Top American R&B singer-songwriter and Record producer R Kelly will be in Jamaica for Reggae Sumfest 2011.


In a press release send to the media, the singer is expected to hit the concert's stage on Friday, July 22. He joins Nicki Minaj, Mavado, Beenie Man, Tanya Stephens and I-Octane on the festival's line-up.

Johnny Gourzong, executive producer of the event, confirmed the Radio Message singer's appearance yesterday.

"The Reggae Sumfest team is excited to be presenting R Kelly on the Sumfest stage. We have been trying to contract him for the last five years and it is great to see that it is finally happening. We are expecting a spectacular performance from Mr Kelly," Gourzong stated in the release.

It will be R Kelly's second performance in Jamaica. His Jamaican debut in 1996 was surrounded by controversy at a concert at Jamworld, St Catherine. The singer, who at that time was one of the hottest artistes in R&B, had dropped his pants while performing. This was followed by a public backlash.
