R. Kelly is Reportedly Planning to Flee to Africa Amid Investigation
As investigators continue to find more evidence against him, it has been reported that the singer is planning to flee to Africa.
In the wake of mounting allegations of sexual assault and abuse against singer R. Kelly, and recent docu-series Surviving R. Kelly, it is rumored that he is allegedly planning to flee the United States and come to the African continent. According to Angela Martinez during The Breakfast Club on Thursday, investigators received a tip from an anonymous individual, revealing the singer's intentions to flee.
While nothing can be confirmed at this point, it is not far-fetched to consider that R. Kelly may, in fact, flee to Africa, and more specifically, South Africa, as he has established some ties in the country following his performance during the 2010 FIFA World Cup and two other appearances thereafter.
Charlemagne tha God, during the same episode of The Breakfast Club, said:
"You think you can just pull up in Johannesburg and Nigeria and be welcomed with open arms? They got the internet too, and they know what's going on. His brothers in Africa will whoop his ass."

Two Dallas Radio Stations Have Banned R. Kelly’s Music https://t.co/Tt23XM5FxG https://t.co/64QzmcuP5v— The Source Magazine (@The Source Magazine)1547105705.0
However, with many South Africans having been equally appalled by the docu-series and the numerous accounts of abuse by women and joined the #MuteRKelly movement, it is unlikely that they will welcome him with open arms should he decide to go there. In addition, multiple celebrities, such as among others, actress Pearl Thusi and singers Jimmy Nevis and Kabomo have publicly come out and spoken against R Kelly.
The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) is also currently in talks to prevent R. Kelly's music from being played by all their radio stations.
