Nicki Minaj Will Headline A Music Festival In Saudi This Month And The Reaction Has Been CRAZY


Singer and rapper Nicki Minaj is scheduled to headline a music festival that’s the first of its kind in Saudi Arabia’s coastal city of Jeddah this month.

Fans are ecstatic, while some are confused- seeing as it is unlike the conservative country to host such events.

The news comes only a few weeks after popular Dubai club, White, announced it was launching a new venue in Jeddah- which was quickly followed by backlash, when it actually opened as a lounge rather than a club.
