Nicki Minaj performed in Angola this weekend and loved every minute of it.
The lady lyricist brought up a whole crop on concerns when she agreed to do a show in Angola for a company called Unitel, which is partially owned by the country’s dictator José Eduardo dos Santos. His government has had a long history of committing human rights violations, and many thought it was a bad idea for Nicki to perform there.
Despite a call from The Human Rights Foundation for her to cancel the appearance, Nicki did the show last night anyway.
Nicki didn’t seem too bothered about the controversy her performance stirred up, though. Instead, she just reveled in all of the excitement from fans that turned up for the show.
