King Shaddy was reported to have been barred from entering the UK over allegations of deception. Zimbabwean dancehall artist King Shaddy has been banned from entering the UK for the next 10 years on allegations of deception.

According to Daily News, the artist was once denied entry into the UK where he was scheduled to perform with another Zimbabwean artist, Stunner. After further investigation, he discovered that he had been denied entry on the grounds of deception.

The Dunmore star had a lot of people on his side with a promoter reportedly putting up $15,000 for the appeal. He was meant to appear in a show, dubbed the Three Kings Tour, alongside Stunner and Nox Guni in December of 2011, but failed to make it. The artist challenged the ruling.

Again, in 2014, the dancehall chanter is alleged to have refused to perform at a gig in Mutare where he had been billed to perform. He argued that he wanted to be paid his money before he could go on stage. “When I talked to him about the show we agreed that he would collect gate takings but surprisingly he turned the tables on the day of the show saying he wanted to be paid before he performs,” Esau Mupfumi, the show organiser told the Herald then.

Surprisingly, his role model is Pastor Charamba, who with his wife Olivia is called “The First Family of Gospel”. According to reviews, Charamba's gospel music is a fusion of sungura, jazz and jiti. In some instances, it can be laid back, or vivid with traditional beats such as mbakumba and mhande.
