R.Kelly is not scheduled for ‘Year of Return, Ghana 2019’ – Committee
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 event promoters/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 publicly released and listed on www.yearofreturn.com has no such planned activity.
The general public is therefore advised to disregard any such publication.
