American R&B superstar R Kelly not visiting Ghana


Despite media reports that R&B singer, Robert Sylvester Kelly, is scheduled to headline the ‘Year of Return, Ghana 2019’ concert, the committee in-charge of the events has issued a statement to refute those claims.

R. Kelly

According to the Steering Committee, R Kelly is not scheduled for ‘Year of Return, Ghana 2019’ as part of their all-year-round festivities.

They stated categorically that the general public should disregard any of such publication.

The statement is as follows:

The Steering Committee of the “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” has taken notice of

Media publications that suggest that American R&B singer Robert Kelly more popularly known as “R. Kelly” is scheduled to come to Ghana to perform as part of the Year of Return activities.

The committee is unaware of any event which has Mr. Kelly billed to participate.

Further, the Committee has had no engagements with any eventpromoters/organizers regarding Mr. Kelly’s supposed performance in Ghana. The committee has also not endorsed any event featuring Mr. Kelly.

For the avoidance of doubt the Year of Return calendar of activities publiclyreleased and listed on has no such planned activity.

The general public is therefore advised to disregard any such publication.

Thank you.

On behalf of the Year of Return, Ghana 2019 Steering Committee
