Grammy-award winning R&B singer R. Kelly recently fell ill due to complications from throat surgery. I attended Reggae Sumfest 2011 and like many other concert goers, was very disappointed when R ruh was unable to perform pursuant to an emergency throat procedure. Hence, I was equally excited to learn that Mr. R ruh would be making it up to his fans by making an appearance at this year’s Reggae Sumfest. Now, to learn of that R. Kelly is ill again, I feel like I’m on a reggae rollercoaster!
Despite my concerns, Sumfest organizers maintain that they have been in contact with R Kelly’s management team and have been advised that he is suffering from a simple case of laryngitis.
R Kelly’s team is allaying the concerns of festival goers by assuring the Sumfest production team R rah (aka R. Kelly) will definitely (read hopefully!) be performing on Reggae Sumfest 2012 as scheduled.
I’ll be the first one to let you know if this isn’t the case!
The 20th Annual Reggae Sumfest takes place in Montego Bay, Jamaica July 15-July 23. For more information and/or tickets visit ReggaeSumfest.com
