Nicki Minaj performed in front of a huge crowd in Luanda, Angola last night despite the pleas and critics from human rights activists for her show to be cancelled.
The 33-year-old rapper who arrived Angola in a private jet, was reportedly paid $2 million to headline the concert hosted by Unitel communications, a company which is in large part controlled and owned by the family of Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos.
President Dos Santos who has been in power since 1979 is accused of overseeing corruption, enriching his family and friends while majority of Angolans live on less than $2 a day despite being Africa’s second-largest oil producer.
Minaj shared a photo of herself with Isabel dos Santos and captioned it:
‘Oh no big deal…she’s just the 8th richest woman in the world.’ GIRL POWER!!!!! This motivates me soooooooooo much!!!! S/O to any woman on a paper chase. Get your own!!!! Success is yours for the taking!!!!! #Angola thank u to the women who brought me out here as well.’
In 2013, Mariah Carey was accused of callously collecting money from a dictator and now Nicki Minaj has come under fire for doing the same thing BUT guess a girl had to do what she did for the money… What do you think guys?
