A few weeks ago, it was revealed that a white night club was being opened in Jeddah Saudi Arabia. But soon after the news, widespread confusion and anger from many people caused the government to stop from the night club from opening.
But now something else has become a reason for people to get confused and enraged. A music festival in Suadi Arabia is soon to be held and the headliner of this festival is none other than Nicki Minaj.
For those of you who may not be aware of the female rapper, she isn’t exactly known for decent performances. Her performances usually include her wearing revealing outfits with songs that contain explicit lyrics. Something that the norms of Saudi Arabia do not permit at all.
The rapper will be performing at Jeddah World Fest on the 18th of July. Given how Nicki Minaj deals with her performances, people were naturally confused. Why didn’t the festival management team invite someone else to highlight the event? There has been a lot of confusion amongst people.
The recent loosening of restrictions on different forms of entertainment in Saudi Arabia is part of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman’s plan to diversify the country’s economy. But can the government go through with the performance after so many voices have been raised on social media? Will they give into pressure once again and cancel the tour of the rapper? We’ll have to wait and see.
The music festival will also feature other musicians like Steve Aoki and more. The names of other musicians are set to be revealed soon.
