz!
