A famous United States singer R. Kelly arrived Thursday in Addis Ababa to perform a concert.
Kelly along with his band arrived in Ethiopia to perform a concert for the New Year Eve at the Sheraton Addis, which is one of the luxury hotels in Africa.
He is expected to perform his concert on Friday night where thousands of people are expected to attend the concert.
The entrance ticket for Kelly’s concert is around $130 per person.
A number of Ethiopian singers are also expected to perform at the concert.
The hotel annually celebrates the New Year by inviting world famous artists.
Though Ethiopians are celebrating their New Year in September, many people share the mood of the celebrations of the Western New Year celebrations.
Sheraton Addis did not want to disclose how much Kelly was paid for the concert. Beyonce performed her concert in the 2009 New Year celebrations. --APA
