    Default R.Kelly to Headline THISDAY Music Festival

    R&B superstar and one of the world’s most influential producers, R.Kelly, will be jetting into Africa for the first time ever to perform at the prestigious THISDAY Music Festival 2009 in South Africa’s Sun City Super Bowl and Grand West Casino in Cape Town on June 27 and 29, 2009.
    This, however, will be preceded by a Command Performance at the ARISE Africa Fashion Awards at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa on June 20, 2009 where the platinum-selling artiste will be the star attraction.
    R.Kelly is expected to proceed to Lagos and Abuja in Nigeria from July 3 - 5, 2009 and to London for his first show in the United Kingdom in eight years at the Wembly Arena, London on July 8, 2009.

    According to a tour schedule of the influential artiste released last night by ARISE Magazine, which is organizing the shows, R.Kelly will be performing at the grand finale of THISDAY Music Festival 2009 as part of the multi-city tour.
    The THISDAY Music Festival, conceived in Africa but increasingly taking the world of entertainment to new levels, will have several African acts sharing the world's stage with the music icon.
    R.Kelly said: "I'm very excited about my first visit to Africa. I've dreamed about this for a long time and it’s finally here. It will be one of the highlights of not only my career but my life. And I can’t wait to be back in the UK to perform live for my fans there –who have been some of the best in the world."

    Yay I'm so excited for him!!! I know how much he's wanted this. I can't wait to go to Africa for the first time either. I know he'll have a blast. He has loyal fans over there. But it said he was jetting. What about his fear of planes??

    Psychopaths have a Hidden Content and grossly inflated view of their own Hidden Content and importance, a truly astounding egocentricity and sense of entitlement, and see themselves as the center of the universe, justified in living according to their own rules.

    Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the effects their actions have on others, no matter how devastating these might be. They may appear completely forthright about the matter, calmly stating that they have no sense of guilt, are not sorry for the ensuing pain, and that there is no reason now to be concerned.

    Many of the characteristics displayed by psychopaths are closely associated with a profound lack of empathy and inability to construct a mental and emotional "facsimile" of another person.

    Psychopaths seem to suffer a kind of emotional poverty that limits the range and depth of their feelings. At times they appear to be cold and unemotional while nevertheless being prone to dramatic, shallow, and short-lived displays of feeling.
    Obligations and commitments mean nothing to psychopaths.

    But here is the crux: Psychopaths don't feel they have psychological or emotional problems, and they see no reason to change their behavior to conform with societal standards they do not agree with.

    This is great news! I am very happy for him and his fans in Africa and the UK! I wish he would do a video diary so we can witness his impressions.

    Well he said in that B.E.T interview that he wanted to head over to Africa so looks like he is doing just that....hopefully there'll be more dates in the UK too...I'll keep a close eye of this as it develops...
