A DJ coming to the Kingdom can be seen as yet another crossover from the usual performers that come to Saudi. With the General Entertainment Authority’s back-up on this event, it is clear that the country is opening up its doors to allowing more variety of performances here.
The Kingdom had rapper Nelly perform just months ago, but this one tops the cake. Oh well, we’re not complaining.
