Queen Omega Receives Visa as of today
June 16, 2010 04:57PM
As of 6:30 AM PST, this morning, Queen Omega has received her final approval for her visa from Port of Spain US Embassy
and her passport is being processed today.

First we would like to share with you that we are grateful that the Most High has shown Queen Omega favor and has kept her out of the immigration dragnet that many Caribbean artists are facing today. We are grateful to Congressman George Miller's office staff for their assistance in this matter.

Hopefully all other business and travel related issues will work out and you will see her at the show on Sunday.

Thanks for your all support for Queen Omega,

Third World Music Group

FYI, Third World Music Group is Queen Omega's management, and what was written above is accurate information and not some 'internet rumour'. IF Queen Omega's passport is processed today (as promised by the State Department), and she secures another flight, then Queen Omega WILL perform at SNWMF on Sunday. SNWMF hopes to have an announcement (either way) before noon tomorrow, so please keep the faith.....

When Warren learned yesterday that the State Department had denied Queen Omega's visa request, he did what I believe any responsible promoter would do: 1) announce her non-appearance; and 2) find a replacement. To do otherwise would be disrespectful to those fans (like myself) who were looking forward to having Queen Omega grace the stage at SNWMF once again.

Obviously, finding a replacement that rises to the quality of Queen Omega is not an easy thing to do just 2 days before the festival, and while Dubtonic Kru (who is NOT Queen Omega's backing band) may not bring the Fyah like Queenie, imo they are still an outstanding band in their own right. Big up to Warren for being straight-forward with the people and to Third World Music Group for going the extra mile in an effort to (hopefully) have Queen Omega keep her appointment at SNWMF

Having just gotten off the phone with Queen Omega, I am very happy to announce that, with processed passport and plane ticket in hand, Queen Omega WILL be performing at SNWMF 2010 this Sunday!!!

Massive RASpect to Third World Music Group for going the extra mile to make this happen, with an honorable mention to congressman George Miller for the intervention.
