Nicki Minaj Opt-Out of Saudi Arabia Festival

American Female Rapper Nicki Minaj took to her social media page and made another announcement that she Opt-Out of Saudi Arabia Festival.

The reason behind her Opting Out was as a result of Human Right Activist CEO who asked her to make this move and not attend the festival reason being the Saudi King does not give Equal rights to Women and the LGBT community.

She made a statement which reads “After careful reflection I have decided to no longer move forward with my scheduled concert at Jeddah World Fest.
“While I want nothing more than to bring my show to fans in Saudi Arabia, after better educating myself on the issues, I believe it is important for me to make clear my support for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community and freedom of expression.”

Saudi Arabia is a country which is known to have taken stance against the LGBT community and even punish people who are seen doing the act.
