U.S. immigration officials sent Haitian rapper Daniel Darinus back to Haiti and banned him from entering the United States after a screening at Fort Lauderdale airport on Tuesday, according to Konpa Events Online

Darinus, better known as Fantom, has been traveling on a visa, but spending too much time in the United States. Immigration officials had warned him several times prior, but he did not comply with the visa terms, the music site said.

Other Haitian musicians like Rutshelle Guillaume had issues with U.S. immigrations in the past as well.
