American legendary singer, R. Kelly has been denied permits to host his concert in the of Illinois State Fairgrounds on April this year.
According to the original flyer for the Springfield Spring Break Jam which revealed Kelly was supposed to host his concert at April 6 which would have feature top celebrities such as rapper Yella Beezy and singers Young Lloyd and Dre Madison.
However, one Denise Albert who is the spokeswoman for the Dept. of Agriculture (IDOA) revealed to newsmen that Kelly permits were not granted by the Dept.
“That application was under review until Thursday, at which point Illinois Dept. of Agriculture (IDOA) staff contacted the organizer to let them know their application would not be approved. Unfortunately, we cannot control when organizers start promoting an event — there was never a signed agreement to host the event at the Illinois State Fairgrounds, only an application”
She furthermore stated that; “The criteria they didn’t meet is security concerns based on recent protests,”
