Tables Turn As Journalist Who Featured On Surviving R. Kelly Is Accused Of Workplace Sexual Harassment

R. Kelly

A journalist who featured in the ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ docuseries has been accused of workplace sexual harassment.

Touré Neblett, a music journalist who interviewed R. Kelly for BET in 2018, appeared on Surviving R.Kelly to talk about his interview with the R&B legend. In the documentary, Touré said he didn’t get the answers he was looking for when it came to the musician’s “like” of teenage, particularly underage, girls

Earlier this week, Touré appeared on ‘The Clubhouse with Mouse Jones’ podcast to discuss Mr Kelly again. The interview was shared on the show’s Instagram post advertising the episode Touré appeared on. But one comment left on the post by a social media user caught the eye of social media users.

The lady who dropped the comment accused Touré of sexual harassment. The woman, a make-up artist who goes by the name Dani, said Touré sexually harassed her while she worked with him on a show.

She wrote:
He couldn’t stop asking me to do anal, how I looked naked, if I had sex over the weekend, what it would be like to f–k me, what his cum would look like on my face.

Dani added that she had to make sure to have crew members in the room with her while she got Touré ready for his Weekly show. Eventually, Dani quit but allegedly reported Touré to human resources and according to her account, he was immediately fired.

In an exclusive interview with Essence, Dani shared additional details about her experience with Touré.

She said:

I worked with him most of 2017, I left in October, before he left.

After Dani quit, she says she reported Toure´ to human resources. He left Time after that; according to his rep because his agreement was over.

Dani claimed to have been sent an apology via Instagram from Touré, which she shared with Essence. As to what made Dani report Touré to his employer after she quit? She said it was because he was doing media appearances talking about Harvey Weinstein and his allegations of sexual misconduct.

She said:
He went on Hot97 to talk about Harvey Weinstein (after he apologized).

I accepted his apology and was ok to move on but, you can’t be a sexual predator and go around shaming other predators.

Dani said she shared her story on Instagram because she saw Touré on Surviving R. Kelly and the media appearances he was making.

She said:
When I saw him going around as R. Kelly’s docuseries spokesman to different radio stations, the lies had to stop. I’ve worked with Mouse Jones before and wanted him to know the truth.

Touré has issued a response through his rep.

His response reads:

On the show, our team, including myself, engaged in edgy, crass banter, that at the time I did not think was offensive for our tight-knit group. I am sorry for my language and for making her feel uncomfortable in any way. As a lead on the show, I should have refrained from this behavior. I have learned and grown from this experience.

Below are screenshots of the apology allegedly made by Touré to Dani in November 2017.

According to the Swedish Grammy nominee, he will choose Kwesi Arthur over any artiste in Ghana because “I think our two styles would fit together. I’m a big fan of his music.” He said.

In an interview with the artiste who is based in Sweden, his plan in the music industry is to inspire, motivate the youth to be themselves and be better. Lazee whose father was a DJ, grew up influenced by music. He chose to do rap because; he said: “I felt that was my attitude at the time and something I could relate to.”

Sharing his experience as a black guy doing urban music in a white-dominated country he said, “Doing urban music in a white-dominated country isn’t easy but, I had no choice but to believe in myself because no one else could see my vision. It hasn’t been smooth, it’s all self-motivation.”

He has worked with Raekwon (Wu-Tang), Sean Kingston, Krayzie Bone (Bone Thugs N) Harmony, Swedish House Mafia, Prince of 4×4 and has over 500 tracks.
Lazee said “I look up to artists that’s accomplished what I trying to do. Everyone from Jay-Z, Drake, Diddy are all big inspirations for me.”
His latest song ‘Flex’ was inspired by his trip to Ghana. “It’s my first time singing in my native language which is Ga and English. So I hope the people like it.”

About Lazee.

Mawule Kulego also known artist/songwriters/songwriter from Sweden. In 2006, Lazee released his first mixtape, ‘It Is What It Is’, a collaboration with hip hop legend DJ Kay Slay (NYC). With influences from Rap, RnB, and Reggae, Lazee found a way to combine that with all the 90\s rock pop music he grew up listening to in Europe.

He quickly found his strength in writing and composing a sound that’s familiar but new. Lazee’s first single ‘Rock Away’ was an instant hit and entered the charts in the spring of 2008, before it’s even officially released. It ended up in the top 10, and rotated frequently on all major Scandinavian radio stations and Swedish MTV.

After that, his first album ‘Setting Standards’, was released. Sharing the stage with acts such as Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, Ne-Yo, Wyclef Jean, 50 Cent and being adviced by the legendary Quincy Jones, Lazee has proved not only to be a great performer but also a great entertainer. After studying Performing Arts at UCLA, Lazee focused more on his songwriting and has since worked with both seasoned and new producers.
