Fast rising dancehall artist Lanmine got more attention than we was looking for yesterday when he attempted to board a flight to Antigua at the Norman Manley international airport for a promotional performance but was forced to cancel the trip as he could not get through the metal detectors to bboard the flight because of his multiple faec piercings. 

 "The metal detectors went off like crazy, it cause a big ruption outta the airport, till we haffi just tek way wi self and go back home," one entourage member told one876.

Manager Stasha of Stashment Records said that the artiste could not have removed the piercings to board the flight because his face was not fully healed.

"When we reach the airport, we realise that it wasn't going to work because the piercings cannot be removed yet because the skin on his face is not fully healed. We just had to postpone the show, but mi never expect all dem excitement de!" she said. 

When contacted, an expert airport security official suggested: "When you are travelling, especially after the September 11th attacks, it is recommended that one wears nonmetallic jewelry. Quality metal body jewelry is non-ferromagnetic and will not set off the large walk-through metal detectors. However, the hand-held wands are often more sensitive and frequently do sound an alarm when scanning directly over metal body jewellery."


Lanmine vaulted into the public spotlight this month when stories online revealed he had over 40 new piercings - in his face.

Lanmine is known for singles like Independent Gyal and Its Creeping featuring Fambo, among others. his latest single, Touch Yu Hard, was released a week ago and has generated thousands of views on Facebook and youtube. 

“I am getting good comments, the younger generation love it a just mostly the elders who nuh like it, even though some of them do,” Lanmine said. “Even last night I was walking in the mall and everybody a tek camera for pictures and a sey dem like it. I have a new song out called Touch Yu Hard and the people dem a sey.”
