"Regulations for an artist to have a license whenever he wishes to perform abroad is not something new. It’s been there. It’s for the good of the artist. We have to know where one is heading to showcase his/her work so us to ensure we offer enough protection to them if something bad happens. For Diamond he didn’t see this as important as it was when processing his Visa," Mabuye told TBC TV.
