“Nicki Minaj, one of the hottest acts in the world right now, will be treating her multitude of fans to a scintillating performance,” Johnny Gourzong, executive producer of the event said in a press release. “Last year we had a tremendous festival with great Jamaican and international acts. This time around patrons will again be treated to amazing performances with the likes of Mavado, I-Octane, Beenie Man, Jah Cure and so many other great artists.”
He went on to celebrate that R. Kelly will be present as well.
“The Reggae Sumfest team is excited to be presenting R. Kelly on the Sumfest stage. We have been trying to contract him for the last five years and it is great to see that it is finally happening. We are expecting a spectacular performance from Mr. Kelly.”
This will be the singer’s second time performing on a Jamaican stage sine 1996.
