Nicki Minaj Pockets $2 Million of Angolan Taxpayers Money

The human rights watch is on the neck of US rapper Nicki Minaj after her controversial Christmas concert in Angola. Her performance for which she earned $2 million was sponsored by Unitel, a state-run telecom company. The country is headed by the dictator Dos Santos that has had an iron fist over the country’s leadership for the last 36 years.
This was in contradiction of her outspoken activism against racial injustices in America. Her performance reflected a double sided individual that fights injustices in one place while at the same time being part of social injustices committed against the people of Angola. Thor views her activism against injustices and support of education charities in the United Sates while playing a part to social exploitation of Angolans as sheer display hypocrisy.
The human rights movements base their argument on the fact that she accepted such an inflated pay from an agency run by the corrupt Dos Santos government. This was at the expense of the locals, most of whom live below the $2 a day poverty line with a life expectancy of just 52 years at birth. Her actions only served to legitimize the dictatorial and corrupt government and approve the humiliation of the Angolan nationals to her friends and legion of fans across the world that view her as more than an artist.
However, various scholars and notables from across the world hold a different opinion about the eradication of dictatorial governments. One that necessarily has little to do with international celebrities. They are of the opinion that, while international organizations can play a role in pushing for democracies through aids, the lot has to come from the individual country’s subjects. The only limitation to this remains if the activists are constantly killed and harassed by their respective governments.
