Samklef’s manager denies claims of deportation

Music producer/artiste, Samklef’s manager has denied that the artiste, who was recently denied entry upon arrival in England, and subsequently deported, traveled to the U.K on a false claim.

The story, published recently in a well known weekly magazine, alleged that the father of one said he’d lied to immigration officers about his reasons for traveling to the U.K, saying most Nigerian artistes do it.


The magazine wrote that they learnt He told immigration that he was on vacation and they eventually found out he came for shows without work permit. Which he positively admitted to. However, Samklef’s manager is now denying this.

In a chat with NET, he said ‘I don’t know where they got their information from. He however admits Samklef, 26, was denied entry, and sent back from Heathrow arrival but Samklef himself has refused to have a conversation with anyone on the issue.

According to the manager, ‘Samklef was once invited to the U.K for a show, but couldn’t attend due to logistics challenges on the part of the organizers. A few months later, he got another invitation and tried to travel on the visa issued him by the former company, but unknown to him, that company had reported him to immigration, accusing him of fraudulent activities, hence, he was sent back to Nigeria’.

However, he claims everything has been settled since then, and ‘all is now well’.
