Despite being a leader of an impoverished African country of Angola, the controversial President, Jose Eduardo dos Santos had American hip hop star, Nicki Minaj perform at his Christmas party for the whooping sum of $2million.
Minaj reportedly performed in Luanda, Angola on Saturday night despite calls from human rights activists and critics to cancel her concert for the malnourished country. In the wake of the criticisms, the singer shared photos of her stage wear on Instagram after arriving the country in a private jet.
Dos Santos, 73, has been accused of overseeing corruption, misrule and intimidation in the country that suffers endemic poverty, despite being Africa’s second-largest oil producer.
According to the United Nations Development Programme, more than a third of the country’s population of about 24 million people are living below the poverty line, and nearly 70 percent of the population lives on less than $2 a day.
