We recently reported that LXG will be performing in New Jersey. They are a very popular band and this was going to be a treat for the diaspora population in New Jersey and other surrounding States. Unfortunately they were refused entry into the US by customs and thereforw show has been cancelled. In a post on SN Radio, Doreen Paowui denied any responsibility for the incident and claims she is unaware that they were coming. She is owner of Peace, Unity and Love LLC a company that aims to promote Sierra Leonean music to the international market. Click here for Doreen’s statement. LXG has yet to comment on this issue.
