R. Kelly Has Been Banned From Philadelphia

R. Kelly

Disgraced R&B star R Kelly has been symbolically banned from entering a major metropolitan US city in the wake of renewed focus on sexual abuse allegations against him.

Members of the Philadelphia City Council voted unanimously this week to let Robert S. Kelly know that he is not welcomed in the city, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The official resolution comes following the explosive six-part Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly”, which can now be streamed on TVNZ OnDemand.
“This resolution is about fundamentally stating a public declaration that R. Kelly and sexual predators like him don’t belong in a public sphere, with public support. This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice,” Helen Gym, an at-large member of city council, told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“We reject a system that silences Black women and accepts Black pain,” Gym wrote on Twitter.

“We believe survivors. R. Kelly is not welcome in Philadelphia. Today our resolution honoring the #MuteRKelly movement passed in @PHLCouncil. Philly stands with survivors.”

Gym told the Philadelphia Inquirer that the city council supported survivors of sexual abuse and sex trafficking.

Police are investigating the singer in the wake of the documentary.

“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,” she told the newspaper. “I believe that R. Kelly and predators like him should be shamed and banished from the public sphere.”

Legally, R. Kelly cannot be arrested or physically removed if enters the city but Gym said her resolution was meant to send a message to the singer that the city will not tolerate men like him in their city.

The #MuteRKelly campaign, which launched in Atlanta, and has become a national movement in the wake of the Lifetime docuseries.

During the six part documentary series, which aired in the United States on January 3, survivors share allegations on the years of sexual coercion, exploitation and physical abuse they endured at the hands of the Ignition – Remix singer.

Since airing in the United States, the US Police have launched an investigation into a number of allegations made against the singer.

R. Kelly was set for shows in Australia this year, before continuing to New Zealand for one show in Auckland, but promoters cancelled the dates after a public outcry against the singer.

Strongman Finally Breaks His Silence On Prosper – Nana Ama Issue

Published

Strongman

Ghana was on fire some 2-3 weeks ago when Strongman and Medikal took the whole nation on an exciting ride.

Strongman and Medikal had a fierce lyrical battle and several shots were thrown at each other in four different songs.

In Medikal’s second reply to Strongman dubbed “The Last Burial”, he took a swipe at Strongman’s girlfriend Nana Ama.

According to Medikal, one guy by name Prosper fingered Nana Ama and didn’t even have $£* with her because her vayjay stunk.

Medikal went on to say in the same song that after all this, Nana Ama was given just Ghc2000.

Social media went haywire after this sudden revelation and Nana Ama was severely mocked and trolled due to that.

Strongman has reacted for the very first time concerning this issue and he said they aren’t aware of any guy with that name.

“Nana Ama and I have no knowledge of this guy and there is no truth in what Medikal said. She is my girlfriend and I know her very well. I know how she is.” Strongman stated in an interview with Delay.

The rapper indicated that he can bet with his life and even swear that Nana Ama can never do a thing like that.

“If she had a bad smell down there, then I would have believed to an extent that the Prosper thing was true. But since she is very okay down there, there is no way the Prosper issue would be true”

Strongman and Nana Ama have been dating for close to 4 years now and Strongman also disclosed that for sure Nana Ama is his wife!

I Haven’t Slept With Any Of My Managers : Eazzy

Eazzy

Songstress Eazzy has disclosed that she hasn’t dated any her managers before and has also given the advantages and disadvantages of dating a manager.

Reacting to artiste manager Bulldog’s claim that managers should sleep with their female artists on Radio Central with Amansan Krakye, Eazzy admitted that Bulldog is right in some way.

“I think he is right in a way and he is wrong in a way also. He is right because for an artist to do well the manager has to have full interest. He has to think about the artist when he is sleeping, waking up, eating so if the person is your boyfriend or husband you will become the most important person to him.

He wants to see you do well, he wants to see you explore and go all the places an artist will like to go. He will put all his energy into it. So if the person loves you that’s the good side”, she explained.

Eazzy also explained that there is a negative side to because it doesn’t always make the business a success.

“The negative side is sometimes when you mix business with pleasure, it doesn’t always last, it doesn’t always go well. That’s why I said there is a good side to what he is saying and bad side as well”, she added.

The “Wengeze” hitmaker also revealed that she hasn’t slept with any of her managers before but if you are a female artiste and your manager is in love with you it’s not bad.

“Personally I haven’t had a situation whereby my manager and I have dated. I have always love business with the business so when there is an issue and we can’t solve it we can go our peaceful ways and can still be cool. I have been under a label like Lynx, I didn’t have a relationship with any of them so right now if Richie meets me he can hug me, raise me, we can talk online. But if the person is was you love it becomes difficult so for me I wish women will push their talents with determination, hard work and what is meant for you will come. But if you have a manager and he loves you that’s not bad. There is 50/50 advantage and disadvantage too”, she divulged.
