R&B singer-songwriter and record producer R Kelly has been added to Reggae Sumfest 2011.

Music news understands that the singer is expected to hit the concert's stage on Friday, July 22. It will be R Kelly's second performance in Jamaica. His Jamaican debut in 1996 was surrounded by controversy at a concert at Jamworld, St Catherine. The singer, who at that time was one of the hottest artistes in R&B, had dropped his pants while performing. This was followed by a public backlash.

Sumfest Marketing manager Marcia Mcdonna talks with Music News about some of the entertainers already confirmed for the 2011 staging of the greatest reggae show on earth.

Reggae Sumfest will take place on July 17-23 in Montego Bay.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
