As many are aware, the isolated, uncolonized African nation of Wakanda does not take kindly to outsiders. It seems R. Kelly in particular is not welcome within the melanated paradise.
The excitement surrounding Black Panther’s blockbuster weekend had everyone ready to jump on the first thing smokin’ with Chadwick Boseman and Lupita Nyongo’o to the imaginary realm. Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport even got in the action, posting a photo to Twitter showing a flight preparing to depart to Wakanda.
Kelly thought he’d partake in the Black Panther frenzy and tweeted that he was en route to Wakanda. People on Twitter, however, wasted no time informing the accused pedophile and kidnapper that he was not allowed in the Black utopia.

It should not come as a surprise to anyone that the R & B superstar is not wanted in Wakanda, considering he’s barely wanted in his own country. Thanks to the #MuteRKelly campaign, several R. Kelly concerts were canceled around the U.S.
“I have been hearing about R. Kelly’s sexual abuse of young black women since I was in my teens. Every few years more women come out with their stories. More images and videos surface. More black girls are scarred for life just as they are coming into their womanhood and sexuality,” said Oronike Odeleye, one of the creators of #MuteRKelly.
“We will continue to disrupt, continue to demonstrate, continue to call him out, continue to raise awareness until hopefully one day soon, we can step in the name of justice at his trial.”
Recently, R. Kelly had been reportedly evicted from his Georgia home where some people have claimed he held young women against their will.
