We’re of course referring to Nicki Manaj basically giving the middle finger to human rights activists and performing in Angola on Saturday. And, on top of that, she posted photos of her bejeweled behind on Instagram to rub it in.
Minaj, 33, performed in the African nation at a holiday concert hosted by Unitel, a telecom company controlled by Angola’s ruthless dictator, José Eduardo dos Santos.
She will reportedly receive $2 million for the appearance, according to reports.
“The payment you are receiving from your Angolan sponsors is the result of government corruption and human-rights violations,” Thor Halvorssen, president of the Human Rights Foundation, wrote in an open letter to her last week.
Minaj reacted by posting to Instagram a photo of her boarding a Gulfstream jet to Angola. If you’re keeping track of her “EFF-YOUs” to activists, she posted another pic upon landing, then two more before the show.
“Oh hai, Angola. Ready for the show?” she wrote in a caption on a pic of her in a sheer bodysuit (scroll down to see that pic below).
Dos Santos is not a nice guy, and that’s putting it mildly. He has ruled Angola with an iron fist since 1979, exerting control through rigged elections and suppression of dissent.
This year, his regime killed some 200 members of an opposition party and imprisoned 17 activists for reading about nonviolent resistance, quotes the NY Post.
He stole at least $32 billion in oil revenue from his country, the International Monetary Fund alleges.
Nearly 70 percent of Angola’s 21 million citizens survive on less than $2 per day, and few have regular electricity.
Mariah Carey faced similar outcry in 2013, when she accepted $1 million to sing for dos Santos and his daughter, Isabel, co-owner of Unitel.
