Some decades ago, American R&B star R. Kelly was an inspiration to many musician and he was often cited as a major influence in their career.
But since he became embroiled child molestation accusations, no one wants to be associated with him — his record label, friends, colleagues and even some of his own family members have disowned him.
So it came with little surprise when Nigerian singer Adekunle Gold rejected a comparison with Kelly on Twitter.
A Twitter user tweeted at Adekunle that he looked like the troubled R&B legend, however the the Afropop star found the comparison repulsive obviously because of R. Kelly’s paedophile tag on him.
“God forbid,” he replied the fan who compared him to Kelly.
Our own R. Kelly. U sha look like him maybe cos of ur hair do sha
