Former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Ihuoma Nnadi-Emenike has spoken up on her encounter with singer R.Kelly, who spotted her in South Africa some years back when she was 16 and seemingly took interest in her. Ihuoma, who is now the wife of former Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike, shared her experience in the wake of the current trending docu-series focusing on the controversial hip hop legend, whose real name is Robert Kelly and titled “Surviving R. Kelly”.
The mother of one says watching the docuseries made her recall how she and R Kelly locked eyes that day at the mall she worked a part-time job, prompting her to assume the R ’n’ B legend prefers being with underage girls. “You guys, I actually had an experience with R Kelly. I was about 16, working part time at a retail store in Sandton (Johannesburg).
We heard that R Kelly was in the mall, so we were standing outside to see him pass by and I swear we locked eyes. He stopped and said ‘hi’ to me, me out of everyone??! And was asking me my name when my boss called us back in!! I was angry at my boss though but watching this documentary now, I’m like wow. Maybe truly underage girls were his type and he was about to show interest,” she wrote.
