You are here: Mzansinews Events Kells show put on hold
Kells, as his millions of fans call him, was set to kick off his tour ngomso (21 March 2013) but loku akuzukwenzeka anymore. So masupporters ache will just have to wait a little longer. He was to make them go mad in Durban on the 21st which is tomorrow and then head off to Jozi mabone on the 23rd at Orlando stadium, esgodini sikamaminzela. The tickets for the shows were selling out like hot chicken feet and curried magwinya.
Now the shows have been cancelled until August so if you were planning to take your mabebeza out to see the legendary Mr Bump and Grind himself, askies kau. So what would happen to the tickets you ask?
Well it seems that if you had already bought them you can give them back and you’ll receive your randelas. However, you can still keep them until Kells finally lands eMzansi in August to perform.
Apparently it is the issue of logistics that have denied this muso to be here on time. Kells is also famous for his fear of flights. This would be very funny if it wasn’t serious. An artist as famous and rich as R Kelly should have his own private plane.
Few Mzansians had expressed reservations about the show yangomuso anyway. Kaloku ngomso is Human Rights Day, so abantu were asking why lomjita ezocula on such an important day in Mzansi’s calendar?
R Kelly was here in 2010 at the opening of the World Cup held on African soil okokuqala since it started, he left those at the stadium asking for more, but at that time it wasn’t about him but idiski. Lomjita has sold millions of albums the world over.
Many consider him the king of RnB. He has also launched the careers of many other artists including the late Aaliyah whom he discovered as a teenager. Aaliyah unfortunately died in an aircraft explosion over ten years ago.
