R. Kelly is slated to perform at the 20th edition of this year's Reggae Sumfest in Montego Bay, Jamaica. R. Kelly missed last year's Reggae Sumfest due to an illness. He was however replaced by reggae crooner Cocoa Tea.
Trey Songz's July 20 performance (International Night 1) will be followed by R Kelly on July 21 (International Night 2).
According to Sumfest Organizers, R. Kelly was disappointed that he could not make it last year.
"R Kelly was so disappointed with not being able to come to Sumfest last year that we spent the whole year trying to work out a make-up date, which was Reggae Sumfest 2012," said Sumfest organizer, Johnny Gourzong, when questioned about the artiste in this year's line-up.
The Sumfest stage was taken over by Nicki Minaj last year, and in previous years, Usher and Chris Brown massaged the ears of the event's supporters. This year's Sumfest will be particularly special for fans and performers alike as this year marks Reggae Sumfest's 20th Anniversary and Jamaica's 50th.
