Kenyan actress, Lupita Nyong’o wants American RnB star R Kelly to be properly investigated over claims of sexual abuse on underage girls.
The ‘Black Panther’ star has thrown her weight behind ‘Time’s Up’ campaign that led to a similar push against comedian Bill Cosby over sexual assaults allegations against him.
The ‘Time’s Up’ started the campaign against R Kelly with a call for fresh investigation on the musician’s past accusations of sexual and physical abuse on young girls.
Lupita wrote, ‘we demand appropriate investigations and inquiries into the allegations of R. Kelly’s abuse’.
So far, R Kelly has successfully defended himself against the allegations even as the list of women accusing him of sexual harassment keeps growing. The musician has welcomed the ‘Time’s Up’ campaign against him, through his spokesperson Khabrill Barnard, but termed the move as unjust and off target.
