Alicia Keys Apologizes Over Tobacco "Advertising"

Alicia Keys has responded to criticism over a concert, after it emerged her forthcoming Jakarta show appeared to be sponsored by a tobacco company.

Tobacco Free Kids claim posters advertising the show, made it seem like the R&B singer's concert was being held in association with Mild Live Production - a subsidiary of tobacco producers Philip Morris International.

A statement from Alicia Keys says after the issue was made aware, she "immediately asked for an investigation and that corrective actions be taken."

"As a result, the tobacco company has respectfully withdrawn their sponsorship and all billboards, signage and other forms of advertising will be immediately removed." Keys also apologized for "any misleading advertising initially associated with the show".
