Congrats to the singer.
Meanwhile, months ago Jaywon got more than he’d have expected after getting bashed on American rapper, 50 Cent’s Instagram page for wishing embattled RnB singer, R. Kelly a happy birthday and calling him a ‘KING’.
50 Cent shared a video of R.Kelly performing at a club on his 52nd birthday amidst the backlash which has followed the controversial docu-series #SurvivingRKelly saying ”At the club and got b*tches somewhere shitting in buckets”.
Jaywon as a fan of R. Kelly went into the comment section and wrote; “Happy birthday King @rkelly. King forever.”
You wouldnt believe the amount of backlash he got from the comment.
Infuriated by Jaywon’s felicitations to R. Kelly, other commentators wasted no time to express their ‘disgust’.

It is rich, live, refreshing, timely and timeless all at once. Jaywon may make a bold claim but none can say he doesn’t work for it every step of the way. Only time will tell if he has indeed earned the title.’
