US hip-hop/R&B star T-Pain has cancelled an appearance in Guyana after he received apparent death threats.

Promoters confirmed that his headline set at the Mash 2009 event, part of the country’s carnival festivities, was called off because of emails and phone calls containing “credible death and kidnapping threats” and that authorities will be investigating the matter.
