American R&B singer, R. Kelly has been prohibited from Philadelphia following the alarming allegations in the“Surviving R. Kelly,” the Lifetime docuseries that definite the singer’s supposed long history of sexual, physical, and mental maltreatment of young girls and women.

According to CBS Philly, the Philadelphia City Council cast a ballot collectively to ban the artist from venturing foot in the city as a part of Councilwoman Helen Gym’s “Quiet R. Kelly” goals.

“We reject a system that silences black women and accepts black pain,” Gym confirmed on Twitter. “We believe survivors. R. Kelly is not welcome in Philadelphia. This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice.”

‘the resolution is about not accepting. It’s about being clear that we will not accept a future where rape is accepted, and rapists and sexual predators get away with their acts. I believe that R. Kelly and predators like him should be shamed and banished from the public sphere.”

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.

She said;

“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,”

Popular Nigerian music producer and Mavins records boss, Don Jazzy has taken to his social media platform to shared his own view to the Surviving R. Kelly documentary which started a few days ago.

Read her post below;

Buku here. I just want to say a few things… Before I start I just want it to be known that I am speaking from the heart, nothing I say or do not say is to hurt ANY party reading this or affected by this.

To the people that feel I should be speaking up/against everything that is going on right now. I just want you all to understand that devastated is an understatement for all that I feel currently.

I do apologize if my silence to all that is happening comes off as careless. That is my last intention. I pray for all the families & women who have been affected by my father’s actions. Trust, I have been deeply affected by all of this.

However, It has been very difficult to process it all. Let alone gather all the right words to express everything I feel.

Anyone that knows me personally or has been following me throughout the years knows that I do not have a relationship with my father. Nor do I speak on him or on his behalf. I also am not fond of dealing with my personal issues or personal life through social media but, I feel things are starting to get out of hand.

Unfortunately, for my own personal reasonings & for all my family has endured in regards to him, his life decisions and his last name, it has been years since my siblings and I have seen or have spoken to him.

In regards to my mother, she for the same reasonings and more has not seen or spoken to my father in years. My mother, siblings and I would never condone, support or be a part of ANYTHING negative he has done and or continues to do in his life.

Going through all I have gone through in my life, I would never want anyone to feel the pain I have felt.

Reminders of how terrible my father is, and how we should be speaking up against him, rude comments about my family, fabricating me, my siblings & our mothers ‘part’ etc. Does not help my family (Me, my sister, my brother, and my mother) in our healing process. Nor does it allow a safe space for other victims who are scared to speak up, speak up.

The same monster you all confronting me about is my father.

I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house. My choice to not speak on him and what he does is for my peace of mind. My emotional state. And for MY healing. I have to do & move in a manner that is best for me. I pray anyone who reads this understands I put nothing but good intent behind each word.

I just want everyone to know that I do care and I love you all. This is a very difficult subject to speak on… again, I apologize if my words don’t come out right…

To everyone who reached out to my family and I, sending good energy and love…Thank you. You guys really helped push us through this hard time. This past year for my family has been very difficult, all the love and support you all continue to show is why we keep going. You all fuel us.

Family, friends, followers, fans, etc… I love you guys to pieces. Your love is appreciated & always will be.

‘On a tour bus, there really aren’t many confined spaces. When you get on the bus there are bunks and so these bunks have little curtains you can pull at night if you don’t want anybody to see you sleeping.’

‘So it just so happened we were all laying in our bunks and the curtains are open, everybody’s communicating, laughing, when the [room] door flew open on the bus.,’ she recalled. ‘Robert was having sex with Aaliyah.’

When she was asked what she saw, she replied: ‘

Things that an adult should not be doing with a child.’I can’t stress to you how people are still suffering behind things that went on 20 years ago.’
