Sheku Kanneh-Mason starred at Meghan and Harry’s wedding. Now he has a problem
It all happened when Sheku Kanneh-Mason went to the office to get himself a new passport. A musician whose father is from Antigua and Barbuda (an island in the Caribbean Sea) and mother from Sierra Leone (West Africa) has applied for a document in order to apply for a visa and international work permit. A few days later, he discovered that the Home Office had canceled his first passport without giving any specific reason.
“I applied for an additional UK passport to assist with visa and work permit applications, instead I received my original dated refund, canceled on June 10th. NO explanation, NO help and now NO passport …“- wrote Sheku Kanneh-Mason on Twitter, sharing a photo of the invalidated passport.
The document has been cut at one corner. It is worth adding that the musician’s sister did not have similar problems, Isata Kanneh-Masonwho received a new document within a week and also regained her original passport.
Sheku Kanneh-Mason also asked Internet users for help via Facebook. The musician at Meghan and Harry’s wedding said he still couldn’t figure out why his passport had been canceled and a new one had not been issued, but his questions remained unanswered by officials.
“Despite the constant phone calls, I have no explanation, no help to come, and no way to meet the commitments I have contracted. Please give me some ideas as soon as possible“- wrote the cellist.
After several troubled days, Sheku Kanneh-Mason finally obtained a passport. Following the recommendations of Internet users, he contacted the Home Office secretariat for explanations. Soon he received a new document, which he praised on Twitter.
Sheku Kanneh-Mason also got an apology from the Home Office:
