Gospel artiste, Nacee has called to people who dislike Kwabena Kwabena’s ‘Bue Kwan‘ song to dislike that of American artiste, R. Kelly too.
His statement is based on the perception by people that Kwabena’s song is not a Gospel song because he is a secular artiste. Nacee questioned the hypocrisy behind the decision by people not to accept ‘Bue Kwan‘ but happily sing along to songs by Kelly.
“the same people who rejected Kwabena Kwabena’s gospel song accept R Kelly in our churches,” stated Nacee on Hitz FM. “R Kelly has done many awkward things that Kwabena Kwabena hasn’t done yet he sang the ‘Storm is Over,’ ‘You saved Me’ songs that were remixed by T D Jakes…”
R. Kelly has been involved in lots of controversy but is highly regarded in the music world.
After a July 1996 brawl at a Lafayette, Louisiana health club involving Kelly and his entourage, Kelly was placed on a year’s unsupervised probation starting August 13, 1997, after being found guilty of battery. One of the victims, Christopher Mahoney, needed 110 facial stitches. Also that year, 20-year-old Tiffany Hawkins sued Kelly for $10 million and accused him of having sexual relations with her when he was 24 and she was 15. Kelly settled the lawsuit in 1998 for $250,000, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
On April 8, 1998, Kelly was arrested on three misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct, including one charge on violating noise ordinance for playing his music extremely loud from his car. Prosecutors from the district attorney’s office dropped the first two charges on May 7 and the noise charge on July 22 that year.
On February 3, 2002, a video surfaced allegedly showing Kelly engaging in sex with, and urinating on, an underage girl.
In June 2002, Kelly was indicted in Chicago on 21 counts of child pornography. That same month, Kelly was apprehended by Miami Police Department on a Chicago arrest warrant, and Polk County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search of Kelly’s residence in Davenport, Florida. During the search, officers recovered 12 images of an alleged underage girl on a digital camera – wrapped in a towel in a duffel bag – which allegedly depicted Kelly “involved in sexual conduct with the female minor.
On July 17, 2017, Jim DeRogatis reported in BuzzFeed that Kelly was accused by three sets of parents of holding their daughters in an “abusive cult.” Kelly and the alleged victims deny the allegations
