Nicki Minaj Performs In Sheer Outfit For Angolan Dictator’s Concert Despite Pleas From Human Rights Activists


'Oh hai, Angola!': Nicki Minaj posted this photo on Instagram on Saturday after arriving in Angola to play a Christmas concert for a company part-owned by the family of the country's President Eduardo dos Santos

33-year-old rapper Nicki Minaj performed to a packed crowd Saturday, despite human rights activists and critics calling for her concert to be canceled in the impoverished African nation of Angola. Minaj was reportedly paid $2million for the performance Saturday, where crowd members broke into a chant of her name during the show. The Grammy nominated rapper shared two videos of the packed audience screaming in pandemonium at the concert to her Instagram account and captioned one video writing:

‘Angola has my heart.’


73-year-old Dos Santos, pictured above, has been accused of overseeing corruption, misrule and intimidation in the country that suffers endemic poverty, despite being Africa’s second-largest oil producer. She  was performing in the capital city of Luanda at a Christmas party hosted by the Unitel communications firm, which is part-owned by the family of the country’s controversial President Jose Eduardo dos Santos.

No qualms: The 33-year-old hip hop star arrived in the impoverished African nation on a private jet 

According to the United Nations Development Programme, more than a third of the country’s population of about 24million people are living below the poverty line, and nearly 70 percent of the population lives on less than $2 a day.
