Unluckly american R’N'B singer R Kelly won’t be able to perform at Sumfest in Mobay.The 44 year-old R’n'B artist, whose real name is Robert Kelly, was in severe pain and was rushed to a Chicago hospital on Tuesday where an abscess on one of his tonsils was drained, according to a statement from the singer’s spokesman Allan Mayer.
R Kelly won’t make it to Reggae Sum Fest for health reasons and the organizers wish him the best recovery and are now looking into several options and seeking replacement in such a short notice.Reggae Sumfest kicked off last Sunday night (July 17) with a beach party and continues tonight through Saturday with the main festival nights at Catherine Hall in Montego Bay. International superstar Nicki Minaj will be joined by Beres Hammond, Jah Cure, Vybz Kartel, Mavado, Half Pint,Bounty Killer and more acts on the world-class stage of Reggae SumFest 2011.
