Nicki Minaj performed in front of a huge crowd of fans in Luanda, Angola last night. The rap
superstar 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 enriching his family and friends while
majority of Angolans live in poverty. His daughter Isabel
has been listed as a billionaire and one of the richest
women in the world.
Human rights and anti-corruption activists had appealed
to Nicki Minaj to cancel her performance.
Jeffery Smith of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights
‘Nicki Minaj is following in the footsteps of Mariah Carey,
callously taking money from a dictator… who has
effectively and ruthlessly choked free expression. This
sustained crackdown on basic human rights in Angola
has swept up activists, opposition members, journalists
and even musicians.’
She ignored their advice, arrived in Angola and happily
rocked the stage.

President’s daughter Isabel.
