R. Kelly’s daughter Buku Abi says she’s lost deals because of who her father is.

“Simply based off of my last name. I think for me especially ’cause a lot of people don’t know, music is my first passion. I love music. I’m a singer, songwriter, I love music, and I been doing music since I was 13 years old,” she said after explaining that people accuse her of only getting certain opportunities because of her dad.

She continued: “That’s the first time I ever wrote a song was at 13, and from 13 up until 24 I’ve been trying to get into the music business. Trying to get into the industry and all those years it’s either been you’re getting it because of who your dad is or you not getting it because of who your dad is. I’ve been this close to a record deal and when they found out who I was it got swiped away…the paperwork was drawn up and everything. Flew out to L.A., and everything. [Somebody] found out who I was, and that was it.”

R. Kelly is currently on trial in Chicago, facing various sex crime charges. He says he is innocent.
