Dancehall artiste Lanz was forced to postpone his first Canadian tour after he failed to get his Canadian visa in time. The shows have instead been postponed until early April. 


The scheduled shows, one of which was dubbed 'She Nah Leggo': Girls Roll Out edition should have been held at the Classic Lounge in North York, Ontario, on Friday, February 16th, and then 'Infatuation: Valentine's Edition which should have been held at the V Lounge in Lasalle, Ontario on February 17th.


"I want to apologise to my fans, and I was really looking forward to performing in Canada for the first time but the promoters have postponed the shows, the visa is already done, so that is no problem. There was a lot of buzz around the shows based on the feedback on my social media pages, so we are going to push up back the promotion, and I will be there soon,," Lanz said. 


Lanz had his big breakthrough last year with 'She Nah Leggo' song  was produced by the multi-talented artiste and producer Lanz himself and Andrew Reid, and was released on the Unisyz Muzik/Ubique Muzyq label. The song dominated the local party scene, and FM radio, and a video for the song has hit the 1.3 million mark on Youtube.


"The song is still doing well overseas, we are getting feedback from selectors all over the world, Canada, US, Africa, and Europe. The song just connect with people on a different level," Lanz said. 


The deejay recently inked a recording and management contract with Lifestyle Entertainment.


"Lanz is an artiste for the future, there is a lot of interest in him in Canada, US and England. Right now, we are pushing through with the promotion of his follow-up song, 'Boom', and we're trying to align his song with corporate partners," a representative of Lifestyle Entertainment, said in a release.


The 'Boom' song was released three weeks ago on the Unisyz Muzik/Ubique Muzyq label, and has already racked up thousands of views on Youtube. 


"We are going hard with 'Boom' because the streets are responding to it already," Lanz, whose given name is Orlando Francis, said. 


Born and raised in Mandeville, Manchester, he came to Kingston to pursue music several years ago. He got his first taste of success in the music business in 2012 when he produced Potential Kid's hit single, 'A Yah So Nice'.


"Right now, 2018 looks very promising, the career looks great," he said.
